Top hip-hop agents Caroline Yim and Zach Iser have left ICM Partners to join CAA, a source close to the situation confirms to Variety.

The source said that the competition for the bicoastal pair — who work together closely and rep Migos, Future, SZA, Kehlani, SchoolBoy Q, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty, Anderson.Paak, Chris Brown, Daniel Caesar and others — was fierce, with virtually every major agency in on the action. Ultimately, despite a strong proposal to keep the pair at ICM, they elected to join Rob Light at CAA. Yim is based in Los Angeles; Iser in New York.

“Caroline and Zach have had incredible success in identifying and developing some of the greatest voices in the urban music scene,” said Darryl Eaton, Co-Head of Contemporary Music at CAA. “They are a terrific complement to our team and we are thrilled to welcome them.”

That company is already a hip-hop powerhouse, with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Logic, A Tribe Called Quest, Fetty Wap, and such emerging acts as Kyle, Smino, Jorja Smith, and GoldLink, among others.
