German rapper Capital Bra has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell. A pioneer of the Deutschrap sound, he is Germany’s most streamed artist and scored no less than ten number one singles in his home country last year.

“Deutschrap has gone from the underground to the mainstream in the last couple of years and I’m proud to have played my part in making that happen”, the rapper says. “I love working with … the team at Chappell. They’re a great sounding board as I pull together new songs and have supported me in building my career”.

Senior Creative Director at the Warner publisher’s German division, Natascha Augustin, adds: “Capital Bra is an amazing talent that has tapped into the zeitgeist with his songwriting ability and performance. He’s not afraid to tackle hard issues, on or off the stage, and has a real connection with his fans. He’s also a gifted writer who is building an incredible songbook that will stand the test of time”.

Whether the signing of a worldwide deal marks moves to attempt to find an audience for Deutschrap outside Germany remains to be seen. Capital Bra is set to release his new album, ‘CB7’, later this year, as well as another under the name Joker Bra.
