Future’s Publishing Catalog Acquired by Influence Media in Estimated Eight-Figure Deal

0

Future’s publishing catalog has been acquired by Influence Media in an estimated deal worth eight figures.

Influence Media, a New York-based entertainment company first launched in 2019, announced the deal on Tuesday. In a statement, Influence Media partner and founding advisor Rene McLean noted Future’s status as a “cultural icon” whose influence can’t be denied.

“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,” McLean said. “It is rare to find someone who moves music and culture at the same speed with his distinct vocal and melodic style.”

For Future, the acquisition—which includes 612 tracks spanning from 2004 to 2020—is part of ensuring his songs get the “next chapter” they deserve.

“My music is my art, and these songs represent some of the most precious artwork of my career,” he said.

Confirmed to be included in the deal are notable songs including “Mask Off,” the Drake collabs “Jumpman” and “Life Is Good,” and more. Aside from billing the move as an eight-figure acquisition in a press release, Influence Media did not specify the exact dollar amount of the deal. Billboard, however, said Tuesday their estimates show that Future’s catalog could have gone for as much as $75 million.

Interestingly, news of a Future deal comes fresh off a report alleging that discussions had been held involving potential buyers for the catalog of the artist formerly known as Kanye West. Ye, however, quickly clarified that any such discussions were being done without his knowledge and compared the situation to the masters-centered controversy surrounding Taylor Swift a few years back. Later, he shared a text referring to the report as “fake news.”

Also on Monday, Future dropped the video for “I’M DAT N****,” which you can watch below.
