Pusha T has revealed that he resigned as the president of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label in a new interview with XXL on Monday (December 19), seven years after assuming the position in 2015.
When asked directly if he’s still the president of G.O.O.D. Music, the “It’s Almost Dry” rapper simply replied, “No. No, I’m not.” When asked to further clarify, he added, “I’m not tied with G.O.O.D. Music anymore in any way.”
While it’s been reported that G.O.O.D. Music is no longer a part of Def Jam Recordings, Pusha went on to clarify that he still has a separate deal with Def Jam. West and G.O.O.D. Music’s partnership with the powerhouse label ended back in 2021, prior to any of his recent antisemitism and hate speech.
“I have a 50/50 venture with Def Jam,” Pusha said. “For my own music and for my label.”
The last time Pusha and West spoke, was when he was on tour.
“He’s not speaking to me now,” Pusha T said of West. “If you ain’t with it, you ain’t down. And I ain’t with it. I’m not budging on that. I’m not with it. I heard about this new stuff [on InfoWars]. I don’t know. It’s something that just sort of tells me he’s not well, at the same time. I will say that. It’s going to places where it’s no way to move around it.”
“We started working together in 2010,” Pusha said of his dynamic with West. “So, my relationship with him has never been like everybody else’s in regard to the filter. I never had a filter with him. I’ve always spoke my mind.”
“People gotta remember, too. This isn’t new for me, when it comes to disagreeing with him politically and things like that.”
Pusha’s latest album “It’s Almost Dry” was released via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam in April, making it one of the final projects to drop under the venture.
