Over 30 million people have lost their jobs in the United states of America due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Job losses are having a big toll on rent payments across the states including New Orleans.

Responding to the plight of the people in New Orleans, the brothers and founders of record label, Cash Money Records, Bryan Williams also known as Birdman and Ronald Williams also known as Slim have donated $225,000 to a foundation to cover rents of the residents.

The money donated to Forward Together New Orleans, a non-profit organization by Birdman and his brother will be used to pay rents for residents in Scattered Sites Harmony Oaks, Marrero Commons, and Guste areas formerly known as Magnolia, Calliope, and Melpomene.

“The legacy of Cash Money belongs to the city of New Orleans. There’s nothing more important to us than giving back to the brothers and sisters who live on those same streets we grew up on – from musicians to service workers to everyday working families. That’s what this label was always about,” Birdman said in a statement.

 

 

“New Orleans made us and is part of who we are. We are devastated that this pandemic is hitting our community there so hard and we are committed to doing what we can to help now and in the long term,” Birdman’s brother, Slim added.

 

The money is expected to go directly to landlords and tenants included will be notified. The William brothers have previously been involved with several charity works for the people of New Orleans through their Johnny and Gladys Williams Foundation.
