Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music Inks Deal with Def Jam
G.O.O.D Music is responsible for jump-starting the careers of many of today’s stars including Kid Cudi, Common and John Legend; most people don’t know that it’s never had a record label home…until now.
Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music imprint will now become a part of the Island Def Jam family with a worldwide label agreement deal; Big Sean will be the first artist to benefit from this partnership. The announcement was made this morning by Kanye West, Universal Motown Republic Group and Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman & CEO Barry Weiss, and President & COO of Island Def Jam Music Group Steve Bartels.
Weiss released the following statement following the announcement:
“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 to G.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean…Kanye is an integral core member of the IDJ family, and G.O.O.D. Music continues his unselfish tradition of bringing along great new artists to the forefront.”
Big Sean is a lucky man. His debut album, Finally Famous, dropped today. Are you buying?
