Since Princes death two years ago, there has been much controversy surrounding his unheard music and whether or not it should be released for all of his fans to hear.

In January this year, the icons producer, George Boxill, threatened to put out some tracks that he and the star had worked on.

However, the Purple Rain singers estate, Paisley Park Enterprises, filed a lawsuit against Boxill in an attempt to stop the music mogul releasing Princes work.

The estate took home their victory, but it looks like they may now be about to follow in Boxills footsteps as rumours are circulating that they might want to turn Princes poetry and lyrics into profit.

According to TMZ, PPE have filed paperwork in order to produce printed content of his work, including the collectors books of his handwritten lyrics.

The publication also claims that Princes never-before-seen photos and journals could also be released.

This sounds like great news for fans as they will once again be able to celebrate the life of the legend, however, were unsure what the star would have made of it himself.

Despite us selfishly wanting Prince to keep giving from his grave, he made it very clear before he passed that companies who tried to sell him out needed to be shut down.

In 2007 he had his entire back catalogue removed from YouTube after a mother uploaded a video of her kids dancing to Lets Go Crazy.

As time passed he became more and more outspoken about Apple Music and Spotify and refused to have any of his music uploaded onto streaming sites.

He said: I dont see why I should give my music to iTunes or anybody else. They wont pay me in advance for it and then they get angry when they cant get it.

Despite his hate for online streaming, he did give in to one site: Tidal.

They charge customers $19.99 (just under £15) a month, which may sound a bit steep, but that extra cash helps pay increased royalties to artists.

Prince told Ebony: My thing is this, the catalogue has to be protected. Spotify wasnt paying so youve got to shut it down.

Meanwhile, police released a video that was taken inside Princes Paisley Park home on the day he died.

The video – released on 20 April – revealed shots of his legendary vault that contained shelves of unheard recordings, which we hope will eventually see the light of day.
