Kanye West and Pusha T add more to the label’s ever-expanding roster.
After a multi-night run of the Saint Pablo Tour at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West held a G.O.O.D. Music pop-up show in New York City where he and label president Pusha T shared some news. According to video of Kanye West caught by Genius, Tyga is now signed to the label, while XXL has confirmed that King Push announced that Migos is managed by G.O.O.D. Music.

Both Tyga and Migos have had tumultuous label relations in their past. Migos allegedly split from their label Quality Control after the release of their album Young Rich Nation, which would have fulfilled their three album contract. Quality Control works in partnership with Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment for promotion and distribution, but neither have confirmed Migos’s official departure.
Tyga, on the other hand, is a former member of Young Money. After shake-ups at Cash Money between Lil Wayne and label head honcho Birdman in 2014, Tyga alleged that his completed fourth full-length The Gold Album: The 18th Dynasty was left in limbo. He then released it on his own via Spotify the following year. There is no official confirmation that Tyga has signed with G.O.O.D. Music at this time, but he is romantically tied to Kylie Jenner, West’s youngest sister-in-law.
(And if this is true, just like West’s relationship with Kim Kardashian increased her profile among previous naysayers, the odds are in Tyga’s favor that it’ll happen to him, too.)
