The G.O.O.D. Music crew — Kanye West, Big Sean, John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, 2 Chainz and Q-Tip — takes the cover of Complex Magazine’s August/September issue. Inside the magazine, available on newsstands August 7, the collective — minus Kanye, who maintained his “no press” policy — discussed for the first time their first group album, Cruel Summer, their creative chemistry and more.
Check out excerpts from the cover story below.
After years of underground success, Twista broke into the mainstream with 2004’s Kamikaze. For the album’s lead single, Twista enlisted Jamie Foxx and Kanye West for an ode to classic soul artists on the aptly titled “Slow Jamz.” Produced by Kanye West, “Slow Jamz” topped Billboard’s Hot 100 for one week on February 10, 2004, becoming the first number one single for all three artists.
Did You Know? “Slow Jamz” was for a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2005.
