Kendrick Lamar signed a global admin deal with Universal Music Publishing Group, which was announced this week.
“Kendrick Lamar is not only one of the greatest lyricists that has ever lived, but he has done as much or more than any artist to promote much needed change in our society through music,” said Jody Gerson, UMPG Chairman and CEO. “I and my colleagues at UMPG are deeply honored to be afforded the opportunity to join Kendrick, Anthony ‘Top Dawg’ Tiffith and the TDE family to help forward his unique and important vision.”
This comes after he inked a publishing deal with BMI last year. The status of that deal is unclear.
