[photogallerylink id=84813 align=left]When it comes to the music game, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm], while not the most likable character is simply a genius. One of the most critically acclaimed rappers ever, he continues to push limits and boundaries in music and challenge the status quo, and the best part is that he built a whole music label around that very idea.
G.O.O.D. Music, Kanye’s label, features artist, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Big Sean[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kid Cudi[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mos Def[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Common[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mr. Hudson[/lastfm] to name a few. These are some of the most talented and eclectic artists that we get to listen to and Kanye is bringing them all to you on one CD.
Over the summer 2010, Ye’ spent a lot of time online promoting his label, promising new music from his artists every week for months, he called it G.O.O.D. Friday and it was on point. Over that time he released previews of songs that eventually ended up on the album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, as well as other artists songs and collaborations that floated around the internet waiting for a moment just like this.
Fortunately, Kanye made the effort to collaborate with artists outside his label and t’s been reported that even songs featuring non-label artists may appear on the CD. That adds talented folks like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]J. Cole[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Keri Hilson[/lastfm] and revered recording artist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ryan Leslie[/lastfm].
According to Kanye’s tweet, Spring 2012 is the due date for the label album. No other info has been released yet, but Kanye’s parent label Def Jam Records confirmed his assertion with a
tweet of their own. This has the potential to be a great compilation of awesome music. I can’t wait for the final product!
