Fans of late R&B singer Aaliyah finally got their wish when it was announced earlier this month her entire catalog would be finally available on Spotify beginning Aug. 20. Her label Blackground Records, founded by Aaliyah's uncle and former manager Barry Hankerson, struck a deal with EMPIRE, an indie company based in the Bay Area that will make Blackground's entire inventory available for physical and digital consumption. The catalog is made up of 17 albums by musicians like Aaliyah, Timbaland & Magoo, Toni Braxton and JoJo.

Hankerson has been at the center of the fight to make Aaliyah's music available, and this is not the only controversy that will forever soil his legacy as a producer and entertainment manager.
