Kanye West Signs Mos Def to His G.O.O.D. Music Label
Published Sep 27, 2010As if rolling out a steady stream of new music and high-profile collaborations weren't enough, Kanye West is quickly building an impressive roster for his G.O.O.D. Music record label. Two weeks ago, we reported that he had signed the Clipse's Pusha T. Now, he's announced the newest addition to his lineup: Mos Def.
Consequence of Sound points to an article by XXL, which lists Mos Def as the label's latest signing. It reads: "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."
Mos Def has appeared on Kanye albums in the past and most recently, alongside Raekwon on "Lord Lord Lord," from 'Ye's G.O.O.D. Fridays campaign. His last LP, The Ecstatic, was released in 2009, and so far there's no word on when Mos Def's next album will drop.
