This will be Future, Fetty Wap and many other men pretty soon. Having all of these kids with so many women is no way to win. That $23 mil is most likely mostly already gone.

On a positive note, he can always write more hits.

First Oprah, now The-Dream. Black celebrities having fire sales on valuable commodities they created from blood, sweat and tears. Damn shame!

Those 3 songs by themselves were bonafide world wide smash hits. He should’ve gotten way more than $23 million for 300+ songs, hell he should’ve gotten more than 23 million for those three songs alone. He got played and must be desperate to sell off most of his catalog in the first place.

Either The Dream needs serious quick cash flow to pay some bills or those songs weren't profitable in the long run (there was always too many people that he had to share song writing credit with for just one song). Smoke & mirrors consume the music industry. This along with the news of Tidal falsifying streaming numbers only adds more fuel to the already out of control music industry fire that the money and stats reported that these celebrities have is fake news AKA PR noise to fool the gullible masses. This year like no other is humbling/exposing a lot of celebrities' secrets and foolishness. I can only imagine who got next....

To have an entity, specifically a caucasoid entity, gain ownership of 75% of a Black Creation that will undoubtedly make money into perpetuity is a travesty mo matter what the actual cost of the catalog.

I wonder if he can still fit them little ass jackets he use to wear, or did he give them to his son.

4:00 according to that picture he had to do something else with those little ass jackets.

Sold 75% to only get 23 million, it sounds low considering his work ethic. But at least he has the money. Humility will go a long way if he spends/invests it wisely. That's way more than what we got and if I were him I would swallow my pride and take the money and invest in something that will secure me.

Maybe he will take care of Christina and their baby together now? Or be in his daughter's life????

when calculating celebrities money here is the formula:
1 million
-taxes
half a million
- 20% to manager
- 5 to 15% to publicist
add in greedy family + make up artist, stylist, hair, etc.
housing, food, trainer, clothing (well, they do get a lot of free clothes)
and a whooooooooole lot of other unseen expenses and truly for every 1 million they make, they probably spend 3 trying to floss, etc....dumbasses!

I would have held on to them but I guess he needed the cash now instead holding it for future returns.

Umbrella, Single Ladies & Baby, Baby alone has more value than that immediate cash but he still gets $25% residuals...Time to downsize & invest wisely

He can still make money. Stop messing around with these women and get to work.

Only 23 mil?? Wow....that's NOTHING...he should fire whoever negotiated this BS. He's a desperate dummy....the catalogue is what you LIVE ON during the lean times....SMH...Hopefully he has some more grammy winning songs left in hm.

Some may think the 23 mil is low for hit songs, but those songs are OLD and who is buying music now?

And if the Dream doesn't get hired to produce music anymore what prospects does he really have?

The quick liquid cash fusion is a good business move in terms of value of cash vs time.
23 million today is 16 million of tomorrow.

And if these music platforms are lying about streaming numbers like Tidal this may have a snowball effect in the industry.

STUPID, I'd rather have my ass in the poorhouse with all my publishing rights. That money will come back if he'd just sit his ass down somewhere & stop having all those damn kids with women he can't commit to.
