The G.O.O.D. Music Takeover: Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz Featured In Dazed Digital

G.O.O.D. Music recording artists Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz has a spread and interview in the latest issues of Dazed Digital. Dressed in designer clothes and gold chainz, these dope rappers gave a smooth interview. Cruel Summer arrives August 7. Below are some pics and excerpts:

I realized the value of gold has gone up so I’ve been wearing a lot of gold for the last year and a half,” said 2 Chainz. He points to a luxurious mountain of gold and red that wraps around his wrist. He added, “This vintage Versace is so unique because it looks like a chain wrap but it’s a bracelet. And it has this grenade pin. I really enjoy my Chanel cuff, I have a couple of these. I have a lot of Emilio Pucci, Chanel, Versace,Gucci pieces, and some Christian Lacroix, who actually taught Versace how to make jewelry.”

I have a bunch of runway pieces,” he continues, going back to his gold collection. “Unique jewellery pieces that are one of one. I’ll bump into another rapper who doesn’t have the same pieces that I have. It’s about separating yourself.”

“Some days I’ll be in the studio with Dream and we don’t do nothing but listen to old Tupac. Or listen to old B.I.G. We’ll lose nine hours doing that,” said Pusha T. “And by the time the end of that night comes, we know exactly where to dial in. Dream is genius at dialing into an emotion and creating that emotion. But when I’m working with Kanye, he’ll have a whole vision in his head, and he’ll expound on it until I find a place where I can write to it. He’ll give that part to me, and I push it back to him when I’m done with it. So there’s the element of surprise with Ye, because I don’t even know where the record will go from there. He gives me the rest of the movie.”

New Interview: CyHi The Prynce Talks About ‘Ivy League Club’, G.O.O.D. Music, His Debut Album & More With Billboard

Almost two years ago, Atlanta native CyHi The Prynce signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. He appeared on Kanye’s “So Appalled” and released his first mixtape as a G.O.O.D. Music artist, Royal Flush in 2010, followed by Royal Flush 2 and Jack Of All Trades in 2011. CyHi recently dropped his latest mixtape Ivy League Club and he had a mixtape listening party in Atlanta this past Tuesday (July17) to support the disc. After the party, CyHi chatted with Billboard about the disc, G.O.O.D. Music, his debut album and more. Below are some excerpts:

Why name your latest “Ivy League Club”?
It’s really an extension from my younger days. [Ivy League Club] was my code for the marijuana trade. I was looked at as the weed man earlier in my teens. It was a clever way of me saying that without saying that. I feel like I grew up around a lot of intelligent young men and I thought me and my friends were pretty intelligent to be from where we’re from. Some of us got caught up but a lot of us didn’t. We’re blessed. I feel like that was the most resemblance of myself and my upbringing.

In a month, you’ll have been with G.O.O.D Music for two years. What are your thoughts on your own position within the label?
A lot of people don’t know my role. A lot of people don’t know that Big Sean was signed five years before he actually broke. But what we do is build on foundation organically because it doesn’t matter if [Kanye] is on our song or not, we can still promote our music. I can still put out a mixtape and everybody receives it. That’s the foundation I built so… And at the same time I do a lot of creative work that people don’t see. I play my position, then when it’s time for me to do what I do, then I do.

So you’re getting work in, in between the mixtapes…
Yeah, absolutely. I’ve been working on the G.O.O.D. Music album. We’re working on ‘Ye’s new album. Working on mine, “The Hardway Musical,” for the first quarter.

How much input would you say Kanye has had on your debut album, “The Hardway Musical”?
Kanye has a very intricate part of it. Yes. To observe him is to learn. You can kind of see how he does it and you’d better be taking notes. I gathered a lot of different ideas, different things, and different methods from him to incorporate in my project.

Making Moves Like The Majors: Kanye West Joins LeBron James & Will Smith Over At Creative Artists Agency

Rapper Kanye West has moved to the majors! The multi-platinum-selling artist joins LeBron James and Will Smith over at Hollywood’s leading talent agency CAA (Creative Artists Agency).

According to Hollywood Reporter, “Kanye West and his longtime agent Cara Lewis have been reunited at CAA. The superstar rapper had been previously represented by Lewis at William Morris Endeavor, where her client roster also included EminemRihannaCee Lo GreenCommonKid Cudi,Lupe FiascoNasNe-YoPitbullB.o.B. and Soulja Boy. She joined CAA in January of 2012. In the days and weeks following her WME departure, it was debated whether West would follow.”

His arrival is a significant boost to CAA’s already thriving music department (headed by Rob Light) in no small part because West’s most recent tour, Watch the Throne, with label-mate Jay-Z, has gone down in history as the highest grossing hip-hop trek of all time,” added Hollywood Reporter.
