Bryan Williams told some of his close friends the original motivation for starting the label:For its first few years (1991–1994), 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), Kilo G, Lil Slim, and PxMxWx. In 1995, the label signed young rappers B.G., Young Buck and Lil Wayne. The signees marked what would be the second wave of Cash Money artists. In 1997, B.G. and Lil Wayne formed the group the Hot Boys together with Juvenile (rapper) (who had already been regionally successful before Cash Money). Although initially they didn't make much impact outside of the region, they would become the label's most well known artists.
