According to XXL magazine, Kanye West has signed Mos Def to his GOOD Music label.

An article in the latest issue of the magazine, which is dedicated entirely to West, claims: “Just as Kanye returned to his roots to scoop up Common, he recently recruited his buddy Brooklyn rapper/singer/actor Mos Def into the GOOD Music fold”.

The two rappers have collaborated before. Mos Def appeared on ‘Two Words’ on West’s debut album ‘The College Dropout’, and on ‘Drunk And Hot Girls’ on the 2007 follow-up, ‘Graduation’. He’s also on the latest track in West’s GOOD Fridays free download series, ‘Lord Lord Lord’.
