Hip-pop disk jockey DJ Prince Kaybee has weighed in his opinion about the conversation of owning your masters after fellow South African rapper Thsego dropped a bomb on Twitter for not getting paid for mastering his own song under Cassper’s family tree.
According to DJ Prince Kaybee, it is not always profitable to own your own masters if you don’t know how to profit from them. The DJ started his comment by revealing he did not own his masters and threaded with caution to not make enemies for himself. Fellow disk jockey DJ Maphorisa stepped on several artists’ toes when he bragged about him and his artists owning their own masters. Prince Kaybee, in his comment, acknowledges that one person can not fully own art since it is a collaborative project and further revealed that only a few people who own their masters truly profit from it.
