Powered by blockchain technology, VerseBooks is the music industry’s first social marketplace and community for licensing music compositions, including lyrics, hooks, audio vocals and master recordings. It can be used to acquire, manage, monetize and market music intellectual property.

In a December 2020 article published by Yahoo! Finance, current VerseBooks president Ryan Larry VerseBooks said he was inspired by an A&R who brokers verses in Los Angeles [Markoff].

“As an executive music producer, I have catalogs that I own from various artists, both mainstream and unknown,” Larry said at the time. “My A&R buddy licenses verses I own for substantial money. I knew that there was a demand for licensing verses, just no platform to facilitate the social, commercial model, and framework. One day, I was speaking to Delence about apps and gave him the idea base for VerseBooks. After that, it was officially under construction.”

Lopez is clearly thrilled by the newfound recognition. When DJ Wally Sparks tweeted, “Tito Lo deserves his flowers,” he replied “My brotha.” He added in a separate tweet, “HELL YEAH WORD lol RETWEET THAT TWEET!”
