On Monday (Nov. 9), after four months of talks, the Virginia native was appointed president of G.O.O.D. Music, according to Billboard. The wheels for the move were set in motion, like most things on earth, with a call from Kanye.
"'Ye had called me and he was like, 'Tell me something. What do you think about being the president of G.O.O.D. Music?' Push explained.
"And I was like, 'Well, what are the things that you’re looking for?' And he was basically just like, to manicure the label, make it profitable and be very business-oriented about it going forward in a manicured type of way."
King Push was up for the task and now, almost half-a-year later, he's assuming the reigns. What that means, he says, is not only that he'll be focusing on helping G.O.O.D. Music and its artists -- from Big Sean to Teyana Taylor to Cyhi the Prynce -- but that Yeezy will have more of a chance to plant his musical seeds.
"I think we’ll be getting the best out of him, executive producing projects that come from the label from here on out because he gets to really hone in as a producer," Push said. "I’ll take care of all the logistics, the rallying of the troops, and so on and so forth. He don’t gotta be producer, A&R, rapper and everything. We’re all here to help and facilitate. I’m definitely stepping up for the job."
As for the new prez's solo work, his long-awaited sophomore album, King Push, still has no firm release date. But just over two years removed from the release of his predecessor, it sounds like that project is continuing to take shape.
"My album is just a whole other thing in all honesty," he said, adding that he'll drop "offerings" from it before the year is out. "F’real, what you’re gonna get from this King Push album is something people probably haven’t heard in the past 18 years. I’m just putting it together, aiming for classic material."
Until then, though, we've got his "R.I.C.O." remix, which dropped over the weekend.
