The upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is continuing to come together and will reportedly make a new record called "Lamborghini, Murci" be its first official single.
According to reports, the record features Kanye West plus G.O.O.D. Music power hitters Pusha T and Big Sean.
A source close to Def Jam has informed me that the tentative first single from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation is to be "Lamborghini, Murci." The track, which was produced by Phoenix-based producer Lifted, is set to feature Kanye West, Pusha T and Big Sean. No word on when this is to drop, but I've heard it's a monster. (Fake Shore Drive)
Last week, rapper Jay Electronica and singer Marsha Ambrosius were revealed as contributors.
G.O.O.D. Music is keeping good company on its forthcoming compilation. Kanye West has called on some of his friends outside of the crew to work on the highly-anticipated album. Frank Ocean, Marsha Ambrosius, and Jay Electronica are among the latest artists to fly to London to record with Yeezy and his G.O.O.D. Music family. "In the studio with Frank Ocean, Big Sean, Pusha T, Manny Fresh :) Kanye West is on the way!!! I'm having fun today," tweeted Marsha, later adding, "Thoroughly enjoyed my quick trip to London. Witnessed greatness. @PUSHA_T 'THAT VERSE!' & @BigSean 'Marsha Marsha Marsha.' KANYE!!! #1." Former Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh has also been cooking up some tracks for the spring release, along with Big Sean, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, Mr. Hudson, Hit-Boy and more. (Rap-Up)
In December, G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean said the project would be completed overseas.
"We're gonna do the G.O.O.D. Music album first; we been working on that," Big Sean said in an interview. "So, me, Kanye, [Kid] Cudi, CyHi, John Legend, Common, Pusha T, everybody on G.O.O.D., Mr Hudson: We're all working on a new project; it's almost done. We're going to London to finish it up and do the last part of it and working on my album at the same time with 'Ye and everybody." (MTV)
A month prior, G.O.O.D. Music contributing producer Ken Lewis told SOHH he hoped to contribute to Ye's compilation album.
"I've already worked with Kid Cudi, so Kanye's checked off the list, Cudi's checked off the list," Lewis added when asked who he would want to work with in G.O.O.D. Music. "Big Sean, I'd love to work with him. The good thing is hopefully I'll be able to work with all of them. I'm an equal opportunity guy, I want to work with everybody." (SOHH)
The G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is slated to drop spring 2012.
