[Mp3+New] Z Money Shawty Paid song download
Chicago-bred emcee Z money is prepping the arrival of his forthcoming Shawty Paid tape, set to arrive on May 10th by way of 1017 Records as the follow-up to 2018’s Chiraq Mogul.
Before it gets here, though, Z has dropped off the project opener “Shawty Paid Intro.” Produced by DY and J Money World, the new cut properly delivers on a taste of what’s come of the new effort.
“Shawty Paid is like an alter ego of mine,” Z Money tells FADER. “When you hear me say that before I rap, you know I’m about to go in on my money talk! this song is the perfect introduction to my next tape, and DY always brings the best out of me.”

Cash Money Records (formerly styled as Ca$h Money Records) is an American record label founded by two brothers, Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams. The label is distributed by Republic Records, which used to be Universal Republic. The label itself has been home to a roster of hip hop artists that includes Drake and Nicki Minaj, which has led to Cash Money to becoming one of the most successful record labels in hip-hop history.
Artists signed to Cash Money Records have achieved a combined 12 number one albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 7 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (Juvenile’s “Slow Motion”, Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop”, Jay Sean’s “Down” and Drake’s “One Dance”, “God’s Plan”, “Nice for What”, and “In My Feelings”).
Cash Money Records was founded in 1991. Bryan Williams told some of his close friends the motivation for starting the label:
I was hoping it would get us out of the projects and into a positive way of life. And we wanted to help other people get out of this poverty
Bryan “Birdman” Williams (pictured) founded Cash Money Records in 1991 with his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams.
Along the way he met a lot of influential people on the road with the Hot Boys. Wendy Day negotiated the deal between Cash Money and Universal Music Group’s Universal Records (now Republic Records), which became an 80%-20% distribution deal. Later, UMG acquired a portion of Cash Money Records, making it a UMG subsidiary.
For its first few years (1991–1997), Cash Money played host to a number of local releases by artists, selling only one album, without ever releasing a music video or having a Billboard hit. Some of the label’s releases garnered some regional success in New Orleans, Louisiana, but the label was little known to the national rap scene. Artists on the label during this period included the group U.N.L.V. (Uptown Niggas Living Violently), Lil Slim, Pimp Daddy, and PxMxWx. Cash Money Records’ opening salvo was the release of Kilo G’s ‘The Sleepwalker.’ Rapper Kilo G was just 15 years old when his Cash Money debut arrived in 1992, and his album was sold out of the trunk of the Williams brothers’ car. In 1993, the label signed young rappers B.G. and Lil Wayne they later formed The B.G.’z (Baby Gangstaz) and released True Story. The rest of the signees marked what would be the second wave of Cash Money artists. In the beginning of 1997, after Kilo G and Pimp Daddy was murdered, Cash Money signed a slur of new artists including Juvenile who already had a buzz in the streets in the early 1990s. At this time Turk and another local rapper by the name of Bulletproof aka lil Derrick joined the roster. In May 1997 Birdman organized a rap group that included Juvenile, B.G., Turk and Bulletproof. After the passing of his father lil Wayne joined the group and they became the Hot Boys. Shortly before the Hot Boys took off, Bulletproof left the group and was later killed in 2002. Cash Money’s big break came in 1998 when the Hot Boys, B.G. and Juvenile in particular, caught the attention of Universal Records executives.
