Teyana

Last night, Fly Guy, Kanye West hit the stage at this years VMAs to premiere his new video for “Fade,” his latest single off The Life of Pablo.

All night attendees itched with anticipation as to what Mr. West had up his sleeve. During the pre-show, most if not all who were asked whom they were looking forward to uttered that they were anxious to see what Kanye had up his sleeve.

KanyeVMA

What Kanye produced, after his now signature 4-minute VMA rant was his new video featuring his protege and new mom, Teyana Taylor showing off her amazing post-baby body in the sexy work out video, which captures her dancing in a gym while dripping sweat. After the workout, TT enters the shower and locks lips with her fiance, Cleveland Cavalier, Iman Shumpert.

We here @ The SFPL, have always loved and supported Teyana, and are very excited she’s getting the shine she deserves.

Kanye has openly admitted that he hasn’t given her the support she deserves as a signee of his G.O.O.D. Music label, and this is clearly a step in the right direction.

Kudos to Kanye, and super Kudos to Teyana for humbly waiting for her time to shine.

Fly News: Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert Welcome Their First Child

teyana-taylor

Teyana Taylor gave birth to her and NBA’s Iman Shumpert’s first child yesterday morning. With a birth story that sounds more like part of a Hollywood movie plot than real life, Teyana confessed in an Instagram post she wasn’t even aware she was in labor, that is until she felt her head while using the bathroom.

Taylor went on to detail the rest of the relatively easy birth. With Iman, stepping in as doctor, he delivered their daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. and then proceeded to tie the umbilical cord with a pair of headphones. The ambulance arrived shortly after.

Their little bundle of joy made it just in time for Christmas in the most memorable way possible. You can check out the first photo of little Iman Jr. and the entire birth story below. Congratulations to the family.

“On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world. She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head…it took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands! Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried! He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched. Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl”

Fly News: PUSHA T Announced President of G.O.O.D. MUSIC

Pusha T, the Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist and producer, and a key architect of today’s post-modern hip-hop/pop universe, has been appointed president, G.O.O.D. Music, it was announced today by label founder Kanye West.

Pusha recently spoke with Billboard about the G.O.O.D. News:

A big congratulations are in order. Just got word that you will be the president of G.O.O.D. Music. How was the offer presented you?

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 G.O.O.D. 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.

In addition to his new role at G.O.O.D. Music, Pusha T is a co-founder(with his brother Gene “No Malice” Thornton) of Play Cloths, a successful Street wear line, and as an early investor in Mass Appeal. Pusha T is also a frequent collaborator with the adidas Originals brand, most recently taking part in the brand’s Spring / Summer ‘Superstar’ 2015 campaign.

In a perfect world, what would G.O.O.D. Music look like to you in the next five months?

I just look at capitalizing on everything that I feel like G.O.O.D. Music brings to the music industry, our following, and the culture. First of all, we have incredible artists. It’s definitely about getting those albums out in a very manicured fashion. We have great artistic talent that sort of walk the lines of bringing that excitement back in regards to just the art that goes along with it like DONDA, the merch and things like that. Things that kids are really into these days. You see how fashion takes over and these pop-up shops take over and how the music business is a real touring business now, just the things associated with it. Just building it out to make sure that everybody on the label is really capitalizing off of all the assets that really come with GOOD Music, that we really started, that we’ve really been good at. Just really executing all the different avenues of music, art, culture and fashion as well.

Since 2011, G.O.O.D. Music (Getting Out Our Dreams) has been signed to an exclusive worldwide label agreement with Def Jam Recordings, a division of Universal Music Group (UMG). G.O.O.D. Music is currently home to an acclaimed artist roster that includes Big Sean, Q-Tip, Teyana Taylor, Kacy Hill, and Pusha T himself, among others. G.O.O.D. Music has amassed scores of certified gold, platinum, and multi-platinum selling albums and singles.

Since his signing to G.O.O.D. Music in 2010, Pusha T has garnered an impressive track record. He was featured with Kanye West in 2010, on the RIAA platinum “Runaway” from Mr. West’s classic album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In 2012, Pusha T took the lead on a number of tracks from Kanye West’s influential Cruel Summer album, most notably the #1 triple-platinum “Mercy” (with Big Sean and 2 Chainz). Pusha T has been featured on literally dozens of tracks by such artists as Lorde, Puffy Daddy, Jeezy, Future, The-Dream, Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Chris Brown and has become a sought after collaborator with EDM’s biggest names following the success of his track “Burial” with Yogi and Skrillex. Throughout 2015 Pusha T’s music has scored many of the biggest moments in film, television and commercials providing the soundtrack for everything from adidas campaigns to the VMAs. Pusha T’s 2013 debut solo album for G.O.O.D. Music, My Name Is My Name, entered the Billboard Hip-Hop Album Chart at #2.

Pusha T (born Terrence Thornton in the Bronx) emerged in the fertile hip-hop music scene centered in Virginia Beach, not far from where he grew up in Norfolk. In 1992, he and his brother Gene formed the much revered, platinum selling rap duo the Clipse.

Congrats Pusha T!
