Pusha T confused the world on Friday (January 28) when he shared a mysterious signed Def Jam paperwork that fans couldn't decipher its exact meaning. In the caption, the rapper thanked Kanye West by referring to him as “Yezos.” Desperate for answers, many fans presumed that Push is leaving G.O.O.D Music.

In an interview with Complex, Pusha's manager Steven Victor clarified that the former Clipse member is still signed to G.O.O.D Music but is leaving Def Jam, and that his next album will be the last to release via the label. With Ye's help, Pusha will be owning his masters.
“[He's still with] G.O.O.D. Music, he's just not signed to Def Jam anymore,” Victor said. “This is his last album on Def Jam.”
Victor also explained that there are possibilities for Pusha to return to Def Jam. “I mean, we might re-sign with Def Jam, I'm just saying he fulfilled his contract obligation,” he revealed. “He might re-sign with Def Jam, it's just the whole point of it is that he's still with Kanye regardless of wherever he ends up with his next projects. It will be with Kanye.”
Pusha T is working on his next album reportedly titled, It's Not Dry Yet, which will be entirely produced by Ye and The Neptunes. Aside from sharing a few snippets in the past few weeks, Push has also been seen in the studio with the likes of Ye, Asap Rocky, Fivio Foreign, The Game, and more.
