“G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam,” said Island Def Jam’s current CEO, Barry Weiss, who left Jive to take over as CEO at the label in March of 2007.

“As a recording artist and a producer over the past eight years, there is no one who has made a greater impression on the game than Kanye,” Weiss said. “We look forward to working closely with the new and established artists that he will be bringing to G.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean.”

“Kanye’s genius has been proven time and time again on records and onstage,” said Bartels of the 14-time Grammy Award winning rapper/producer. “He not only pours it out for himself, but he has made the difference with his presence on innumerable projects with other artists who are indebted to him.
