    Shouldn’t they have 100 percent of their masters though? Nice gesture though


    Edit: I misread he is giving back the “50 percent that he owns” so it sounds like he is giving back all that he owned

    Def Jam owns the other half of the masters. Publishing is a different thing.

    Props if he follows through. He says and does a lot of dumb shyt but this would be a big move

    Publishing and Masters are two different things


    It was common at one point for artists to own their publishing but 360 deals gave labels a slice of all of the artist’s pie.


    It’s NEVER been common for artists to own their Masters. The Master recordings means that whoever owns them owns the rights to the
    Music itself. So the label decides who can purchase or license the songs. Publishing means that when that music IS purchased or licensed, the writer/composer gets royalties.

    Thank you for pointing that out. A discrepancy on my part, I had actually misread the original post and inserted publishing in place of masters, so I’m going to edit that original post as to not cause confusion

    can't give him props for shyt he shoulda been done. He's doing this AFTER he called out the label. AFTER people called him out for this hypocrisy. AFTER he's already reaped the benefits of owning the masters of records that have already peaked as far as financial viability. He gonna give that money back? Until then I aint gonna give props for that. But it is a good first step...a nice good faith gesture if he really wants to get the ball rolling for musicians. And I'm sure his artists appreciate it. Its better than most get. What next tho Ye?
