Rapper King Myers alternative fact about being signed to G.O.O.D. music made it all the way to CNN. Pusha T is now shutting the rumor down.
King Myers has been campaigning his new single “Propaganda” by living up to the title and creating some of his own. He’s been online tagging Kanye West in his tweets about the song, also claiming that West produced it. Myers also went as far as to give the song credit for Kanye’s sudden change of heart to recant his support of Donald Trump.
West himself never co-signed or retweeted the message, which is a red flag seeing as how Kanye has a history of making sure you know when he’s said or created something.
Myers’ alternative facts made it as far as CNN when they reported on West’s new political stance and mentioned the song while saying Myers was a “signee” of G.O.O.D. Music. They have since corrected themselves. Evidently, Myers got caught up in his own sauce and decided to call out G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T, saying it was now his turn to join his movement.
But Pusha did not oblige, instead opting to separate himself from the situation immediately.
While Myers lies may have been cute at first, TMZ is reporting that Team Kanye is getting the lawyers involved to have his name removed from all promotion of the track. This isn’t the only instance of Myers claiming to be down with G.O.O.D. In December, MTV Base reported that Myers was signed to G.O.O.D. music, based simply on the fact that he and another group named Cage The Elephant said so.
The irony here is that Pusha has come forth to dispell the rumor, right after Migos came out last week against Pusha’s claims that they were signed to G.O.O.D. in a management deal.
So far for his troubles, Myers has had his single mentioned on both CNN and TMZ, just for lying. Looks like the era of alternative facts is really here.
