2 Chainz Lands Worldwide Publishing Deal With Reservoir Media

(AllHipHop News) Rapper 2 Chainz has landed a major publishing deal with Reservoir Media, as he prepares to release his major label debut album Based on a T.R.U. Story.

The new publishing deal between 2 Chainz and Reservoir Media will give the publishing company the rights to the rapper’s 200-plus song catalog, including his major-label debut.

“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,” 2 Chainz told AllHipHop.com in a statement today (August 8).

“I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Reservoir’s exceptional group of professionals,” the rapper added. “Artists depend on strong publishing representation and today, I believe I have secured that.”

The deal between 2 Chainz and Reservoir Media was brokered by Reservoir’s Senior Vice President of Creative and Business Development, Faith Newman.

Faith Newman was introduced to 2 Chainz via Sha Money XL, Def Jam’s Senior Vice President of A & R.

“I loved that 2 Chainz was a veteran of the business, with a new major label deal, but underground at the same time,” Newman said in reference to the rapper’s previous career as Tity Boi in the group Playaz Circle.

“He has a unique flow, look, and persona, and you feel that charisma when you meet him in person,” Newman added.

The deal comes as 2 Chainz holds the Top 2 slots on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

The rapper is featured on Kanye West’s platinum-selling single “Mercy,” alongside Big Sean and Pusha T, which was been #1 for the past five weeks.

Meanwhile, 2 Chainz’ track “No Lie” featuring Drake is #2.

Based on a T.R.U. Story is set to be released on August 14th via Def Jam Recordings.
