birdmanCash Money Records
Launches Publishing Imprint

by Taylor Nix
November 2010


Rap label Cash Money Records home to some of Hip Hop’s premiere acts, has a new branch called Cash Money Content, which is a publishing partnership with the Atria Books imprint of Simon & Schuster. To jump start their new venture, Ronald and Bryan “Birdman” Williams have acquired the rights to Robert Beck’s aka Iceberg Slim semi autobiographical book titled, Pimp and street literature favorite Wahida Clark’s Justify My Thug.

They plan to promote their titles using the same successful tactics that have made their Cash Money Records label famous. “You're going to see TV commercials, billboards, and plenty of YouTube videos featuring artists and writers talking about books … our books will also be sold at our concerts," Vernon Brown, the labels business manager said.

Marketing will include cross promote the label’s signed artist and authors who will appear at both book signings as well as concerts that will showcase celebrities, allowing for maximum exposure for their music and books.

They intend to publish at least six books per year. The first book Raw Law: An Urban Guide to Criminal Justice by attorney Muhammad Ibn Bashir is slated for release in February.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.SeoOptimizedRankings.com&quo t;>Seo Plugin</a>

I am not currently a writer but I have always dreamed of writing a book. I have great ideas and enough life stories to be a gangster rapper. My stories would hit home with young people and parents of today's youth. I am a miami native by way of Opa Locka/ Miami Gardens. I can be contacted at wbable01@yahoo.com. PS I feel my stories will change the world
