Bid to collect the next 10 years of songwriter royalties for a catalog of hip-hop music highlighted by big names like Jeezy, Rick Ross, and The Game. The catalog also generates income from music used in VH1 reality shows. In the last 12 months, this catalog earned $4,870.
Jeezy's “Get Right” brings in the majority of the income, making up 21% of the earnings in the last 12 months and 41% historically. Released in 2012, the song’s video has 19 million YouTube views and over 3 million Spotify spins.
Songs by Rick Ross contribute a large portion of the earnings. The catalog’s second highest earner is “Rich is Gangsta” from the 2015 album Mastermind. Also included is a new release from 2017 “Idols Become Rivals.” This song just started collecting royalties in the most recent quarter, so any additional public performance royalties generated in the next 10 years will go to you! And this song already has an impressive 21 million YouTube views and 8+ million Spotify spins.
Also included is “Ali Bomaye” by The Game featuring Rick Ross, released in 2012. The song has since peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart and appears in the soundtrack Grand Theft Auto V. “Ali Bomaye” remains popular today, and royalties increased 2% in the last 12 months over the previous.
TV Placements. Royalties from television make up the second largest source of income, bringing in 30% of the earnings in the last 12 months. This is thanks to music used by VH1 in reality shows like Love and Hip-Hop. According to the seller, this music stays in VH1s rotation...so as more shows get added there are potential for additional placements of those same songs. If there are additional placements...you earn additional income.
Tours. Jeezy and Rick Ross are actively touring throughout the spring and summer this year. Tours give artists the chance to solidify their current fan base and expand their reach to new listeners

About the Royalty Distributor
BMI represents more than 10.5 million musical works created and owned by more than 700,000 songwriters, composers, and music publishers. BMI supports businesses and organizations that play music publicly by offering blanket music licenses that permit them to play more than 10.5 million musical works.
Public performance royalties are payments made by radio stations, hotels, restaurants, night clubs, etc. to the composition copyright holder(s) for each public performance of the copyrighted work. In the U.S., public performance royalties are typically paid to performing rights organizations (e.g., ASCAP, BMI) who then distribute the royalties to the copyright holder(s).
Mechanical royalties are royalties deriving from per-unit payments made by recording companies or digital download providers to the composition copyright holder(s) for every purchase of a sound recording that reproduces the copyrighted composition.
Non-interactive digital performance royalties are payments made by non-interactive music services (i.e. those that mimic the experience of a radio broadcast) of a statutorily-set amount (on either a per-play or annual basis—depending on the type of service) to SoundExchange for the benefit of the sound recording copyright holder and the performing artists for the right to perform the copyrighted sound recording via non-interactive, digital means.
non-interactive digital performance royalties
The royalties owed to the creator(s) of a musical composition which are paid in return for the right to reproduce, distribute, or perform the copyrighted work.
A musical composition is one of the two copyrightable parts of a recorded song. It consists of the song's music, including any accompanying words, (i.e. the portion of a song that is capable of being fully expressed as sheet music) and is separate from any particular recording of the song or its performance by any particular artist.
A sound recording is one of the two copyrightable portions of a recorded song. It results from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds in a tangible (at least momentarily permanent) medium.
The portion of royalties owed to the owner of a sound recording. The owner may the performing artist, the producer, or another party (such as a record label) who contractually acquired the ownership of the copyrighted work (e.g., through a recording agreement), owns it by virtue of an employer-employee relationship with the creator(s) of the work, or specially commissioned the work.
rights owner's share
The portion of royalties owed to the performers of a sound recording in return for the right to perform the copyrighted work via non-interactive, digital services (e.g., Pandora, Spotify).
The portion of royalties owed to the music publisher which are paid in return for the right to reproduce, distribute, or perform a copyrighted musical composition, arising from a contractual obligation (i.e. a publishing agreement) or employer-employee relationship with the creator of composition (i.e. the songwriter(s)).
If an asset requires splitting up a catalog by works or percentages, Royalty Exchange may need to provide royalty accounting services to the buyer, seller, or both. This is because the royalty distributor may not be able to split royalties as intended by the asset transfer. Royalty Exchange's involvement helps to ensure accurate royalty payments. It also helps assure buyers and sellers that they are not missing out on potential earnings.
The accounting process often involves manual spreadsheet work and coordinating with royalty distributors. Royalty Exchange's goal is for the accounting service to be temporary. We plan to work with distributors to find solutions that will allow us to revert accounting and payment obligations back to the distributor, removing ourselves from the process. In the meantime, we've instituted the 5% fee to help offset costs in the manual accounting.
Please see the sample accounting agreement document for reference.
