G.O.O.D music artist Malik Yusef released his sophmoer album, G.O.O.D Morning & G.O.O.D Night back in 2009. Though not achieving great radio success, the project itself sold 600,000 copies, gaining acclaim for Yusef's spoken-word stylings. Along with a stellar list of guest appearances, the project showed the quality of music Yusef can create. Five years after its release, Malik re visits the project for a second release,G.O.O.D Morning & G.O.O.D Night Deconstructed. The project contains some material from the retail release, along with newer guest features and brand new, original tunes. Features on the project includes Kanye West, John Legend, Common, Big Sean, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, KRS-One, Twista and CyHi The Prince among plenty of up-and-comers.

Even though he’s in Dr. Dre’s corner at Aftermath Entertainment, Jon Connor shows his appreciation for G.O.O.D music icon, Kanye West, in his latest mix tape, #BestInTheWorld. Connor describes this project as "The Late Registration of a College Dropout who had a Dark Twisted Fantasy of 808s And Heartbreak," meaning that he has all the bases covered in his tribute to Mr. West. From The College Drop Out's "Two Word's" to the most recent works of Yeezus, JC goes in over all the classic Kanye instrumentals. Evident from the mixtape title and description, Conner is truly in a Kanye "Best Rapper Alive" state of mind. This mixtape hits home for me personally because I still vibe out to all of these old Kanye hits to this day- and hearing an equally talented emcee rip apart these beats makes it a truly memorable tape. Take in Jon Conner's BestInTheWorld mixtape, and let us know if he did Yeezie justice.
