Not only does this offering boast a mix of newer and more mature works from hip-hop artists Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Fetty Wap, but as the winning bidder you'll also earn from a variety of income sources including public performance, mechanical, and sync.

The top-earning track for this collection is “Make You Feel Good” from the Grammy-nominated artist Fetty Wap. Released in 2016, this newer track drives nearly a third of this catalog’s last 12 months earnings. In fact, “Make You Feel Good” is on the rise, showing over 50% growth within the last year.

Making up nearly 13% of this catalog's income in the last 12 months is the track “KK” from Wiz Khalifa's fifth studio album Blacc Hollywood. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release in 2014. Blacc Hollywood received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album that same year and is certified Gold. Currently, this track is trending positively with a 19% growth rate over the preceding year.

Nearly 12% of these collections last 12 months earnings derive from the new release “Till You’re Loved” from Mr. Probz. The catalog also includes “Celebrate” and “Cowboy” from Wiz Khalifa's 2016 album Khalifa, “Representin’” from Ludacris as well as music from artists such as Chris Brown, Waka Flocka Flame and A$AP Ferg.

Key Drivers

The winner of this auction can receive income from three different royalty streams:

  • Mechanical: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is reproduced, either sold ( CD,vinyl, or digital downloads) or streamed (either on-demand like Spotify or on Internet Radio like Pandora).

  • Performance: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is performed publicly. Music played over the radio, in a restaurant or bar, or over a service like Spotify or Pandora is considered a public performance.

  • Synchronization: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers for the licensing of a song in music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.

This catalog’s income mix is driven predominantly by mechanicals, making up nearly 70% of this catalog’s historic earnings. While performance earnings drive nearly a quarter, sync earnings contribute to just over 10% of historic earnings as well.

Mechanical Rates. The US Copyright Royalty Board recently raised the rates digital music services must pay for mechanical royalties by nearly 44% over the next 5 years. Historically, this catalog has earned 69% of its royalties from mechanical royalties. As the winner of this auction, you will benefit from the mechanical rate increases as you collect mechanical royalties.
