Will Kanye West + G.O.O.D. Music Follow ‘Cruel Summer’ With ‘Cruel Winter?’
‘Cruel Summer’ only just debuted last week, but there are already a slew of rumors about a followup to the G.O.O.D. Music compilation. We can thank a particular pair of loose lips at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards for that!
Q-Tip spilled the beans on the red carpet last night (Sept. 29). Hitting the festivities with G.O.O.D. Music MC Pusha T, when asked why he didn’t appear on ‘Cruel Summer,’ the ‘Vivrant Thing’ rapper replied, “I know. I’m sorry, kids. I know, I know — I’m sorry about that,” he stammered in his signature drawl.
Before he continued, he grabbed Pusha and said, “I’m gonna let the cat out of the bag. Am I gonna get in trouble?” he asked Push, who shook his head and replied, “You say whatever you want!” And that’s when Q-Tip spilled the beans: “If there’s a ‘Cruel Summer,’ there’s gotta be a ‘Cruel Winter!’” The look on Pusha T’s face when Q-Tip dropped that bomb was pretty priceless.
The ‘Cruel Summer’ compilation was so delayed that it actually hit shelves on a few days before autumn, which wouldn’t have had as good a ring to it. Here’s hoping that if ‘Cruel Winter’ is real, it doesn’t actually become ‘Cruel Spring.’ Kanye West and Co., get on that!
