Hoooly shit, Kanye just nabbed another stellar hip-hop force to add to the already powerful GOOD Music roster. With the edition of Mos Def, Getting Out Our Dreams Music looks something like this:
  • Kanye West
  • Mos Def
  • Common
  • John Legend
  • Kid Cudi
  • Big Sean
  • GLC
  • Pusha T
and more.

Catch more info on the deal along with Kanye's cover story in the next issue of XXL.

MTV had this to say about the signing and Mos x Kanye in general...

The rapper/actor and Kanye first collaborated on the Chicago MC's College Dropout, for "Two Words," and then again on "Drunk and Hot Girls" from Graduation. On "Lord, Lord, Lord," Mos Def opens the slow-moving track.

"Cool ruler standing still, sweatin' through the shade," Mos says. "He knew those lights only grew bright to fade/ Dead-wrong pageantry, lottery and games/ Sleight of hand provided by extravagant and fake."

With the signing of Mos Def, West continues his movement, pulling in MCs — often with a devoted following outside the mainstream — who come ready to break down creative barriers.
