G.O.O.D. Music Officially Joins Def Jam

With the release of Big Sean’s debut Finally Famous tomorrow, Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music is now under the Def Jam umbrella. The album will serve as the first release via the partnership. Says Chairman Barry Weiss:

“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.”

President and COO of IDJMG Steve Bartels says:

“Kanye’s genius has been proven time and time again on records and onstage. He not only pours it out for himself, but he has made the difference with his presence on innumerable projects with other artists who are indebted to him. 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.”

    Cool, def jam needed that. Big Sean is wack though, that shit is gonna flop.

  • Mr. A. From Tha T

    G.O.O.D. Look for def jam, they got close to being irrelevant, or more just not putting their artists out, like ok go get famous now

  • CK

    i thought good music was already def jam. and what will it change??

  • mac DIESEL

    TAX RIGHT OFF FOR KANYE!!!! AND HUGE FOR DEF JAM!!!!

    ….GUARANTEE IF L.A. RIED WACK ASS WAS STILL THERE, G.O.O.D MUSIC WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THERE!!!!

    ….AND IT’S STILL FUCK L.A. RIED AND THE WHOLE DEF JAM STAFF TILL THE END OF THE YEAR!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    Imean I enjoyed Big Seans album. Kid Cudi is dope. I dont really know who else they got but Sean and Cudi is enough for me to root for them

  • DJ

    @Word

    Pusha T & John Legend are also on GOOD Music, but I think their already under other labels.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Isn’t MOS DEF on good music right? This is a decent move.

  • Wolverine

    Nothing new. All the Kanye West album had the Def Jam logo on them. Kid Cudi is talented, but his albums aren’t strong enough. Big Sean is on Soulja Boy level. Where are the new Nigerian artists?

  • East ATL

    Big Sean is wack

  • steveywonderz

    great movie, kanye knows whats up always

  • zezzoi

    Common wins

    Def Jam has a HISTORY of not releasing shit

    see Ghostface

    Common said “Im gettin the fuck outta here” and went to Warner. Clap for em

    G.O.O.D. Music tho >>>>>, but Def Jam won’t give them their proper shine.

    Big Seans album & CyHi’s Royal Flush 2 >>>>

  • Word

    @DJ Oh yeah Pusha and John “Hook King” Legend are dope too. Strong label right there

  • Hip-Hop Fien

    Big Sean going platinum in a week

    Kanye West really deserve this. He’s one of the hardest working men in this industry. I am so proud of Big Sean’s success. He has one of the nicest attitude in this industry. When I met him, he was so polite and humble. http://yodonbleekraps.com Hip-Hop News, Entertainment Updates,Videos, Pictures, Interviews, Fashion, Sneakers & More.

    lol that wolverine guy is an complete idiot who knows nothing about music ” Where are the new Nigerian artists? ” lmao, GTFO!

  • Empire

    @Word

    Idk if u ever took the time to listen to John Legend’s albums, but his solo shit blows his hook-work out of the water. Not hating on his hooks at all, either- he’s just an incredible artist.

    p.s. He’s another one that won’t be moving. Sticking with Sony.

  • Word

    @Empire

    Oh yeah no doubt John The Legend is an incredible artist its just that his hook on Big Sean’s album was so great that I recalled his other hooks in the past and realised this guy is a hook king. Its just cuz of the moment but of.course he’s an overall great artist.

  • Rello

    Mannn Big Sean Album Is The Best Album I’ve Heard In A While You Stupid If You Think It’s Gonna Flop….

  • BK

    Big sean is a corn boy, only pussy niggas like him.

  • Mr. A From Tha T

    @Wolverine I saw D’banj at the BET carpet last night, but tell you the truth, if you goin to G.O.O.D. music, be ready to twiddle your thumbs for like 1-2 years

    @Hip hop Fien and Rello— mann i kno and i wish but i gotta feelin its just gonna be one’a those cases where shit just aint gon pop off right, but when its all said and done GOOD is shitin on everybody else but like Drake and MMG

  • webstar

    Why is this news? The Def Jam imprint has been on their releases? What does this change?

  • http://www.hoodhype.com Jazzystaysfly

    This is a classic power move. Good Job Def Jam for seizing the moment in promoting! This just solidifies their label brand as a powerhouse.

  • Chan

    Man that shirt Swizz has on is really cool. Does anybody know who makes it or where you can buy it?

  • Chan

    Oh and I agree with Ben. Big Sean is wack. Kanye is the shit though. Congrats Kanye.

  • Jaymalls

    G.O.O.D Music is probably wanna of the strongest labels. Almost every1 has their own lane. KID KUDI got his weed punk-rock raps, COMMON got his “hip-Hop” conscious raps, JOHN LEGEND got that R&B soul music, PUSHA T got that “Coke Rap” locked, BIG SEAN got that witty “girl geared” rap that dudes can relate to, CHYHI got that new school lyrical underground lane locked… N KANYE WEST!!!

  • Hip-Hop Fien

    @jaymalls co sign

  • Ken The Master
