‘Risk-On’ – Add Eminem songs to your stock portfolio and earn phat stacks and dividends!
An entrepreneurial new company is making Em’s royalties available to speculators.
A slice of Eminem’s catalog will soon be publicly tradable for investors and speculators. Royalty Flow, an ambitious company that likes to take risk in the music biz, has announced it has taken ownership of the master sound recording royalties for Em’s catalog from 1999-2013: an era that includes The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, and The Eminem Show. Royalty Flow purchased 25 percent of the outstanding royalty streams from Jeff and Mark Bass (the bros and producers who first signed Em), as well as their manager Joel Martin.
With enough dosh in its coffers (Royalty Flow seeks to raise up to $25 million), the firm intends to list new shares on an exchange or the OTC market, where anyone can buy, sell, and trade Eminem equities/derivatives, thereby taking a financial bet on Eminem’s music (the best-selling hip-hop artist ever!).
Eminem’s latest studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, was released in 2013. This year, he served as a producer on the battle rap movie ‘Bodied.’ In any event, this is a nifty way to diversity your portfolio and make some quick cash, provided the market and economy stays on an upward trajectory (thank you, Trumpanomics!). However, this kind of offering is laden with risk, so make sure you live by the caveat emptor credo. Word up!
