Future’s KSAT connection

In Future’s “High Off Life” album released in May 2020, Future sampled a clip of KSAT anchor Steve Spriester from a 2014 newscast.

Roughly 2 1/2 minutes into the song, longtime Spriester can be heard talking about a bank robbery that occurred in San Antonio. You can listen to the story the audio was used from here.

Spriester’s voice can be heard in an interlude saying, “The police need your help in tracking down a suspect in a bank robbery this morning on the city’s North Side. According to police, the suspect walked into the bank about nine this morning, went straight to one of the tellers, handed over a note that said ‘put money in bag.’”

KSAT was not made aware of the sampling ahead of the song’s release.
