Mos Def Signed to G.O.O.D Music?

Mos Def, and Charlie Wilson, seem to be the latest additions to the Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music roster, along with Pusha T and CyHi Da Prynce who were picked up not too long ago either. Mos is featured alongside the rest of “Monsters Inc.” (pictured above) in the lastest issue of XXL.

Just as Kanye returned to his roots to scoop up Common, he recently recruited his buddy Brooklyn rapper/singer/actor Mos Def into the GOOD Music fold. Long regarded as a formidable talent by underground devotees and mainstream fans alike, Mos appeared on “Two Words” (from Kanye’s 2005 The College Dropout) and “Drunk and Hot Girls” (from KW’s 2007 Graduation). Since his 1999 solo debut, Black on Both Sides, Mos has increasingly been pushed — whether by generational choices or self-exile — to the fringes of indie, alternative hip hop. Maybe it will take Kanye to reign him in.

I wonder how Dame feels about the deal.

    And I’m sure Mos don’t want any part of whatever beef Dame has with anyone. That aint his lane really.

    I could see Ye helping Mos craft a classic. Especially since Ye is already getting at Madlib for beats. A Mos album with Ye & Madlib would be crazy.

    G.O.O.D. Music seems to be more of a “clique” in theory than a label. They operate out the same studios and collab it seems. To my understanding:
    Cudi is Universal/Motown
    Common Geffen/Interscope/Universal
    Big Sean Def Jam/Universal
    Pusha T Sony
    John Legend Sony

    Mos’ The Ecstatic was released on Downtown music which is a division of Universal. Mos is more than likely obligated to his Downtown deal, which is why he didn’t get clearance to appear on 24 Hour Karate School.
