Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music Group was officially signed to an exclusive long-term worldwide label agreement with Island Def Jam Music Group. Previously they had just been considered “family and like a production company” and “you get a distribution deal and if you’re a G.O.O.D Music artist, then you come out on G.O.O.D Music and the distribution deal.” Check out more details and quotes after the jump.
The first release under the new deal will be Big Sean’s Finally Famous set to drop tomorrow. Here’s a quote from an IDJ exec:
“G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam,” said Barry Weiss, Chairman and COO of Universal Motown Republic Group and IDJMG. “As a recording artist and a producer over the past eight years, there is no one who has made a greater impression on the game than Kanye. We look forward to working closely with the new and established artists that he will be bringing to G.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean.”
