Collect royalties from songs released over the last two years by hot hip-hop artists TK-N-Cash and Kevin Gates. This catalog has generated four consecutive quarters of royalty payments so far. The songs have collected $11,621 in that time, with the majority of earnings coming from radio performance royalties.

The hit song “3 Times In A Row” makes up 92% of earnings, performed by the hip-hop duo TK-N-Cash. Released in 2015, the song earned notable royalties during the first quarter of 2016 as a result of its strong domestic radio performance. While radio royalties tend to level off after the initial spike following release, digital earnings can provide a nice offset over time. “3 Times In A Row” has a solid Spotify presence with over 17 million listens, as well as growing YouTube views. Since this is auction is for public performance royalties, both of these sources contribute to your royalty stream.

The catalog also includes Kevin Gates' “Great Example” from his 15th mixtape Murder For Hire 2. The album debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 when released in May of 2016. Kevin Gates shot onto the mainstream music scene last year with the release of his Platinum-certified studio album Islah, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Gates' new found popularity will continue to grow with his summer 2017 tour. Tours give artists a chance to expose new listeners to their music and increase their fan base.
