WU-TANG HEADS DOWNTOWN

Downtown Music Publishing has struck global publishing administration agreements for the catalog of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Wu-Tang Productions and owners Robert “RZA” Diggs and Mitchell “Divine” Diggs signed the deal that will also include select works co-written or produced by individual Wu-Tang Clan members for solo releases, affiliates and other artists. The writers represented under the deals include co-founders Ghostface Killah, GZA, Inspectah Deck, Method Man, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Raekwon, RZA and U-God.

“Downtown's system is ideal for us—they have the global reach and capacity of a ‘major’ while maintaining strong, highly personal relationships with their clients,” RZA said. “Their customized approach to clientele accompanied with their focus in areas like rights management and distribution make Downtown an ideal partner for Wu-Tang Productions."

Downtown Music Holdings CEO Justin Kalifowitz said, “Wu-Tang Clan isn’t just one of hip-hop’s most influential groups, it’s an iconic institution in every sense of the word—with a legacy that extends well beyond the realm of music. As a New Yorker, representing some of East Coast hip-hop’s most revered legends—whose stories are so ingrained in the culture of our city—is a tremendous honor.”
