Up for bid here are multiple royalty streams from the 2X Platinum “Save Dat Money” from rapper/comedian Lil Dicky featuring Fetty Wap and Rich Homie QuanAs the winning bidder, you will earn three types of royalties for the track: mechanical, public performance, and sync.


The highest-earning source are mechanical royalties with 62% of returns in the last year. Public performance follows with the remaining 35%. 

You’ll notice a spike in earnings in H2-2020. This is the result of catch-up mechanical payments from YouTube. It’s unlikely other payments like this will occur again, but if it does the winning investor will be entitled to them.


This single-song auction features Lil Dicky’s “Save Dat Money,” released in June 2015 as the third single from his debut studio album. "Save Dat Money" features guest appearances from hot rappers Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan. It peaked at No.  71 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified double-Platinum by the RIAA in 2019.  

The Professional Rapper album was wildly successful, debuting at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 1 consecutively on three other charts: Comedy Albums, Rap Albums, and Independent Albums.

To date, the track “Save Dat Money” has an impressive 221+ million spins on Spotify, while the video has nearly 167 million views.

Key Drivers

Dollar Age. This catalog has a Dollar Age of 5.97 years. This means the song has earned for nearly six years. A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity. A catalog containing mature works is something worth noting as an investor, as it can help sustain a catalog's earnings moving forward.

Income Mix. The winner of this auction can receive income in various ways:

  • Mechanical: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers when music is sold (think CD or vinyl) but also when music is streamed (streaming mechanicals) “on-demand” (like Spotify).
  • Performance: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is performed publicly. Music played over the radio, in a restaurant or bar, or over a service like Spotify or Pandora is considered a public performance.
  • Synchronization: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers for the licensing of a song in music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.


The investment term is “at least 29 years” because U.S. copyright law gives artists and songwriters the right to terminate a copyright assignment after 35 years. The seller of this catalog acquired the copyrights via assignment in 2015, so the songwriter may have the right to terminate the assignment beginning in 2050 (35 years from 2015). Click here to learn more about copyright termination.
