Pusha T Named President of G.O.O.D. Music
Pusha T has been named the President of G.O.O.D. Music Inc. according to a report from Billboard. The rapper, who has not released a solo project since 2013's King Push but recently popped up on Diddy's MMM album, was offered the position by Kanye West four months ago and recently agreed to take the job after mulling it over. "I was flying home and I had just got into my car at the airport. ‘Ye had called me and he was like, 'Tell me something. What do you think about being the president of G.O.O.D. Music?' said Pusha. "And I was like, 'Well, what are the things that you’re looking for?' And he was basically just like, to manicure the label, make it profitable and be very business-oriented about it going forward in a manicured type of way."
Push touched on what his role as president will entail and also spoke on the chances of getting a sequel to Cruel Summer. "I have that on my mood board. [Laughs.] I definitely have that on my mood board," Push said of another label compilation project. "I’ve had different conversations with the artists. Me and the rest of the artists on G.O.O.D. are really a phone call away and we’re really dialed into the music aspect of it as well. It’s not a hard process and it’s gonna be cool to collaborate with my peers and then come to ‘Ye as an executive producer and be like, 'Look at this fresh ass shit we got here.' I think we’ll be getting the best out of him, executive producing projects that come from the label from here on out because he gets to really hone in as a producer. I’ll take care of all the logistics, the rallying of the troops, and so on and so forth. He don’t gotta be producer, A&R, rapper and everything. We’re all here to help and facilitate. I’m definitely stepping up for the job."
Finally, the Clipse member gave an update on the long-awaited, highly anticipated King Push album. "My album is just a whole other thing in all honesty. F’real, what you’re gonna get from this King Push album is something people probably haven’t heard in the past 18 years. I’m just putting it together, aiming for classic material."
