Hipgnosis has acquired a 50% stake in the publishing catalogue and master recording rights of Rick James. “Rick James was a true innovator”, says founder Merck Mercuriadis. “His ‘punk funk’ philosophy and style paved the way and influenced everyone from Prince to Michael Jackson to Jay Z and the biggest names in hip hop.
