After Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West hinted at plans to put out a G.O.O.D. Music compilation album next year a couple weeks ago, The Clipse's Pusha T has now provided a small update on the project.
Although its still in the early stages, Pusha said he has already clocked in records.
"Oh man, I think its gonna be serious," he said of the project. "I was part of four joints thus far. I don't know where they gonna land or who's gonna be on them, 'cause everybody's doing so much. [The] 'Watch the Throne' [Tour] starts in a few days; all of that was gong on, rehearsals. I came up to the city and it was some joints that I [heard] and was like 'Hey, I need this.' I didn't leave. I stayed and did them. I don't know who else came up to the city and how Kanye is gong to maestro who gets on what, but I think it will... it will probably work a lot like his album. That album, [My Beautiful] Dark Twisted Fantasy, it was one of them things where he let people do them and whatever fit, fit." (XXL Mag)
Around mid-October, Yeezy broke the news of a new compilation album being in the works.
"GOODMUSIC.THE ALBUM.SPRING2012," he tweeted Wednesday. (Kanye West's Twitter)
Last year, Ye kept fans on their toes by launching his G.O.O.D. Music Fridays allowing him to drop new records on a weekly basis featuring his artists like Kid Cudi and Big Sean.
"I would definitely be a part of that, because I'm still Getting Out Our Dreams," former G.O.O.D. Music artist GLC said earlier this week in New York. "Church! I think it's a beautiful concept, because I've been doing that for the last two years on the Internet. Prior to me signing my deal with EMI, I had five or six different offers from labels. And with EMI, to be the first artist they did a deal with that doesn't have a distribution history, man, it works." (MTV)
Over the summer, Ye's G.O.O.D. Music team officially inked a deal with Def Jam.
"G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam," said Universal Motown Group CEO Barry Weiss. "As a recording artist and a producer over the past eight years, there is no one who has made a greater impression on the game than Kanye. We look forward to working closely with the new and established artists that he will be bringing toG.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean." (Statement)
G.O.O.D. Music artists and affiliates include Kanye West, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Common, Big Sean, Mos Def, GLC, Really Doe, Mr. Hudson, Cyhi Da Prynce, John Legend and more.
No further details have been revealed as of now.
