The Bronx-born rapper-producer began his music journey in childhood and has made significant strides in the industry. Cobain recently released a video remix of “Fisherrr” featuring Ice Spice and Bay Swag, amassing over 26 million streams. His collaborations include J. Cole on “Grippy,” Charlie Wilson on Don Toliver’s “ATTITUDE,” and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s “Body.”

“I’m so excited for this chapter in my career – shoutout to Warner Chappell Music and my team for making this happen,” Cobain said. “This is a huge moment, and I’m looking forward to building the ‘Slizzy’ empire with WCM by my side.”


Wallace Joseph, Senior Vice President, A&R, WCM, and Rich Christina, Senior Vice President, A&R and Venture Partners, WCM, shared: “Cash Cobain is a pioneering culture-mover as an artist and producer with his ‘Slizzy’ movement. He’s reshaped the sound of New York and beyond. His production talent is unique and undeniable. Combined with his artistry, he’s unstoppable.”

Ryan Press, President, North America, WCM added: “Cash is one of the best up-and-comers out there. As the original creator behind this entirely new drill style, he’s introduced a sound using some of music’s most classic hits, and his delivery is spot on every single time.”

Cobain’s pioneering “sexy drill” wave emerged in 2020, propelling the New York drill sound forward with hits like B-Lovee’s “My Everything.” In 2023, he dropped his debut album, Pretty Girls Love Slizzy, and continues to shape rap’s future with charting productions for Drake and PinkPantheress. His upcoming EP, Play Cash Cobain, is eagerly anticipated.
