New York, NY –

Talk about your hip-hop summits; Cash
Money/Universal Records’ reigning hip-hop icons
Lil Wayne and Birdman are gearing up
to release their first studio album together,
Like Father Like Son, which is
scheduled to hit stores this fall, and includes the
first single “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy.”

“There’s nothing like spittin’ off the same page,”
claimed the duo, who between them, have sold more
than 7 million albums. The new disc is set
to feature guest appearances by a host of stellar
hip-hop artists including Fat Joe, Lil Jon,
T-Pain and Rick Ross, as well as
showcasing the talent of production masters Swizz
Beats and Scott Storch, among others.
Birdman and Lil Wayne have often
appeared on each other’s solo releases, but never
before have they released a full-length album
together. Their Like Father Like Son
collaboration marks yet another historical milestone
proffered by the prolific Cash Money imprint, the
New Orleans hip-hop empire which launched in 1991
and is responsible for a diverse array of best
selling artists.

Most recently, Lil Wayne garnered
platinum-plus status for his across-the-board smash
album Tha Carter II, his fifth solo
album (and second platinum release). Lil
Wayne recently was honored with an MTV
“Sucker Free MC Of The Year” nomination, with
viewers ultimately voting to crown the winner.

The tireless star also recently wrapped production
on the video for his latest single, “Shooter”
featuring Robin Thicke. The New York
Times recently raved about Lil Wayne’s
performance with Thicke (son of TV
entertainer Alan Thicke) on ‘The Tonight show
With Jay Leno,” citing Wayne’s penchant for
mixing it up with the crooner and his song “Oh
Shooter,” as genre-defying ‘cross-under’
promotion genius.

Hip-hop mogul/artist Birdman is coming off his
pivotal 2005 release, Fast Money, his
second solo
effort, featuring the radio staples “Get Your Shine
On” and “Neck Of The Woods,” both of which featured
Lil Wayne. Birdman’s signature rap
style and
on-point business acumen has made him a legend both
behind the microphone and behind the scenes, as him
and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams
have guided
Cash Money from a start-up hip-hop imprint more than
15 years ago, to a 30 million-plus selling global
empire known around the globe.

The enterprising mogul has managed to stay true to
the principles of the street while nurturing a
myriad of successful commercial endeavors, including
a successful footwear collection in a venture with
Lugz, narrating a popular video game,
Midnight Club
3: Dub Edition from Rockstar Games, and
making his
feature film debut in the 2005 movie Beauty Shop.

Like Father Like Son kicks off yet
another chapter
in the amazing Cash Money story, and will cement
Baby and Lil Wayne’s position as bona fide
cross-cultural superstars, to be reckoned with.

Birdman, along with his brother Cash Money
co-CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams, is also
$3000 on behalf of their charity Cash Money For Kids
to the Morningside Park Soccer Program in Miami.
The donation will go directly to the children’s
soccer program for new equipment. “We always
believe in giving back to the community, and we want
to make sure the kids have recreational outlets that
may help them stay out of trouble.” states Ronald
“Slim” Williams. Bryan
“Birdman” Williams says,
“It’s important for young kids to be able to play
safe and have fun. Hopefully this will help the
children of Morningside Park enjoy their day a
little more.”

The Cash Money Records CEOs have a history of
back to their community. Each year including last
year, they have held their Annual Turkey Give
for needy families in their native city of New
Orleans. Displaced after Hurricane Katrina, the
Williams brothers have adopted Miami as their new
home base.
