Pusha T Is The New President of G.O.O.D. Music

Pusha T has announced that Kanye West asked him to be the new president of G.O.O.D. Music. I think this is great news as Pusha T could definitely help other artists on the roster push their albums out—artists like CyHi the Prynce or Kacy Hill. Seeing as how Kanye hasn't been a perfect label-head, he could use the help. Check out Pusha T's interview with Billboard here.

A big congratulations are in order. Just got word that you will be the president of G.O.O.D. Music. How was the offer presented you?

Actually, 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?” 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.

Should we still keep our hopes up for a Cruel Summer 2 LP or some type of G.O.O.D. Music compilation in the near future?

I have that on my mood board. [Laughs.] I definitely have that on my mood board. 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.

Stay tuned for more info as I think we'll be getting a new song soon. Enjoy.

Rae Sremmurd- "No Flex Zone Remix (feat. Nicki Minaj & Pusha T)"

We frequently encounter those songs that we know we shouldn't like, but it's one of the catchiest things we've heard in a while. That's what "No Flex Zone" is for me, as I'm sure it is for a lot of you. The song is mad catchy and I find myself singing it all the time. Well Rae Sremmurd stuck to the script and remixed their hit to make it even hotter. Check out the remix featuring verses from Nicki Minaj and Pusha T above. Enjoy.
