This catalog includes tracks from rising hip-hop star Reo Cragun, as well as a strong single from rapper Gunplay.


  • 30-Year Investment Term
  • Streaming-driven


Streaming accounts for 64% of the catalog’s last 12 months’ earnings and 62% of all-time earnings, indicating streaming as a consistent source.

Earnings are rooted in songs across the catalog—no one song contributes more than 29% of the last 12 months’ royalties. 


While “On My Way” by Reo Cragun is the top-earner over the last 12 months, this catalog also generated considerable earnings from “Inconsiderate” (Reo Cragun) and “Bible on the Dash” (Gunplay) at 16% and 11% of the last 12 months, respectively. 

Tracks like “Prom Night,” another Reo Cragun track, showed some year-over-year growth and the remainder of the catalog continues to contribute more significantly to earnings as time goes on.

Key Drivers

Hip-Hop & Streaming. Hip-Hop & Streaming. Hip-Hop/Streaming. This catalog is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. According to BuzzAngle's 2019 Year End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Six out of the top 10 streamed songs were hip-hop/rap and 52 out of the top 100 most streamed songs were hip-hop/rap.
