HITS Daily Double


Warner Chappell Music has signed a global publishing deal with Bronx-bred rapper-producer Cash Cobain, who released the breakout hit “Fisherrr” in February.

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

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

Added WCM President, North America Ryan Press, “Cash is one of the best up-and-comers out there. As the creator of 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.
