Ad Nauseum - G.O.O.D. Music Edition

It may seem as though I'm only following Kanye West and his day to day activities over here, but that's only because him and the rest of G.O.O.D. Music are killing it.

First came the resurrection of Child Rebel Soldier, the supergroup that includes Kanye, Pharrell & Lupe Fiasco. Although the track is 2 years old with references to R. Kelly and Ghostface's "Wallabee", it was unreleased until Mr. West dropped it as part of his G.O.O.D. Friday series. After hearing it, you have to wonder how many other classics this man has just sitting in the studio. You can grab it for FREE on Kanye's blog, including every other release in the series.

Then, he dropped by the 2010 BET Awards and decided the crew was going to drop a cypher that I'm still rewinding to catch all the lines. Not sure if Kanye's line "Too many Urkels on your team, that's why your wins low" or Cyhi da Prynce's "I'm impeccable, they put me on a pedestal, and if you bite me, it's good like a vegetable" is the killer. But, damn if Big Sean didn't just rip his entire verse!

It looks as though Cyhi da Prynce is just getting started because he popped up on the new A-Trak single, "Ray Ban Vision" from the forthcoming Fool's Gold Volume 1. I wish A-Trak would produce more hip-hop, he always finds a beat that is just a step outside the normal crap you hear. Get him and Lil' Wayne in a room and you would have an instant classic.

Oh, and in case you haven't heard, Mos Def just signed to G.O.O.D. Music. Whoa.
