Kanye West + G.O.O.D. Music’s Rumored ‘Cruel Summer’ Track List Leaks
The track list to the much-delayed G.O.O.D. Music compilation, ‘Cruel Summer,’ has leaked, and it boasts features from Kanye West and Pusha T, which we all expected — but also has a few surprises, too.
Idolator snagged a rumored but unconfirmed copy of the compilation’s track listing. In addition to the usual suspects (West, Pusha, Big Sean), R. Kelly, Jay-Z, 2 Chainz and even Ma$e make appearances on the album.
The highly anticipated album has been pushed back numerous times, and the current release date is slated for Sept. 18. If Yeezy and Co. wait any longer, they’re going to have to rename the album ‘Cruel Autumn.’
West recently tweeted an image of the ‘Cruel Summer’ cover art, featuring a woman covering her chest with her hands, appearing to be carved from stone. Perhaps that’s why it’s taking Ye so long to release it: Maybe he’s approaching ‘Cruel Summer’ the same way Michelangelo did the statue of David, taking his time to simply chop away every bit of stone (or production, or verses) that isn’t part of the masterpiece.
One thing missing from the track listing that makes us think this may not be the final product, though? Malik Yusef recently hinted on Twitter that Mos Def may be making a cameo on the record, but that isn’t indicated in this list.
