So I’m only just now coming across news that Kanye West has signed Nigerian artists, D’Banj, Mo Hits and Don Jazzy to his G.O.O.D Music Label. Now I’m not even gonna front like I’m REALLY familiar with any of these artists (other than Kanye West lol) but still I find this news interesting :D It’s nice to see people within the music industry appreciating music from different cultures.
D’Banj, Mo Hits and Don Jazzy will be joining the likes of Kanye West, John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, Big Sean and more who are already under the label.
Watch the video above to see Kanye West announce the news.
News is that this is the leading single for J. Cole’s upcoming debut album. On what took so long for it’s release Cole revealed:
“I sampled a Kanye West song, but the problem is, [there’s] like five writers that he gave credit to. When you’re clearing a sample, every writer has to be contacted. So you have to contact each and every one of them and get it cleared, so it’s tougher than the average one. As soon as it clears, we’re puttin’ it out.”
Debut single’s here now… Could this mean the album is nearing its release?
'Let go and let God – don’t be lazy – but let go and trust that you’re good'.

Just thought I’d quote this because it rings true to me. I came across these words after reading a bit of an interview that was recently conducted with actor, Laz Alonso, via Bitchie Life magazine. The full interview can be read here.
