“Actually, I was flying home and I had just got into my car at the airport. ‘Ye had called me and he was like, ‘Tell me something. What do you think about being the president of GOOD Music?’ And I was like, ‘Well, what are the things that you’re looking for?’ And he was basically just like, to manicure the label, make it profitable and be very business-oriented about it going forward in a manicured type of way.”

He continued:

“I always look at it as an opportunity to help the team and I think that artistically, me and Kanye have the same vision. He respects me as an artist, a really manicured artist.”
