Ultra International Music Publishing has announced a co-publishing deal with acclaimed songwriter/producer Zaytoven in addition to acquiring his existing catalog.
Ultra International Music Publishing (UIMP), a leading independent publisher of hip-hop, jazz, EDM, pop, and reggae, announces a new agreement with Atlanta-based songwriter and producer Zaytoven. UIMP has agreed to a co-publishing agreement with Zaytoven to develop new work as he continues his collaborations with the company in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and London.
This new deal also sees UIMP fully acquire Zaytoven’s remaining co-published interest in his existing catalog, alongside the writer’s share. This consists of 560 songs written between 2005 and 2022, including Migos’ “Versace,” Travis Scott’s “3500,” DJ Esco featuring Future & Lil Uzi Vert’s “Too Much Sauce,” Future featuring Drake’s “Used To This,” 21 Savage’s “Famous,” Lil Wayne’s “Problems,” and many more.
Zaytoven has released collaborative projects with artists including Gucci Mane, Usher, Future, Young Dolph, Migos, Lecrae, Lil Yachty, Chief Keef, Young Scooter, B.o.B, Boosie Badazz, Waka Flocka Flame, Jack Harlow, and Dietrick Haddon. Working with Gucci Mane, Zaytoven became 1017 Brick Squad’s in-house producer and went on to win a Grammy in 2011 for his contribution to Usher’s album, Raymond v. Raymond, as co-producer and writer for the single “Papers.”
“Ultra Music Publishing has been the only place for me,” says Zaytoven. “Our relationship has grown and flourished since the beginning of my career. 2023 marks a new partnership, and I’m excited to take over the world!”
Patrick Moxey, Founder and CEO of UIMP, adds: “Zaytoven is an extraordinary talent. He is the Father of trap music and has been the driving force of much of how we define that genre. Gucci Mane, Migos, Future — he’s been right there with these artists from the beginning in 2004 right up to the present day. I’m proud to announce that after working with him since 2007, we continue to be focused on future success.”
