(WJBF) – After years of disputes, the estate of the Godfather of Soul has been sold to a publishing and management company.
Primary Wave Music announced Monday that it has agreed to a reported $90 million deal to purchase the estate of James Brown. The company will control Brown’s publishing, music, master recordings, as well as his name and likeness rights.
