Pusha T has been appointed president of G.O.O.D. Music.
According to Billboard, label founder Kanye West gave the rapper the good news during a phone call. “I was flying home and I had just got into my car at the airport,” explained Pusha. “‘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.”
As president, Pusha will oversee the label’s roster including Big Sean, Q-Tip, Teyana Taylor and Kacy Hill. “Just be on the lookout for everything from G.O.O.D. Music and we just about to really take over and show we’re a force in the music game and this culture in general. It’s an artistic bunch over here,” Pusha said.
The rapper also plans continue his solo career with his own King Push album, slated to arrive later this year. “What you’re gonna get from this King Push album is something people probably haven’t heard in the past 18 years,” he said. “I’m just putting it together, aiming for classic material.”
