Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music Signs With Def Jam

Kanye West’s label G.O.O.D. Music signed an exclusive worldwide deal with Island Def Jam Music Group. The move now gives the popular label a permanent home.

The first release under the deal is Big Sean’s Finally Famous, which hits stores tomorrow (June 28). Big Sean’s song “My Last” is #1 on the Billboard Rap Songs chart, and #4 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

The deal also means that future projects from signees Cyhi The Prynce, Pusha T, and Nigerian artist D’banj are slated for a Def Jam release.

Ye’s new venture has execs at IDJ very optimistic. “G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam,” said Chairman/CEO of IDJMG Barry Weiss.

Def Jam COO Steve Bartles added, “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.”

As of press time there is no word on G.O.O.D. Music’s next release after Big Sean. —Mike Hennix
