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.

Key Drivers

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

What is being sold?

10 years of royalty payments derived from 100% of the seller's interest in the songwriter's share of domestic (U.S) public performance royalties attributable to the seller's catalog of musical works. See the “Financials" tab for a full tracklist.

How does this asset make money?

Every time “Get Right” or any song in this catalog, is played on the radio, SiriusXM, YouTube, or any other type of public performance, you earn royalties. BMI makes payments quarterly and the first distribution you will receive is June 2018.
