Influence  Media  Partners  purchased  American  rapper-singer-songwriter  Future's catalogue  which  spans  16years(2004-2020). 

According  to  Hypebeast,  despite  the  catalogue's  exact  price  not  being  disclosed,  a  source  close  to  the  deal  revealed  that  the  rapper  was  paid  in  the  "eight  figures".

 

 

Future  released  612  singles  across  eight  studio  albums  over  the  above-stated  period,  in  addition  to  collaborations,  a  reissued  longplay(LP),  mixtapes,  and  songs  not  listed  on  any  full-length  project.

 

 

Future's  highest-charting  solo  single,  Mask  Off,  is  included.  As  is  his  GRAMMY Award-winning  collaboration  with  Kendrick  Lamar,  Jay Rock,  and  James  Blake  on  King's Dead.

 

 

His  catalogue  also  includes  Life  Is  Good,  a  classic  collaboration  with  Drake  and  Selfish,  a  collaboration  with  Rihanna.

 

 

Speaking  about  the  reasoning  behind  selling  his  catalogue  he  said,  “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”

He  continued  by  saying  “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’s  Co-Managing  Partner,  Lynn  Hazan,  shared  that  she  had  worked  with  Future  during  her  tenure  at  Epic  Records.

 

 

What  does  it  mean  to  sell  your  Catalogue?

 

 

The  ownership  of  an  artiste's or  songwriter's  composition(melody,  lyrics,  and  beat)  is  commonly  referred  to  as  "publishing"  or  "catalogue"

When  a  catalogue  is  sold,  the  songwriter  typically  forfeits  100%  of  his  or  her  copyright  interest — all  income  and  rights  in  each  song.
