In October, Kanye West announced that the G.O.O.D. Music roster was working on an upcoming compilation album, slated for Spring 2012. Seems like the record has found even more star power. Within the past week, Pusha-T has revealed that he’s been hard at work on the G.O.O.D. Music album with Frank Ocean and Jay Electronica. The two newcomers joined Pusha, Kanye, Mannie Fresh, and Big Sean in London to work on the highly anticipated record.
Pusha-T first unveiled the new collaborators on Twitter early this morning (Jan. 17), tweeting, “Learned in London: NOBU is always 500+ for dinner, @HitBoy_SC is the future, I’m a car hoe, Frank Ocean already won, and G.O.O.D can’t lose!” He also confirmed Ocean and Electronica’s presence on his website.
Singer/songwriter Marsha Ambrosius (of former Floetry fame) also shared her excitement, tweeting, “In the studio with Frank Ocean, Big Sean, Pusha T, Manny Fresh 🙂 Kanye West is on the way!!! I’m having fun today 🙂 thx Che ;),” and later, “And @JayElectronica just arrived 🙂 fun times in the studio – Kanye sessions Day 2 :).”
Earlier this month, Mannie Fresh spoke with Billboard about working with West, admitting, “Kanye inspires me through his work ethic and his approach. He’ll tell you his whole warm-up speech: ‘When we’re doing a song, we’re not doing a song just to be doing a song. We’re striving for a No. 1 song.'”
