Written by Rosario Harper
Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music compilation album guest list continues to expand as new reports claim singer Marsha Ambrosius, rapper/producer Mannie Fresh and more artists will appear on the project.
According to Ambrosius, fans can also expect to hear Odd Future’s Frank Ocean on the LP as well.
G.O.O.D. Music is keeping good company on its forthcoming compilation. Kanye West has called on some of his friends outside of the crew to work on the highly-anticipated album. Frank Ocean, Marsha Ambrosius, and Jay Electronica are among the latest artists to fly to London to record with Yeezy and his G.O.O.D. Music family. “In the studio with Frank Ocean, Big Sean, Pusha T, Manny Fresh 🙂 Kanye West is on the way!!! I’m having fun today,” tweeted Marsha, later adding, “Thoroughly enjoyed my quick trip to London. Witnessed greatness. @PUSHA_T ‘THAT VERSE!’ @BigSean ‘Marsha Marsha Marsha.’ KANYE!!! #1.” Former Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh has also been cooking up some tracks for the spring release, along with Big Sean, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, Mr. Hudson, Hit-Boy and more.

In December, G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean said the project would be completed overseas.
“We’re gonna do the G.O.O.D. Music album first; we been working on that,” Big Sean said in an interview. “So, me, Kanye, [Kid] Cudi, CyHi, John Legend, Common, Pusha T, everybody on G.O.O.D., Mr Hudson: We’re all working on a new project; it’s almost done. We’re going to London to finish it up and do the last part of it and working on my album at the same time with ‘Ye and everybody.” (MTV)
A month prior, G.O.O.D. Music contributing producer Ken Lewis told SOHH he hoped to contribute to Ye’s compilation album.
“I’ve already worked with Kid Cudi, so Kanye’s checked off the list, Cudi’s checked off the list,” Lewis added when asked who he would want to work with in G.O.O.D. Music. “Big Sean, I’d love to work with him. The good thing is hopefully I’ll be able to work with all of them. I’m an equal opportunity guy, I want to work with everybody.” (SOHH)
In November, Sean also hinted at what fans could anticipate from the star-studded release.
“Kanye was like, ‘Yo, we got the illest people in the world on one label.’ I’ve been telling him, ‘We need to do a group thing, a group album.’ Since my album came out, since he just did Watch the Throne, he was like, ‘The next thing we should do is the G.O.O.D.Music album,'” Sean explained in an interview. So, we’re going to have singles. It’s going to be a real a** album. [It’ll have] me, Kanye, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, everybody — [Kid] Cudi, everybody, man. It’s going to be nuts — it’s almost done. I ain’t done with my part though.” (Power 92)
The G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is slated to drop spring 2012.
