They found him $600K. That the label had stole from him. The Record Label let him out of his contract after he threatened to teach other artist financial literacy.
Music Industry Challenge
The global music licensing ecosystem is a complex system of businesses, trade organizations, governments and music consumers transacting in real-time enabling trillions of uses of music generating billions of dollars in revenue for millions of rights-holders and income participants around the world.
With this level of complexity, inefficiencies are widespread. Parties transacting domestically and abroad look to existing laws, music industry customs, direct negotiations and available resources to properly identify and account to an innumerable, and often changing, number of rights-holders and income participants.
As a result, many of these entitlements slip through the cracks every day and become unclaimed, unattributed, unmatched, and undistributed for many reasons, including but not limited to: a music licensee's inability to identify rights-holders, income participants being omitted from music registrations, incorrect metadata used to identify and link music to rights, out-dated or missing income participant contact information on file with royalty collection societies, or simply a result of out-of-touch copyright laws.
