Migos and Tyga Sign With G.O.O.D. Music
The G.O.O.D. Music team has always operated as a (Grammy) family, and Kanye West furthered that notion by announcing at a G.O.O.D. Music pop-up show in New York City Wednesday night (Sept. 7) that Tyga had signed to the label.
Tyga has dated Kylie Jenner, Kanye's sister-in-law, on-and-off for years, and said this past January that he was working with Ye on what would eventually become The Life of Pablo as well as some additional music. Tyga was signed to Cash Money, calling out the label on wax for unpaid royalties earlier this year, but his last LP The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty came out on his own indie label Last Kings Records.
That wasn't the only piece of G.O.O.D. news revealed last night however, as Pusha T also announced that the Migos had signed a management deal with the collective. Back in March, Quavo posted a photo to Instagram of the group with Kanye West and others, and when "Champions" dropped in June, Quavo is the first voice heard.

Kanye performed a few songs such as "Father Stretch My Hands Pt 2" and "Famous" with Desiigner working the crowd over as well.
How the newly grown roster comes together for the upcoming Cruel Winter compilation remains to be seen, but Travis Scott said just this week that the label project will drop in February of 2017. “Every G.O.O.D. Music artist is involved. It’s amazing. And we got our illest friends,” he said.
