Kanye West, G.O.O.D. Music Crew Appear on Complex Magazine’s August Cover
Kanye West wrestles with one of hip-hop’s more notable messianic complexes, and on the cover of Complex magazine’s August/September issue, he and his G.O.O.D. Music crew play it for all its worth.
Designed by the rapper’s DONDA design firm and photographer NABIL, the image features head shots of Yeezy and seven affiliates arranged in the shape of a crucifix. The tagline: “In G.O.O.D. We Trust.”
Inside the issue, which hits stands Aug. 7, G.O.O.D. members Common, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, John Legend, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Q-Tip participate in a roundtable discussion, chatting about their experiences working for West.
The first question, naturally, is, “What does G.O.O.D. Music mean to you,” and Big Sean doesn’t hesitate to talk up the collective, which releases its group debut, Cruel Summer, Sept. 7.
“Quality — the best,” Sean says. “Kanye put himself in a class that nobody can match, as far as evolving, progressing, and taking the best of what we learn and making more out of it. So the brand is just being the coolest. We dress the best, we rap the best, we sing the best, we look the best.”
