Aaron Bay-Schuck, Warner’s co-chairman & CEO, is equally elated about the signing. “We first reached out to CJ after hearing ‘Whoopty,’ which we loved instantly, but more importantly, upon meeting him, his star power was obvious, as was his ambition to be an artist at the highest level,” he says. “He shared amazing, unreleased music that showed us this would be more than just a song and expressed a desire to be the next to put Staten Island on his back and bring the popular subgenre of drill music to the mainstream. His energy was infectious, and he had already surrounded himself with a top-notch management team in James Cruz. For us, it was a no-brainer.”
