Up for auction is a streaming-driven catalog powered by huge names in hip-hop including Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, Meek Mill and more.

Nominated for the Best New Hip-Hop Artist of 2018, artist Playboi Carti’s Platinum single “Shoota” featuring Lil Uzi Vert drives 38% of earnings in the last 12 months.

This collection is further boosted by a roster of over 30 works from artist Lil Uzi Vert – highlighted by the 2X Platinum single, “Money Longer” and Platinum singles “Do What I Want” and “Dark Queen.” Collectively these tracks make up a quarter of recent earnings. An interesting feature of this catalog is 50% of its earnings in the last year are spread across 12 works. This offers built-in diversification.

Rounding out the earnings in this catalog are five tracks from Lil Uzi Vert’s 2X Platinum album Luv Is Rage 2, three tracks on the certified Gold album The Perfect LUV Tape, and three on the Platinum album Lil Uzi Vert vs The World. Additionally, Meek Mill’s “Almost Slipped” from his 2018 release Championships contributes to 6% of royalties collected in the last 12 months. The works in this collection range in age from one to nearly four years.

Key Drivers

Hip-Hop/Streaming. This catalog is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. According to BuzzAngle's 2018 Year-End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Hip-hop/rap tracks accounted for more than a quarter of all on-demand plays on music streaming services in the US in 2018. Streaming accounts for 81% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months and these earnings are up over 30% in the same period.

Gen-Z/Streaming. According to a recent study, Fluent uncovered millennials and Gen-Z are the primary users of, subscription services like Apple Music and Spotify. As the majority of Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti’s following falls within this age range, demand on streaming sources follows suit.

International. The remaining majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 19% of earnings in the last year. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, regardless of when they were earned. As this collection earns from countries outside the United States, it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.
