Music mogul Kanye West just inked a deal with Def Jam for his label G.O.O.D. Music. Yeezy recently signed an exclusive worldwide deal with Island Def Jam Music Group. Detroit native Big Sean debut album Finally Famous: The Album, will be the first release under the new deal and Sean will serve as the flagship artist. Big Sean’s song “My Last” is #1 on the Billboard Rap Songs chart, and #4 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

G.O.O.D. Music recording artists Cyhi The Prynce, Pusha T, and Nigerian artist D’banj are slated to release albums under Def Jam.

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.”

Kanye West is still a solo artist signed to Def Jam. “Kanye’s genius has been proven time and time again on records and onstage,” said Steve Bartels, President and COO of IDJMG. “He not only pours it out for himself, but he has made the difference with his presence on innumerable projects with other artists who are indebted to him.  Kanye is an integral core member of the IDJ family, and G.O.O.D. Music continues his unselfish tradition of bringing along great new artists to the forefront.”
