GOOD Music’s ‘Cruel Summer’ is out on Sep. 18th, and it’s a BANGER! I wasn’t sure if ‘Ye and company would pull it off, but damn- they deliver. I think this is better than ‘Watch The Throne’, and the beats by Kanye and his production team are FANTASTIC!
Here’s the full track listing:
01. Kanye West & R. Kelly: “To The World”
02. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Big Sean: “Clique”
03. Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha-T, and 2 Chainz: “Mercy”
04. Kanye West, Pusha-T, and Ghostface Killah: “New God Flow”
05. Raekwon, Pusha-T, Common, 2 Chainz, Cyhi the Prynce, Kid Cudi, and D’Banj: “The Morning”
06. Kanye West & DJ Khaled: “Cold”
07. The-Dream, Pusha-T, and Ma$e: “Higher”
08. John Legend, Travi$ Scott, Teyana Taylor, Cyhi the Prynce, and Malik Yusef: “Sin City”
09. Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Marsha Ambrosius: “The One”
10. Kid Cudi: “Creepers”
11. John Legend and Teyana Taylor: “Bliss”
12. Kanye West, Chief Keef, Pusha-T, Big Sean, and Jadakiss: “Don’t Like”
This album is SICK. I can’t wait to purchase my copy on Sep. 18th.
“To The World”
I’m starting to feel like Kanye can’t do wrong. He is in his zone and in peak form creatively.July 7, 2012 at 5:00 pm #380677
Kanye West may release new solo album later this year
Rapper’s latest LP to follow on the heels of G.O.O.D. collab album “Cruel Summer.”

Kanye West just doesn’t stop.
The rapper may release his sixth solo album as early as this year, according to producer/Def Jam exec No I.D. in a recent interview with MTV News. The LP will arrive sometime after the August 7 drop of G.O.O.D. Music’s inaugural collaborative album “Cruel Summer” featuring West, John Legend, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz, Common, and Mos Def, among others. G.O.O.D. is West’s own record label, which he founded in 2004.
“He’s coming right after that,” No I.D. told MTV at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in Los Angeles, also stating that he’ll be playing a role in the new album.
West’s most recent solo effort came in 2010 with the critically-acclaimed “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” while last year saw the release of “Watch the Throne,” his collaborative LP with fellow rapper Jay-Z. Earlier this week he debuted his Pusha-T collaboration “New God Flow,” which you can listen to here.September 16, 2012 at 4:56 pm #380679
^Kanye’s verse IS SUPERB.September 17, 2012 at 5:24 pm #380680
Kanye has proven yet again that he is one of (if not the) best rapper/producer in the industry. He is so consistent and brilliant. This is why I don’t understand why people on these forums bitch and moan about him dominating the rap field (along with Jay-Z) when most of their wins are extremely deserving.September 17, 2012 at 5:33 pm #380681
^I agree! I’ve been listening to ‘Cruel Summer’ the past few days, and I think it’s only flaw is that there’s no theme to the album, and with so many different rappers and singers on the album, it’s kind of like a glorified mixtape. But a glorious one. LolSeptember 18, 2012 at 9:36 am #380682
The more I listen to this album, the more I love it, which is kind of the opposite of my feelings towards ‘Watch The Throne’ (which I still enjoyed, but didn’t quite love).
The production on this whole album is INCREDIBLE, which should be no surprise with West himself as the executive producer. I’m really digging the following tracks:
“To The World”
I also have grown to really like Kid Cudi’s track “Creepers”. In a weird way, it just works. The sequencing of this album is one of it’s greatest strengths.September 18, 2012 at 2:49 pm #380683
When will this album be available on iTunes??
