Teyana spoke about being the first female signed to G.O.O.D. Music. “[My life has] changed tremendously,” she said. “But as far as my grind and my hustle, that has never changed. Nothing can stop that. I’m excited to be a part of it and happy to have people that believe in me and constantly have me working.”

One of G.O.O.D. Music’s original members, Common, praised the chief, Kanye, who was M.I.A. “That guy is a genius. He’s one of the most talented and passionate people I’ve met in my life,” said the Chi-town MC, while Pusha T added, “It’s like being in school. Kanye’s a major, major critic, but it’s all for what’s best for the record. But he’s on top of you, just making sure that it’s gonna be perfect.”

Sean and 2 Chainz performed “Mercy,” while Pusha delivered his verse on “New God Flow.” 2 Chainz returned for “Birthday Song” and they joined together for “Don’t Like (Remix),” bringing out the rest of the crew for “Clique.”
