Kanye West Drops 808s & Heartbreak
Although Kanye’s own albums aren’t released through G.O.O.D. Music, he still uses them to big-up his signees. The experimental sound of 808s had the world buzzing in the fall of ’08 and Kanye tossed Mr. Hudson and Cudi alley-oops into the limelight with features on the album. They both killed their features, foreshadowing future successes on the label’s roster.
