This listing features publishing earnings from the track “Stop Cappin” performed by up-and-coming rapper Blueface.

The winning bidder will collect publishing royalties including mechanical, public performance, and sync for the lifetime of the copyright from the included songs. 


Earnings are fairly evenly split between public performance and mechanical royalties at 52% and 45%, respectively. 

You’ll notice a spike in earnings in H1-2020. This is the result of catch-up YouTube payments for “Stop Cappin'' from prior performance periods. Songtrust began administering the royalties for this catalog in late 2019, however, prior to that, there were uncollected YouTube royalties due to the songwriter. These royalties were paid to the songwriter once Songtrust began administration. It’s unlikely other payments like this will occur again, but if it does the winning investor will be entitled to them. 


Blueface’s “Stop Cappin” is this catalog’s foundation — with 95% of last year’s earnings. 

The 2019 track was released on Blueface’s Dirt Bag EP, which peaked at No 48 on the Billboard 200. There’s also a version featuring The Game. To date, “Stop Cappin” has 22+ million streams on Spotify, while the video has over 30 million views on YouTube. 

Also included in this collection are: “Jesus by RJmrLA, Steelz, and Rucci and “Top Down” by RJMrLA and Royce The Choice, along with others.
