Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music album is getting some added star power. The forthcoming compilation is expected to feature a cadre of top rappers and producers including Kanye protege Big Sean. “We’re gonna do the G.O.O.D. Music album first; we been working on that,” Sean told MTV News a few weeks ago on the set of Wale’s “Slight Work” video in California. “So, me, Kanye, Cudi, CyHi, John Legend, Common, Pusha T, everybody on G.O.O.D., Mr Hudson: We’re all working on a new project; it’s almost done. We’re going to London to finish it up…” Now Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean and Roc Nation rapper Jay Electronica have joined in the mega effort across the pond.
Rapper Pusha T unveiled these new additions on Twitter yesterday, sharing some insider knowledge he gleaned during recordings: “Learned in London: NOBU is always 500+ for dinner, @HitBoy_SC is the future, I’m a car hoe, Frank Ocean already won, and G.O.O.D can’t lose!” Singer/songwriter Marsha Ambrosius added on by tweeting, “In the studio with Frank Ocean, Big Sean, Pusha T, Manny Fresh Kanye West is on the way!!! I’m having fun today thx Che ,” and then, “And @JayElectronica just arrived fun times in the studio – Kanye sessions Day 2 .”
The G.O.O.D. Music album is slated for a Spring release.
