Bid now for your chance to earn from a collection of hip-hop artists including Tyga, Grammy-winner Lil Wayne and more. In the last 12 months, this catalog generated nearly $8k in earnings.

Hip-hop artist Tyga’s second-highest charting single “Faded” contributes to just over 80% of this catalog’s last 12 months earnings. Featuring a collaboration with Lil Wayne, the 2x platinum single peaked at No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following its release, Complex named it one of the Best Songs of 2012.

Notably one of the older works in this listing, “Bitch Betta Have My Money" is also the second-highest earning track. The 2011 release features artists Tyga, YG and Kurupt and in the last 12 months alone, it contributed to nearly 10% of this catalog’s earnings.

This listing includes a variety of additional hip-hop artists with collective earnings dating back nearly eight years. Notable works include the 2015 release “Check, Run It” from Grammy-winner T.I., the 2016 release “Roped Off” from The Game, and the 2012 release “Check That B**ch” from E-40 and Too Short. In the last 12 months, all three of these works have shown growth, drawing nearly 8% of earnings. Additional noteworthy artists featured in this catalog include Young Money, Meek Mill, Chris Brown and many more.

Key Drivers

Hip-Hop and Streaming. This catalog is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. Hip-hop overtook rock in 2017 as the most popular genre of music in the U.S. and now accounts for 31% of all music consumption. The driver for the increase is streaming. According to Rolling Stone, total consumption of Urban songs (Hip-Hop/Rap and R&B) by both streams and sales grew by 18% in the first half of 2018. Streaming accounts for 38% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months.

International. A majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 19% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, regardless of when they were earned.
