Pusha T - Long before G.O.O.D. Music was a thought in Kanye's mind, Pusha T was signed to Pharrell's Star Trek label and one-half of the hip hop duo The Clipse with his brother No Malice. Now, a decade later, Pusha T is wreaking havoc through the bars that he spits. G.O.O.D. Music is lucky to have him.  Pusha T is coming through 106 tonight to celebrate the release of his new mixtape Wrath Of Caine. Don't miss a minute at 10P/9C!

Kanye West - Kayne West is known for being one of the best rappers out, producer extraordinaire, and last, but certainly not least, G.O.O.D. Music's head honcho.  Founded in 2004, G.O.O.D. (Getting Out Our Dreams) Music has built quite the reputation for itself with amazing artists and amazing production.   (Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage)

John Legend vs. Anthony Stokes - Singer Anthony Stokes filed a lawsuit claiming Legend stole a song from him after he handed his demo to him after a concert. Stokes says Legend promised to listen to the song but never got back to him. Then in 2006 he heard a song titled "Maxine's Interlude," which sounded a bit too close to his "Where Are You Now?" Stokes sought an unspecified amount of damages.(Photo: Scott Gries/PictureGroup)

John Legend - John Legend is one soulful crooner that you probably wouldn't pair with Kanye West. Despite the fact that this pair seems like an odd couple, John Legend was the first artist that Kanye signed to G.O.O.D. Music in 2004.  John has released four albums under G.O.O.D. Music (Get Lifted, Once Again, Evolver, Wake Up!), gone on to co-sign Estelle, and be one superstar who keeps philanthropy first. His looks and talent don't hurt either!

"Out on Bond" featuring Vince Staples - Common and Vince Staples speak on the constant revolving prison door and the pressures to play in the game no matter the consequences. Vince breaks it down with bars like, "Your mind gone, life don't seem much bigger than your time zone/Broke as the rich get richer/Blunt burnt lips and a worn out liver/That's everyday livin', guns everywhere chillin'."(Photo: Cindy Ord/Getty Images)

Common - Before Common was an actor and an author he was a certified emcee. He took his career to the next level when he signed with G.O.O.D. Music in 2004. The Chi-town connection between Common and Kanye is so real that it translated into the music on Common's album Be, which Kanye produced the majority of. Don't forget that that album was nominated for four Grammys.  (Photo: Cindy Ord/Getty Images)

Malik Yusef - Another Chicagoan on Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music roster is the spoken word poet Malik Yusef. He grew up as one of Common's friends and has become well known in the spoken word community. He has been seen in campaigns for Sprite, Verizon, Nike and more.  (Photo: Facebook)

Big Sean, Hall of Fame - Big Sean broke through with his 2011 debut album, Finally Famous, but on G.O.O.D. Music?s Cruel Summer he really came into his own, contributing some of the album?s most memorable lines on ?Mercy? and ?Clique.? We?re looking for him to keep maturing on his new album, with help from contributors including Nas, No I.D. and Internz.  (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

Big Sean - Big Sean hails from Detroit and makes sure that he tells you every chance that he has. Big Sean signed to G.O.O.D. Music in 2007 after rapping a few bars for Kanye in the lobby of a Detroit radio station. Kanye signed him soon after and the rest is history. (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

"The Flight of the Moon Man"  - Kid Cudi ends the album with another rather pointless instrumental digression, adding even more minutes to the already hefty 18 tracks. Ironically though, the production here is more dynamic and interesting than many of the more central songs. Cudi's making a point here?"I produced this album myself!"?but really he makes us miss the presence of Kanye West, Emile, Ratatat and his other former beatmaking collaborators.  (Photo: Andrew H.

Kid Cudi - From the Bape store to the top. That sounds like a dream, and it was for Kid Cudi, who went from being a Bape store employee to being signed to G.O.O.D. Music and had the mega-hit "Day 'n' Nite" race up the charts. Cudi's rhymes and creativity have gotten him far, but so have his good looks. Remember him from Solange's "T.O.N.Y." music video and his portrayal of Domingo Brown on the short-lived HBO series How to Make It in America? The boy is fine! (Photo: Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images)

Mr. Hudson - After signing to label in 2008, British electro-pop singer Mr. Hudson released his album Straight No Chaser in 2009. He?s also appeared on songs by Kanye (?Paranoid?), Jay-Z (?Forever Young?) and The Throne (?Why I Love You?). (Photo: Daniel Boczarski/Getty Images for VEVO)

Yasiin Bey  - Yasiin Bey is the artist formally known as Mos Def to the masses. Long before signing to G.O.O.D. Music, Yasiin Bey had a career that'll be talked about in hip hop history books. He worked with De La Soul, was one half of Black Star with Talib Kweli, and has had many acting roles that have been significant to his career.   (Photo: Amanda Edwards/PictureGroup)

D'banj - Kanye decided to take G.O.O.D. Music international again when he signed D'banj to the label.   D'banj is a Nigerian singer-songwriter that's been making waves on the international music scene for years and is slowly but surely creeping his way into the U.S. market. He signed with Kanye in 2011. Since then he's released his wilding popular international dance anthem "Oliver Twist." It's only a matter of time until D'banj is a household name.  (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)

Q-Tip - Q-Tip DJs, produces and raps, so it's no wonder that Kanye recently signed the legendary emcee to G.O.O.D. Music. He was a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest and has been listed by many as one of the best lyricists and hip hop producers of all time. Although he's slowed down on the mic, he frequently DJs.  (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for John Varvatos)
