Thursday, August 23, Cash Money founders Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams were honored with the Icon Award at the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip Hop Awards. Hip-Hop Wired caught up with notable Hip-Hop figures like Future, Hit-Boy, Curren$y, and more to see how the New Orleans-based moved influenced their careers.

Reasonings varied, but one thing remained consistent: Each person cited Cash Money’s ability to create an independent movement and make hit records. See what the artists had to say in the recap footage below.
