Pusha T declares his separation from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label

Pusha T has distanced himself from Kanye West’s record label, G.O.O.D. Music.

Pusha (real name Terrence Thornton), who made the revelation this week, was appointed president of G.O.O.D. Music in 2015, taking over from Che Pope. 

According to NME, active with the former Def Jam imprint for the past seven years, Thornton was its longest-serving president (all three of his predecessors had stuck with the role for three years). 

Citing an new interview with XXL, the outlet said he’s made it clear that he’s no longer associated with any projects or organisations tied to West.

Asked by the publication if he’d kept his post at G.O.O.D. amid West’s current string of controversies – the bulk of which involving his antisemitic comments and Nazi apologism – Thornton replied bluntly: “No. No No, I’m not.” He went on to clarify that he has “a 50/50 venture with Def Jam” for both his personal endeavours as an artiste and those of his own label imprint, the Heir Wave Music Group (which he founded in 2020).
