Does Steve Lacy Own His Masters?

It is rare that artists own their masters. Masters are usually owned by record labels, and artists receive royalties for the use of their recordings. Steve Lacy is a young artist who has already had a successful career, but it is not known if he owns his masters. If he does not, then it is likely that his record label does. Unfortunately, this means that Lacy may not have control over how his recordings are used in the future. This could prevent him from being able to release new albums or licensing his music for use in films or television shows. However, if Lacy does own his masters, then he will have a lot more control over his career and will be able to make decisions about how his music is used. It is always possible, if an artist has enough leverage, to negotiate or even purchase their masters in time.
