Influence Media Partners has acquired Grammy-winning Future’s publishing catalog from 2004 to 2020, the company announced. The prolific rapper’s work from those years spans 612 titles, including titles with frequent collaborator Drake (“Life Is Good,” “Jumpman”), Kendrick Lamar (“King’s Dead”), Rihanna (“Selfish”), and the Weeknd (“Low Life”) and his own solo hits like “Mask Off.”

A source close to the situation tells Variety the deal was in the “high eight figures.”

Only up to 2020? Interesting. I don't recall any of the other deals mentioning the sale only covering a certain timeframe.
