With the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album still in the works for a spring release, producer Hit-Boy has provided a small update on a recent London studio session.
Confirming recent hints by singer Marsha Ambrosius, Hit-Boy said fans can really expect a star-studded line-up of guest features.
"I was in London for a week. It was my first time in London. Those were actually the first sessions of the G.O.O.D. Music album. I worked with my G.O.O.D. Music family and met some nice young ladies. [Laughs.] It was amazing. I did a whole bunch of stuff when I was up there," Hit-Boy revealed. "Mannie Fresh was [in the studio with us], Pusha T was there, Big Sean was there, [Kanye West] was there obviously. Marsha Ambrosius, Frank Ocean, Jay Electronica, and John Legend all came through. We all vibed and made amazing music. [I don't know if Jay Electronica spit a verse], I was just in my room working on a bunch of ideas Kanye wanted me to do. I really didn't get to come up there. But Pusha spit a gang of verses to my beats, so did Big Sean, Kanye, and John Legend." (Complex)
A few days ago, reports emerged detailing the project's speculated first single.
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 likely 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)
