This is a great opportunity to own an ASCAP writers share catalog that has actually been trending up over the last 3 years. This is a catalog of mainly two songs from the 2002 Busta Rhymes album “It Ain’t Safe No More..” The two singles were “I Know What You Want”, which was a duet with Maria Carey, and “Make it Clap” featuring Sean Paul and Spliff Star himself.


These are legacy songs from 2002 and have definitely reached flatline, and have actually seen growth over the last four years in Domestic and International income. For international, don’t pay too much attention to the up and down because not every country reports quarterly, so that is why you have so many highs and lows.


These songs still get consistent radio play on Urban and Pop radio and online has seen growth. The biggest income generator and growth has been international. Overall the income looks solid and there are no red flags, overall this has a great outlook.


“I Know What You Want” represents 76% of the income and has seen the range go from $550 to $800 over the last three years. “Make It Clap” comes in second at 20% with the rest at 4% of income. “Make It Clap” has been a bit more volatile and has not shown overall growth as much.


Conclusion:

This is a great investment catalog. These two songs are well into flatline and Busta Rhymes and Maria Carey are great artists that will have a very long life span. I would look at this income as staying very steady and if there is any more growth, well that is just icing on the cake.
