Future’s hits have created a cult following over the years, but it looks like he’s ready to let them all go, for a very big price.
According to several media, Future sold its catalog from 2004 to 2020 to Influence Media Partners. The payout was not disclosed, it was reported that the deal is worth the “high eight figures”.
In 16 years, the controversial rapper has released 612 singles and eight studio albums, and has been featured on several songs as well as a litany of well-received mixtapes.
“I put everything into my music and wanted to make sure they were in good hands as I thought about the next chapter for these songs,” Future said. “I’m proud to partner 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 most precious of my career.
Lynn Hazan, Influence Media Co-Managing Partner reportedly worked closely on the deal,
“We see Future as an artist of the ages. It resonates across a wide range of demographics,” Hazan said, as reported by Hypebeast. “We are delighted with this partnership, it is a fitting addition to our growing roster of top talent and it furthers our forward-thinking mission. Now at Influence, it is destiny to be able to collaborate with him again alongside my dynamic partners to protect his legacy and his works,” she added.
