    Reservoir, a New York based publishing firm, has signed Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz to an exclusive worldwide publishing deal. Holla!

    The deal includes a 200-plus song catalog, including 2 Chainz' forthcoming album, Based on a T.R.U. Story, to be released by Def Jam Recordings on Aug. 14.

    The deal was spearheaded by seasoned industry A&R executive and Reservoir Senior Vice President of Creative and Business Development, Faith Newman.

    "I was introduced to 2 Chainz by Def Jam's Senior Vice President of A&R, Sha Money, who had just signed him," Newman, a Def Jam alum herself, remembers. "I loved that 2 Chainz was a veteran of the business, with a new major label deal, but underground at the same time. He has a unique flow, look, and persona, and you feel that charisma when you meet him in person." The combination of 2 Chainz' own star quality and the vote of confidence from Sha Money sealed the deal for Newman. We are feelin' 2 Chainz so we understand why Newman was, as they say, feelin' him!

    Says 2 Chainz, "The key to my success has been building a stellar team of hand-selected people with the skill and know-how to match my vision. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Reservoir's exceptional group of professionals. Artists depend on strong publishing representation and today, I believe I have secured that."

    Congrats to 2 Chainz and Reservoir!

    Are you going to nab 2 Chainz album next week? Do it up, people.
