G.O.O.D. Music Album Cruel Summer to Release in September

Fans are going to have to wait a few weeks long for the G.O.O.D. Music compilation.

Def Jam announced earlier today that the highly-anticipated release from Kanye West and his crew will hit stores on September 4, rather than August 7, as previously announced. The project, Cruel Summer, will come on the heels of the success of “Mercy,” which features West, Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz, and currently sits on No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop charts. The line up on the album should include those four, as well as Kid Cudi, Common, Q-Tip and more.

Other details regarding the release are scarce. There has been no tracklist, featured guests, or production credits released as of yet, which has only served to further build excitement. Earlier this month, Yeezy and Pusha joined forces once again to drop “New God Flow,” which has continued to build buzz for the album.

Cruel Summer will be the second consecutive album that Kanye has released with other artists since his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in November 2010. Last August, he teamed with Jay-Z for Watch The Throne. Rumors are swirling, though, that ‘Ye will also be dropping a solo project, as well, before the year is out.

Cruel Summer will be available September 4. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)

    Ok so Obama gives the Saudi Arabia billions of dollars to make guns and gives them a fighter jet(look it up)..wants to significantly reduce gun laws(before the Colorado shooting) AND has had troops that have killed civilians. This man killed Osama Bin Laden which no one can show has been a threat in the past 10 years or even directly linked to certain terrorist attacks they link him to but Obama does ALL this and he’s not even REMOTELY a terrorist. You know if a drug dealer kills another drug dealer….he’s still a drug dealer. Just cause Obama killed a terrorist doesnt mean the US isnt about to fuck Libya of their oil resources(in that country every citizen has a share in the oil business).

    Research before you call someone negligent.

    Wow, very selective reading for XXL. He called Barack Obama a terrorist and every president before him one too, mostly because of foreign policy.. and our foreign policy is one of terrorism. When he said he wouldn’t pair with any other rapper, that was his response to being asked who would you pair to become more SUCCESSFUL. He doesn’t believe that pairing with another rapper just for more success or fame is the right thing to do. He does it to make good music and to rap with good friends that he knows. Learn to read before you start selectively picking at what he says, I have never made a comment on XXL. But this report was so ignorant, I had to post. Idiot’s can’t even read or quote a full statement correctly, trying to selectively nit pick what he says.

    This entire report is on some extremely biased bullshit. The entirety of it was made with the sole purpose of portraying Lupe Fiasco as worse than he is. The “claims” made by Lupe are taken out of context and skewed in order to put him into a negative light. Whoever wrote this should learn to write objectively as this is some of the crappiest propaganda I’ve seen.
