Def Jam artist 2 Chainz has just signed a huge publishing deal with Reservoir Media. The publishing company will now have the rights to the 200+ songs in the “Birthday Song” rapper’s catalog. 2 Chainz was introduced to the Reservoir Media publishing team by Def Jam VP of A&R Sha Money. When asked about his deal 2 Chainz said
“The key to my success has been building a stellar team of hand-selected people with the skill and know-how to match my vision. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Reservoir’s exceptional group of professionals. “Artists depend on strong publishing representation and today, I believe I have secured that.”
The Sr. VP of Creative and Business Development for Reservoir Media Faith Newman said of 2 Chainz
“I loved that 2 Chainz was a veteran of the business, with a new major label deal, but underground at the same time. He has a unique flow, look, and persona, and you feel that charisma when you meet him in person.” “I see 2 Chainz as a career artist, he has already developed into a cultural tastemaker. He can easily expand into other ventures like acting or product endorsement. His social media presence is pretty astounding; some days he averaged more than 300 new Twitter followers an hour. He’s also a great live performer who knows how to work a crowd.”
Congrats to 2 Chainz who will be releasing his debut album Based on a T.R.U Story on August 14th.
