Rap star Kendrick Lamar is fielding offers from a number of music publishers, who want to manage his lucrative catalog.

Kendrick, who has moved over 9.5 million units since his debut album Section 8.0, is currently winding down a deal with Warner/Chappell Music.

According to Billboard, the rapper's contract is about to expire, and he has been offered as much as $30 million dollars for the rights to administer his music.

While the offers have varied, none of them has fallen below $20 million dollars and one publisher is even offering the Compton rapper an $11 million dollar advance.

Representatives for Kendrick's label Top Dawg Entertainment have yet to comment on the reports.
