During MTV reporter Sway’s Video Music Award’s post-show, Pusha-T confirmed his signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label:
“I’m definitely signed with G.O.O.D. Music. I’m definitely doing my solo project through G.O.O.D. Music. The Clipse is definitely coming with a new Clipse project. We’re definitely coming with a new Re-Up Gang project, shout out to Ab-Liva. The family is still here, man. It’s just all about G.O.O.D. Music, straight up. The whole family.”“
Terrence was born in The Bronx, New York City but soon relocated to Norfolk, Virginia. In 1992 Terrence and his brother Gene formed the duo now internationally known as Clipse. With help from Pharell Williams the group eventually signed to Elektra Records in 1997 and released one album under the label. After three more albums under various record labels both Malice and Pusha announced that they were taking time off from Clipse to focus on their own respected solo projects.
Following his signing to GOOD Music, Pusha has been featured on a number of fellow label mate’s projects such as Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and many GOOD Music Friday tracks.
