Unless you've been living under a rock for past few months, you've no doubt heard Cash Cobain and Bay Swag's viral hit "Fisherrr."


"Got a attitude, but you bad as shit, so I ain't mad at you," raps Cobain at the start of the hypnotic-sounding track.


Released back in February, "Fisherrr" first began gaining traction after Cobain performed it on 4 Shooters Only's popular YouTube series, "From the Block" – the same series which helped propel 4batz to superstardom.



Things really took off, however, when TikTok got its hands on the song and it received an official dance called the "Reemski."


Now, the track has over 5 million streams on Spotify alone and has been named the "song of the summer" by Billboard.


But while, at least we assume, everybody knows "Fisherrr," Cobain himself remains a bit of an enigma.


Here are five things you need to know about the 26-year-old star.


Cash Cobain was born and raised in New York


More specifically, Cobain grew up in The Bronx in New York City.


In an interview with BET published in August of last year, Cobain said he was raised in a music-loving household.


"[My] family, they love music like on a different level, my whole family," he said. "So just growing up, around them and around The Bronx where hip-hop started, I wanted to make music. I wanted to create beats. So that's why I started off making beats."


He made his name as a producer


Before he began releasing his own music, Cobain made a name for himself as one of New York City's most-esteemed and unique drill producers thanks to his use of classic samples.


His big break as a producer came in 2021 when he produced B-Lovee's "My Everything," which samples Mary J. Blige’s 1997 hit "Everything."


“It just set me apart from everyone else," Cobain told NME of "My Everything."


"It really showed people who Cash Cobain was," he said. "It was the biggest song in New York at the time and it didn’t sound like the rest of the drill stuff that was going on.”


He's since produced tracks for the likes of Lil Yachty, DDG, and PinkPantheress.



His cites 50 Cent as one of his biggest inspirations


In a January 2023 interview with Passion of the Weiss, Cobain was asked if there were any artists that he listened to growing up that he wants to emulate.


He replied: "I mean, I didn’t want to emulate nobody. I love 50 Cent, Jay-Z, I loved all the artists growing up but those two were like, the main ones."


He describes his own music as "sexy drill"


Just as Cobain has a trademark production style, he also has a trademark style when it comes to his own music.


He calls it "sexy drill" – a twist on the typical New York drill sound, which is usually filled with rolling hit-hats, speaker-bursting 808s, and violent lyrics.


"We just be on our own time, our own vibe, we don't like to do what everybody else like to do," Cobain told TMZ of his sound. "We like to have fun, go out, get lit, turnt, be with the girls. That's what we move for."


He added: "We want everyone to feel good."



He has a song with Frank Ocean on the way


In April, Cobain sat down for an interview with Billboard after the publication named him its "Rookie of the Month."


During the interview, the New Yorker revealed that he "should" have a collaboration with Frank Ocean dropping in the near future.


"He really fucks with my music," Cobain said of the former Odd Future singer.


Cobain also told Billboard that he was new music on the way with Travis Scott, Don Toliver and Lil Yachty.
