In an exclusive radio interview with Q93.3FM on July 7, DJ Wild Wayne reminded Lil Wayne of the days when he would make a daily call to the landline at Cash Money Records' offices, hoping to catch the attention of label co-founder Bryan "Baby" Williams by rhyming into the answering machine.

"522-3660, I called it every day," the rapper told the DJ.

Sometime around 1990, Williams had sat down at the kitchen table with his brother Ronald "Slim" Williams and sketched a pen-and-ink dollar sign logo for a record label that had yet to exist.
