Rapper Future Sells Publishing Catalog In A Deal Reportedly Worth Eight Figures

Future said, “Life Is Good,” and with this new deal — it’s apparent.

Variety reports that the rapper’s publishing catalog has been sold for around eight figures.

The deal was solidified by Influence Media Partners, who purchased the rapper’s publishing catalog. It includes 612 titles from 2004 to 2020.

Some standouts from the impressive catalog include his smash hit “Mask Off” and collaborations with Kendrick Lamar (“King’s Dead”), Rihanna (“Selfish”), the Weeknd (“Low Life”), and Drake (“Life Is Good,” “Jumpman”), which scored the second spot on the Hot 100 chart in 2020.

To date, Future has blessed the music world with eight studio albums, four collaborative albums, one reissued album, one soundtrack, and four commercial mixtapes. Of those titles, six of them have reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

“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 in a statement, according to a press release. “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.”

“Future is a cultural icon,” Influence Media Partner and Founding Advisor Rene McLean said in a statement, according to a press release. “He continues to be a blueprint for impact and success in the music industry and has reinvented music in ways that no one has ever expected. It is rare to find someone who moves music and culture at the same speed with his distinct vocal and melodic style. His prolific career and continued popularity more than 15 years into the game is a testament to his undeniable influence on the contemporary music and culture landscape.”

Influence Media Co-Managing Partner Lynn Hazan — who worked with Future while she was general manager and CFO at his label, Epic Records — also added a statement:

“We consider Future an artist of the ages. He resonates across a spectrum of demographics. 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. During my tenure at Epic Records, I was able to work with and support Future throughout his pivotal career. 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.”
