G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean has become the latest artist to comment on Kanye West's planned label compilation project set to come out next spring and hinted at a few of the confirmed guest features.
Excited about the LP, Sean said fans could expect to see the usual G.O.O.D. Music suspects spit some bar.
"Kanye was like, 'Yo, we got the illest people in the world on one label.' I've been telling him, 'We need to do a group thing, a group album.' Since my album came out, since he just did Watch the Throne, he was like, 'The next thing we should do is the G.O.O.D. Music album,'" Sean explained in an interview. S"o, we're going to have singles. It's going to be a real a** album. [It'll have] me, Kanye, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, everybody -- [Kid] Cudi, everybody, man. It's going to be nuts -- it's almost done. I ain't done with my part though." (Power 92)
Last week, G.O.O.D. Music's Common said he is anticipating the album.
"We had talked about it before, but it was actually some new news to me that it was going forward," Common said referring to the compilation album. "But I'm definitely looking forward to it and I obviously want to be a part of it. I'm G.O.O.D. Music family forever. Even though my album is not coming out on G.O.O.D. Music, I'm still a G.O.O.D. Music affiliate and artist. That's my family forever." (VIBE)
A few days prior, G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T revealed he already locked in a few 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 compilation album being in the works.
"GOODMUSIC.THE ALBUM.SPRING2012," he tweeted Wednesday. (Kanye West's Twitter)
