WCM CASHES IN

Warner Chappell Music (WCM) has signed a global publishing deal with Bronx-bred rapper/producer Cash Cobain, who released his breakout hit, “Fisherrr,” earlier this year.

The deal follows Cobain’s recent link-up with Ice Spice for the “Fisherrr” remix f/Bay Swag, which has amassed more than 26m streams. Other collabs include J. Cole on “Grippy,” an appearance on Don Toliver's “ATTITUDE” single and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s “Body.” The anointed “sexy drill pioneer” also produced Lancey Foux’s "Daylight" f/Teezo Touchdown.

“Cash Cobain is a pioneering culture-mover as an artist and producer with his 'Slizzy' movement,” WCM SVP, A&R Wallace Joseph and WCM SVP, A&R and Venture Partners Rich Christina said in a joint statement. “He’s reshaped the sound of New York and beyond. His production talent is unique and undeniable. Combined with his artistry, he's unstoppable.”

WCM President, North America Ryan Press added, “Cash is one of the best up-and-comers out there. As the original creator behind this entirely new drill style, he’s introduced a sound using some of music’s most classic hits, and his delivery is spot on every single time.”

Cobain’s next EP, Play Cash Cobain, is expected to arrive in the coming months.
