It’s the author of this gem:

New York, NY — Google Cash Money, one of hip-hop’s most successful and enduring street-imprints, and the first four words blazing across Wikipedia identifying the dirty south’s first globally acclaimed brand might be the most revealing: An American Record Label.

Um, no. I mean, yeah, but…no. And people wonder why the record industry is in trouble?

Note: This snark is not in any way intended to disparage the subject of said press release, Cash Money Records: 10 Years of Bling Vol. 1, which includes several very decent hits which have sent me on a pleasant nostalgia trip to those far-off days when the Best(?)-Rapper-Alive-to-be was, in fact, lil’.
