nas lost for co writing a grammy winning song?
9.1 cents per song = copyright statutory rate. This is money a record label has to set aside to pay a publisher or owner/writer to reproduce and distribute their music in phonorecord format.

However if this cast of writers had to divy up the money then maybe not as much as you think.
The album was eventually certified 9x platinum by RIAA on July 20, 2000, denoting 9 million shipments in the U.S alone. "

The single went gold which = 500,000 units and then individual album sales + at least 9 million units shipped. Remember labels and artists get paid based up the amount of units a retailer (i.e. iTunes, Wal-Mart, etc.) purchases.

(.091 x 500,000) + (.091 or the rate for ONE song on the album x 9,000,000) = $864,500

$864,500 = total song writer/owner statutory rate income

$864,500 / 6 writers = $144,083 for Gnozir perhaps

This of course is barring any crazy contractual stipulations or if Nas did a "work for hire" writing agreement and just wrote for a wage and someone else a.ssumes song writer ownership. But I guess an idea

Lol. When Jay stans bring up Jay's money, Nas stans shoot it down, and pay it no mind. Now that the money card benefits Nas, they accept it.

Gotta love it.

Nas won for getting paid. Nas lost because The Fresh Prince got more Grammys than he does.

This sh*t too complicated for you all?
