G.O.O.D. Music is now officially a subsidiary of Def Jam. Many future G.O.O.D. Music releases will see release under Def Jam's name, including Big Sean's Finally Famous, which is being released today.

Some of the G.O.O.D. Music artists will release their music via Def Jam from here on out, while others will not be making the move to Def Jam. Pusha-T, CyHi da Prince, and D'banj will be welcomed into the Def Jam family. Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson and John Legend are not participating in the transfer, according to a representative from Def Jam. However, Kanye still plans to keep releasing his music through Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam.
