On G.O.O.D. Music folding and signing with EMI…
We were all young guys with visions, and we all just wanted to make it. Kanye had a label situation—G.O.O.D. Music—a deal with Sony, which was going to manufacture the label and make everything happen. But at the time we really didn’t have a structure. And within a year, the label dissolved, Sony got rid of their whole urban department in 2006. That was the end of G.O.O.D. Music, as far as a label. But the family, we’re still thriving, we’re still persistent. We always shouted it out. But now, I’ve evolved I learned a lot from that situation, from Kanye. I never stopped my grind, and I saw results from what the people had to say on the Internet and this and that. I was offered maybe five or six [deals] between the four years. But I wanted to make sure I made the right decision and I wanted to handle it with a player like precision. I was able to take what I learned [from G.O.O.D. Music] without ever putting an album out in my life and land a distribution deal with EMI. What I’ve done with them has never been done before. I can take this label situation and really make it work and open up doors for others. There’s strength in numbers, strength in the people, and there’s also strength in this pimpin’. Chuuch!
