Houston Investment Bank Skeptical Of Cash Money Records Founders' Foray Into Energy Business

As noted earlier this week, Cash Money Records founders (and brothers) Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams are trying their hands at the energy business, with the launch of Bronald Oil & Gas LLC (Bronald = Br(yan) + (R)onald). This has prompted some haters to wonder aloud whether or not this is some sort of sign.

[The Wiliams'] foray into energy with Bronald prompted Houston investment bank Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. to quip that this may be a sign of the end of an oil-market rally.
"Doctors and dentists investing in oil wells was sign of top in 1980s," the bank said last week in a note to clients. "Rappers the sign this cycle?"

First off, how dare you. Second, this:, a site dedicated to "urban lifestyle," noted Bryan Williams' tattoo: "Birdman even has a tattoo-- an oil well-- in celebration of the new venture, so it looks like he's serious about it."

No further questions.
