Rap Genius Partners With Universal Music Publishing Group


Last year, Rap Genius was in hot water after the site was accused of not having the appropriate licenses to legally publish song lyrics on their site. Now, the database has partnered with Universal Music Publishing Group.

By agreeing on terms with Universal and joining forces with Sony in November, Rap Genius has licensing rights to use lyrics from both of the world’s top two publishing groups.

Strategically, experts are forecasting Rap Genius will look to build a relationship with Warner/Chappell Music next.
