Warner Chappell Acquires Pop Smoke Discography

Published: Wednesday 17th Jun 2020 by David

Pop Smoke‘s estate has signed a co-publishing deal with  the publishing arm of Warner Music.

Full story below…

The rapper was murdered during a home invasion in February and left behind an army of supporters and a treasure chest of material which can now be exploited to generate income via posthumous releases.

This month, his estate signed a co-publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Publishing designed to help them make full use of the material the artist created before his passing and preserve his legacy.

His representatives shared…

We are very pleased and proud to entrust the protection and enhancement of Pop Smoke’s music to Ryan Press and the rest of the Warner Chappell team. Our new alliance with the company and its vast global resources will significantly support the family’s efforts to preserve Pop Smoke’s legacy and musical impact among his fans and the world.

Ryan Press, Warner Chappell’s president of A&R, U.S adding…

Pop meant so much to so many people across the world. At a young age, he became the prominent emerging voice on the New York rap scene, helping to bring it back to the forefront. Pop was deeply connected to the culture and well on his way to becoming one of the best artists of his generation. I had the honor of meeting him, and I’m personally committed to doing everything I can to support the Jackson family and Steven Victor in keeping Pop’s legacy alive. Warner Chappell is very proud to help continue to share Pop’s music with the world.

The arrangement covers all works created by the ‘Welcome to the Party’ lyricist.
