Underground rapper and actor Mos Def has inked a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music imprint.  This is the latest in many big time signings for Kanye’s super stable of artists.  Mr. West recently signed one half of the group Clipse Pusha T.  This latest signing has many calling the G.O.O.D. music group the Miami Heat of the music industry.  The current stable of G.O.O.D. music artists  currently consists of Kanye West, John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Mos Def, Consequence,  and r&b legend Charlie Wilson just to name a few.

For those who are unfamiliar with  G.O.O.D. Music its not  a record label its essentially a production group which artists belong.  The group  helps each  artist find their own distribution deal.  For example, Kanye owns and belongs to G.O.O.D music but his distribution comes through Def Jam whereas Kid Cudi is a G.O.O.D. music artists but his distribution is through Universal Motown.

One thing is for certain this is G.O.O.D. news to hip hop fans that look forward to hearing Mos Def’s lyrics and vocals over Kanye’s classic production.  I know personally I would love to see a G.O.O.D. Music group album along the lines of Young Money’s  “We Are Young Money”.  I guess one can dream…LOL…
