Mos Def, and Charlie Wilson, seem to be the latest additions to the Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music roster, along with Pusha T and CyHi Da Prynce who were picked up not too long ago either. Mos is featured alongside the rest of “Monsters Inc.” (pictured above) in the lastest issue of XXL.
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. Long regarded as a formidable talent by underground devotees and mainstream fans alike, Mos appeared on “Two Words” (from Kanye’s 2005 The College Dropout) and “Drunk and Hot Girls” (from KW’s 2007 Graduation). Since his 1999 solo debut, Black on Both Sides, Mos has increasingly been pushed — whether by generational choices or self-exile — to the fringes of indie, alternative hip hop. Maybe it will take Kanye to reign him in.
I wonder how Dame feels about the deal...
