Distrokid's Youtube Money Option for Hip-Hop & EDM? Alternatives?

So I posted this on Reddit and got no replies. Hoping the good folks at gearslutz could help me out.
So I'm a Hip-Hop artist who decided to sign up with DistroKid to distribute my music. Didn't realize that DK doesn't allow Youtube Money (Content ID) as an option when selecting Hip-Hop or EDM as the genre. Problem is, I already signed up and paid for DK's Label Plan so I don't think I'll be switching to another distributor anytime soon.

Does anyone have experience with successfully using DK to distribute plus another service for the Youtube Content ID stuff? I've seen other posts that kinda talk about it, but not really any satisfactory conclusions.

I've heard that SongTrust covers this, but also have heard that quite a few people were having issues getting their music approved by Songtrust.

Other services I've heard of are AdRev for self service CID and Identifyy for full service CID - I don't have any experience with any of these. I'd like to hear your advice and experiences with these services or any other service that does the Youtube Money stuff.
