Birdman & Slim Sign EDM Duo Stafford Brothers To Cash Money

The DJ duo will release their new single "Hello" featuring Lil Wayne and Christina Milian.

Cash Money Records co-CEOs Birdman and Slim have announced the signing of DJ duo Stafford Brothers to their imprint, marking the label's first EDM artists.

Stafford Brothers sign to the imprint through a dance music joint venture with CHM. The pair, known for their pumped up shows, will release their first single for the imprint "Hello" featuring Lil Wayne and Christina Milian soon.

"The Stafford Brothers blew me away with their energy, superb production skills and strong remixes,” Birdman says of the group, which has shared stages with Ke$ha and The Chemical Brothers. “Their music may have a party vibe, but that didn’t fool Slim and I. With their ownership of nightclubs, their own reality television show, international tours and dedication to their craft, we knew the Stafford Brothers were serious and would fit right in with the hardworking YMCMB family.”

“Every artist that we were keen to collaborate with seemed to be part of the YMCMB family,” says Matt Stafford. “We had the chance to attend Lil Wayne’s 30th birthday party and spend time with Birdman, Slim, Lil Wayne and the whole crew and we felt right at home amongst the family. We knew we could do great work under Slim & Birdman’s direction, with the YMCMB artists.”

“There was no question," adds Chris Stafford. "Hailing from Australia, what could be better than signing to Cash Money Records, an iconic US label that has a global fan base?”

    It's not like YMCMB is rap anymore, they are about entertainment. I gave up on any rapper in that label, but they are still making money. Smart move signing more entertainers. Just like 50 Cent signed Pauly D, it's all about the guap for these guys.

    YMCMB is more than a record label. Its an EMPIRE! YMCMB is global. Bitch niggas gone hate! If the artists dont come out with shit its because THEY arent ready. Birdman gives them complete creative control so its up to THEM (the artist) to come up with that music. YMCMB!

    They will make little to no money during their short lived tenure at Cash Money.

    House DJ's make the most money in clubs by pressing "play" on their laptop...not selling albums....its not really that savvy, but its a move most labels should have been doing few years back...there just late to the party.
