Los Angeles, CA – Breakout Detroit-focused narrator and 2021 HipHopDX Rising Star 42 Dugg just released his new album Free Dem Boyz and is investing his future in Warner Chappell Music, joining the likes of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, Lizzo and even the late Pop Smoke.
The “We Paid” rapper was the focal point of the announcement on Wednesday (May 26) when he signed a co-publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Music, WMG’s global publishing arm.
Backed by Yo Gotti’s CMG and Lil Baby’s 4PF record labels, 42 Dugg is entrusting Warner Chappell Music to put the other half of his publishing in places where it will thrive the most.
Ryan Press, Warner Chappell Music President of A&R in the United States, spoke to Yo Gotti’s tutelage and affirmed 42 Dugg’s star power.
“Ryan and the whole Warner Chappell crew are connected to some of the best artists and producers in the game and I have a lot of respect for their work,” 42 Dugg said of the move. “I look forward to collaborating with their team and taking my music to the next level.”
Yo Gotti added, “It’s great to be locked in with Ryan and the Warner Chappell team and partner on this new endeavor together. Dugg is a superstar and we’re all committed to putting him in the right position to succeed and elevate his music career.”
Free Dem Boyz is a star-studded affair, featuring Future, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, EST Gee, Rowdy Rebel, Fivio Foreign and 4PF’s Rylo Rodriguez.
