Paris Hilton signs deal with hip-hop label

Washington, May 24 (ANI): Paris Hilton has become the newest member of one of hip-hop's hottest labels - Cash Money Records.

The heiress and reality star has signed with the record label, which is home to hitmakers Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake, CNN reported.

Cash Money's co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams tweeted a welcome to Hilton on Wednesday, causing Hilton's name to cruise at the top of the social media's trending topics for hours.

Hilton replied saying, "Thanks BO$$! Happy to be apart of the family."

The hotel heiress brought up her second album, which she's previously said would involve Afrojack as an executive producer, and revealed that the record will be released by Cash Money and will feature hip-hop acts.

Many were skeptical of Hilton's confirmed new deal with the label, but Williams told the Los Angeles Times that the decision to sign the 32-year-old was pretty simple.

"She's always supported us, and we've supported her," he said.

Hilton has been working on her follow-up to 2006's 'Paris' for more than a year, and hopes to release it this summer. (ANI)
