    GOOD music is falling apart. Kanye is moving to Paris cause the USA is too hot for him. Big Sean, thier most marketable artist, rolls with Wayne and Birdman. Common and Kudi are off the label. Pusha T can't get a buzz or a release date. John Legend can't get a beat from Kanye. Q-Tip doesn't move units.

      dentaldamboy, everything you say is bullshit lies.

    • LAAK

      Honestly, I don't think GOOD Music is doing big deals with most of their artists, it's mostly joint ventures. Cudi had a small deal he's mainly with Republic Records, John Legend is mainly with Columbia and Common is with Geffen.

      You're a fucking idiot. Everything you say is bullshit. Kanye is a superstar who never fell off, but got bigger and better. He's one of the best rappers of this generation, better than wack ass Wayne. Kanye continues releasing classics while Wayne is falling off. Wayne can't afford to be on SNL.
