Big Sean Says Kid Cudi Still Part Of G.O.O.D. Music Family

Big Sean says that G.O.O.D. Music "adds a different quality" to music.

Even though G.O.O.D. Music has been going through a transition period recently due to the departure of several key artists, Big Sean says acts no longer on the imprint remain part of the family.

The Michigan rapper cites former G.O.O.D. Music artist Kid Cudi, who appears on the track “First Chain” from Big Sean’s forthcoming Hall Of Fame album, as an example.

Kid Cudi did his verse to the song after he left G.O.O.D. Music,” Big Sean says during an interview with Karen Civil. “And at the end of it, he say, ‘G.O.O.D. Music forever, nigga.’ And he was like, ‘What? You know what it is.’ Basically, we a fam, you know what I’m sayin’, and sometimes business shit doesn’t work out and things get tangled up, but through it all, we all brothers and we all just trying to push culture forward and make Rap better and quality.”

Kid Cudi left G.O.O.D. Music in April and producer Hit-Boy announced in June that he was no longer part of Kanye West’s label. The imprint doesn’t have a release date for Pusha T’s forthcoming My Name Is My Name LP and West’s Yeezus was released to mixed reviews in June.

Nonetheless, Big Sean, whose LP is slated for an August 27 release, says that his label brings something distinctive to music.

“Just like how MMG adds a certain quality,” he says, “just like Young Money adds a certain quality, G.O.O.D. Music adds a different quality.”

Athough Big Sean's recently released song “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica is not slated to appear on Hall Of Fame, the collection is reported to include Lil Wayne and Jhene Aiko on “Beware,” Nicki Minaj and Juicy J on “Milf” and Miguel on “Ashley.”

Even though Big Sean is now dating Naya Rivera and no longer dating Ashley Marie, who inspired “Ashley,” he said to Karen Civil that he didn’t see a reason to remove the song from Hall Of Fame.

    anyone notice how played up in the media kanye was on his last several records- usually you see it and hear it everywhere and every one won't stop talking about it. Now he has made a real great artistic record again but it is so truthful and harsh and he has pissed off the higher ups and the corporations so they cut his ties. he's better off without all the mainstream publicity anyway he is so much of an artist that he can do it on his own. his true fans with brains will know the deal fuck all the idiots anyway just been think it felt like a good place to vent yeezus is hardcore

      You say that like it's a bad thing. Yes, this album was not as good as his last one but the fact that he's been consistently putting out great albums should more than make up for Yeezus. Even then Yeezus was not a bad album. I hear people complaining about Jay's album, because it's the same shit over and over again. Then I hear the same people complain about Yeezus because it's different.

      I'm not impressed, alot of the casual hip hop listeners that don't know what to go buy will end up getting kanye. The average person will buy his music cuz he is a household name.

      "Wolf of Wall Street", the new Martin Scorcese movie has Black Skinhead playing during the trailers. He purposely made songs that wouldn't be radio friendly, he said it at his listening session in NY before Yeezus came out. Considering how much he doesn't give a shit about marketing/singles, I'm impressed by how much it has sold so far.

      Its just weird that he would drop an album like that and put his new born baby in danger. Or maybe its just some elaborate scheme to keep relevant, and he's on some island somewhere eating a ham sandwich getting a 8lowjob and not giving a fuq.

    Big sean is lying. Kid Cudi is out of aptly named GOOD music because Kayne tried to rape Cudi. Cudi is still wack but at least he knew when to get the fuck out. Yeezus got panned by the majority of public and the only reason why it got good reviews from critics is because West paid them to praise him. Yeezus is bombing at the sales as well.

    Cudi joined W.A.C.K. Music I heard even though he has always been an unofficial member.

    Yeezus didn't get released to mixed reviews critically. I love how stupid that paragraph is, Hitboy said that he fulfilled his contract, he was signed on to do a number of beats, he was signed to Very G.O.O.D. Beats not to G.O.O.D. Music.

  • Anonymous Those aren't mixed reviews.

      I think what DX meant was that it got a mixed reception from the public. DX themselves gave it a 4.5 if I remember correctly
