G.O.O.D. Fridays made the world stop spinning at the end of every work week as we waited for Kanye to tweet a new link. The thirst for “So Appalled” or “Christian Dior Denim Flow” has not been matched. Pioneering the now commonplace practice of simple cover art and free releases—featuring unexpected guests like Justin Bieber and Beyonce—Kanye and the whole G.O.O.D. Music crew made the fall of 2010 a very special time on the internet and in the streets. If the party you went to Friday night wasn’t playing “Take One For The Team,” it was wack. G.O.O.D. Fridays epitomized the pursuit of greatness by ‘Ye and crew—all while forcing the music industry to rethink its entire organization.
