Irv Gotti Inks With Warner/Chappell Music

Producer/songwriter Irv Gotti has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music. The Warner Music publisher will administer all of Gotti’s future material, including the music score for Tales — the BET drama series that entwines hip-hop songs with a narrative.

Founder of Murder Inc. records, Gotti has collaborated with Jay-Z, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Foxy Brown, Eve, Vanessa Carlton, Fat Joe, and Jennifer Lopez. He is also responsible for signing DMX to Def Jam.

“Irv is an amazing music person and entrepreneur, and the force behind a string of game-changing records,” said Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell. “Irv’s impressive talents have often gone unrecognized, but there is no doubt that he has some of the best ears in the business. Irv and I been great friends for years, so it’s a thrill to welcome him into the Warner/Chappell family.”
