Last month rapper CJ signed a record deal with Warner Records. Now he’s signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell. It’s a whole big Warner Music Group deal signing party! If you’re at a Warner company and need some deals signing, CJ will be there to do it any time you want.

“CJ is a young talent who burst onto the New York rap scene and is already gaining worldwide attention”, says Warner Chappell President of US A&R Ryan Press. “From the minute I first heard his music, I was hooked. We’re looking forward to the journey ahead and working closely with him, his manager James Cruz, along with … our Warner Records fam”.

CJ adds: “The moment I’ve been waiting for as a songwriter and an artist is finally here. Ryan Press and the Warner Chappell team are all about building a writer’s career and that’s exactly what I’m looking to do. I’m ready to take this momentum and see what we can accomplish together”.

Why put all your eggs in one basket and sign both deals with Warner though? Well, here’s CJ’s manager – the previously mentioned James Cruz – to explain: “We chose Warner Chappell and Warner Records because we wanted to have our label and publishing partners under the same roof as well as work with a team that felt more like family. I’ve been on this ride with CJ since the beginning, and I know it’s going to only get better from here with the full support of our friends at Warner”.

Well, you know what they say: why work with one division of a multinational corporation when you can cuddle two? CJ is currently working on a new EP. His new single, ‘Bop’, is out now.
