Young Thug has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Kobalt, covering his current and future catalogue.

Kobalt’s VP Creative, Jill Tschogl, says: “Young Thug’s track record for impacting the modern sound of hip hop, trap and popular music is undeniable. He is not only one of the most Influential songwriters and artists in rap today, but a cultural icon. It’s an honour to work closely with Young Thug and his team. We look forward to supporting his incredible talent and artistry”.

The new deal comes three years after the rapper signed to Reservoir. It also comes in a year when he’s had two number one albums in the US – ‘Slime Language 2’, which came out in April, and ‘Punk’, which was released last month – putting him in a pretty good negotiating position.

For recordings, he releases on his own Young Stoner Life label, in partnership with 300 Entertainment.
