Rap mogul Bryan 'Birdman' Williams and his brother Ronald 'Slim' Williams are venturing away from music - the siblings have launched their own oiland gas company.

Bronald Oil and Gas, Llc is an independent oil and gas company

The Cash Money Records co-founders have created Bronald Oil and Gas, a combination of both of their first names, which will be rolled out across America.

The rapper, also known as Baby, and his brother have begun the process of acquiring leases for areas with "the opportunity for re-entry drilling as well as new drilling opportunities.

A statement on the pair's website reads, "Bronald Oil and Gas, Llc is an independent oil and gas company focused on the exploration, production and development of oil and gas reserves from conventional and unconventional formations.

The company is initially focused on exploration and development properties in Osage County, Oklahoma, as well as in Texas and Louisiana in the United States and in Central America".

Meanwhile, they insist one of their main concerns is "preserving the environment, promoting worker safety and maximising the potential output ofvarious oil and gas assets".

To celebrate the new venture, Birdman is sporting a new tattoo with theword 'Bronald' inked on his skin, according to BallerStatus.
