Kanye West Producing Albums For Entire G.O.O.D. Music Roster
Throughout 2017, reports have stated that Kanye West is currently in the studio working on making his return to music following a highly-publicized breakdown during his 2016 Saint Pablo tour. Well, it also looks like Kanye isn’t just working on his return, but producing albums for his entire G.O.O.D. Music roster.
CyHi The Prynce broke the news that West was producing his entire rosters forthcoming albums in a recent interview, “I got a project I’m doing that’s all produced by him. He’s doing it for every artist on the label. [Big] Sean’s got one that will be executive produced by him. Pusha’s next album is strictly produced by him. Teyana [Taylor’s album]. Kid Cudi’s strictly [Kanye]. He does, like, ten beats a day.”
It was reported back in June that Pusha T’s highly-anticipated third album, King Push, would be solely produced by West. King Push serves as the follow up to Pusha’s 2015 LP, Darkest Before Dawn.
G.O.O.D. Music’s roster consist of Teyana Taylor, Kacy Hill, HXLT, CyHi The Prynce, Desiigner, Pusha T, Francis and the Lights, Big Sean, and Tyga –
who signed with G.O.O.D. Music at the end of 2016, following his split with Lil Wayne’s YMCMB/Cash Money.
G.O.O.D. Music had a hell of a run this year with releases from the longtime label vets Big Sean and CyHi The Prynce – along with huge diamond-certified success from the label’s newest signee, Desiigner, and his hit, “Panda.”
Several months ago, Kanye West and Kid Cudi were spotted in Japan with reports claiming the two were in the studio working on a possible joint project. No official word on the authenticity of that, but Cudder and Yeezus did hit the stage when the “Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin'” tour stopped in Chicago last month.
Kanye West’s hit production catalog stretches as early as 2000, crafting Billboard number-ones for Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, and Drake just to name a few.
