You may remember earlier in the year when Kanye West and G.O.O.D Music remixed Chief Keef’s breakout single “I Don’t Like,” it was the ultimate co-sign for the young Chicago MC, even though Chief Keef doesn’t feel like Kanye West helped the record at all.
G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T says he’s the reason Kanye added some vocals to “I Don’t Like”.
“First of all, I am solely the reason that there’s a Chief Keef remix on [Cruel Summer],” Pusha insisted. I saw him on WorldStar. I never click Worldstar rappers but the picture for some reason drew me. It was for ’3 Hunna.’ So I clicked on it and I called [manager Steven] Victor and I said ‘Victor I want to sign this kid. Go online and check this kid out. It’s authentic.’”
Pusha T was sold on Chief Keef because of his originality and authenticity. “That’s what I like about him. This isn’t Nas at 16.”
Pusha T’s manager Steven Victor didn’t believe Pusha T was serious and thus the deal never took place. Keef ultimately signed to Interscope Records.
So your telling me Chief Keef could have been under the G.O.O.D Music roster? Nah I don’t think that would have worked out.
