Pusha T Leaves Kanye West GOOD Music Label
Pusha T, the 44 year old rap artist and coke bar connoisseur, is fully in the swing of promo for his upcoming album. Throughout the back half of January, Push has been seen at events during Paris' Fashion Week 2022. In that time, he released a handful of snippets, promotional images, and had a song featured at NIGO's Kenzo F/W22 fashion show. The slight glimpses into what Push has been cooking up was enough to get fans excited for what he's releasing next.
His next project, entitled It's Not Dry Yet (INDY), is slated to release in the coming month. The highly anticipated album will serve as Pusha T's fourth studio album as a solo artist (formerly a member of the dynamic rap duo Clipse). His most recent body of work, 2018's Daytona, brought more of his signature drug trafficking talk to the forefront over Kanye West exclusive composition. The album grabbed hold of listeners, growing Push's fanbase and the hype for anything new he works on.
On the heels of his massive momentum and some newfound reverence, Pusha T crafted a music business entity called Heir Wave Music Group. With this, it seemed inevitable that Push would go on to grow his own solo endeavors. These reasonable assumptions were made a reality on Jan 27th, 2022, when Pusha T revealed that his "brother" Kanye West amicably released him from his GOOD Music contract:

Updated - The portions of the contract shared by Pusha T didn’t make it clear what the deal means exactly, but that didn’t slow down the rumor mill, with theories suggesting the Virginia native had departed G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam or regained ownership of his masters.
In response to the speculation, Pusha T’s manager Steven Victor spoke with Complex and clarified King Push is still signed to G.O.O.D. Music, but his upcoming album will fulfill his Def Jam contract.
“[He’s still with] G.O.O.D. Music, he’s just not signed to Def Jam anymore,” Victor confirmed. “This is his last album on Def Jam.”
According to Victor, Pusha isn’t ruling out a Def Jam reunion in the future, but his loyalty remains to Kanye West.
“I mean, we might re-sign with Def Jam, I’m just saying he fulfilled his contract obligation,” he said. “He might re-sign with Def Jam, it’s just the whole point of it is that he’s still with Kanye regardless to wherever he ends up with his next projects. It will be with Kanye.”
