Blake Griffin Breaks Into Hollywood With Mortal Media | Forbes

Published

on

Since the L.A. Clippers drafted him with the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft, Blake Griffin has won the Slam Dunk Contest, become Rookie of the Year and made the All-Star team five times.

The money has followed. Last year he scored a five-year, $171 million contract extension. That deal, plus sponsorships with the likes of Red Bull and Nike’s Jordan brand, has made him one of the world’s highest-paid celebrities. In all, Griffin, who now plays for the Detroit Pistons, pulled in $35.5 million in 2018.

Now he’s putting those dollars to work off the court with his Hollywood production company, Mortal Media. “We want to get into film, TV, digital, and lay the foundation for a company that we can run once we’re done with our current careers.” The company has sold eight movie and television projects, five of which are in active development, most notably reboots of White Men Can’t Jump and Disney’s The Rocketeer.

Bodak Green: How To Earn Eye-Popping Yields From Music Royalties | Forbes

Published

By

When looking for alternative asset classes, some spenders are looking at music royalties as a way to invest without depending on traditional stock market trends.

Historically, music catalogs generally cost tens or even hundreds of millions and were rarely chopped up song by song, let alone down to a percentage of a single track. Creators were often underpaid for their music as well. But, the evolution of streaming services is changing the way royalties make money. From movie and TV show music catalogs to songs by hip hop artists Cardi B and Tupac, investing in music has proven to be a lucrative business — for artists and investors alike.

The 100 Companies Doing Right By America | Forbes

Published

on

By

Shareholder returns mean nothing if a company’s workers, customers, communities and environments aren’t considered, too. That’s the reasoning underlying the third annual Just 100, our ranking of America’s best corporate citizens with our research partner Just Capital.

As it is every year, the Just 100 is a reflection of the issues that matter most to Americans and a ranking of how the nation’s largest publicly traded companies perform in these areas. After almost a year of data-crunching (which you can learn more about here), these are the names that are setting the standard in stakeholder treatment and prove that it is possible for a corporation to do well by doing good.
