With fans anticipating a spring 2012 releasse for rap star Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, Big Sean claims the LP will receive its finishing touches overseas.
Practically finished, Sean said Ye and the G.O.O.D. Music family are headed out to London.
“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)
Last month, G.O.O.D. Music contributing producer Ken Lewis told SOHH he hoped to be a part of 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)
In November, Sean also hinted at what fans could anticipate from the LP.
“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. So, 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)
Recently, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Common said he was ready to drop some bars for Ye.
“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)
The G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is slated to drop spring 2012.
