Future has sold his catalog from the years 2004 to 2020 to Influence Media Partners. While the exact price of the catalog wasn’t disclosed, a source close to the deal told Variety that the rapper fetched a price in the “high eight figures.”
Beginning with the launch of his career, the sixteen-year period saw Future release 612 singles across eight studio albums, in addition to collaborations, a reissued LP, mixtapes and songs not listed on any full-length project.
Among the mix of tracks in the catalog is Future’s highest-charting solo single, “Mas Off” and his GRAMMY Award-winning “King’s Dead” with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and James Blake.
The catalog also includes one of his iconic tracks with Drake, “Life Is Good” and his Rihanna collaboration, “Selfish.”
“I put everything into my music, and I wanted to make sure these were in good hands as I thought about the next chapter of these songs,” Future said. “I’m proud to partner up with Rene and the team at Influence Media and send a signal that this music has timeless value. My music is my art, and these songs represent some of the most precious artwork of my career.”
Influence Media Co-Managing Partner, Lynn Hazan, shared that she had worked with Future during her tenure at Epic Records.
“We consider Future an artist of the ages. He resonates across a spectrum of demographics,” Hazan said. “We’re so excited about this partnership, it’s a fitting addition to our growing repertoire of top-tier talent and promotes our forward-thinking mission.”
“Now at Influence, it feels like fate to be able to collaborate with him again alongside my dynamic partners to protect his legacy and works,” she added.
