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)
