Q-Tip Hints at ‘Cruel Winter’ Album

Q-Tip

If you were wondering why Q-Tip, Mos Def, and others weren’t on Cruel Summer, there may be a G.O.O.D. reason. Q-Tip has revealed that a sequel could be in the works.

When asked why he didn’t appear on the compilation, the legendary rapper/producer apologized, but offered a hint at what’s to come. “I know, I know, I’m sorry about that but I have to let the cat out of the bag. Kanye’s probably gonna get…” he told MTV News at Saturday’s BET Hip Hop Awards.

He called his G.O.O.D. labelmate Pusha T over and asked him if it was OK to spill the details. “If there’s a Cruel Summer then there’s got to be a Cruel Winter, right?” he said.

The compilation featuring Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Common, and Teyana Taylor opened at No. 2 this week on the Billboard 200 with 205,000 copies sold.

    Well hopefully it comes out in the winter, unlike the previous effort which came out in fall instead of the summer. It’ll be called cruel spring…

    @G.O.O.D Music, Sure it leaked just before summer ended, but the album was released 14 September – which technically isn’t summer.

    Makes sense with the shortage of new/previously unheard tracks on CS, not that I’m hating as I LOVE the album. Was looking forward to the next regardless

    So I wonder if it’s this winter maybe Dec or Jan/Feb. So hopefully Q Tip, Yasiin Bey, and Hudson are on it. More Common, Cudi, Cyhi and some more surprises!

    If Kanye doesn’t want this info out then he’ll probably drop Q-tip from the label lol. Cruel winter would be crazzzzyyyyy tho

    Yeezy ain’t gonna fire Q-Tip for nothing, Kanye looks up to that dude if anything. And this would definitely be a good thing because Cruel Summer was kind of a disappointment. This time they only need to have had no more than 3 singles released prior to the album, more Kid Cudi, Mr Hudson, Q-Tip, Common, & Yassin Bey (Mos Def), and it needs to come out by February (As in still Winter lol)

    Kanye West is still a great music artist, The GOOD Music-Cruel Summer album was good, but could had been a whole lot better. I hope Kanye West gets Common, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Mr. Hudson, Kid Cudi, Frank Ocean, Jay Electronica, and Azealia Banks for GOOD Music-Cruel Winter album. I hope that 2 Chainz is not on GOOD Music-Cruel Winter album. The problem with GOOD Music-Cruel Summer album was that we heard 5 songs off the album before the album came out in stores. The delays and pushbacks may have hurt that album. Common only had 1 verse, Mos Def, Q-Tip, and Mr. Hudson wasn’t on the album, and 2 Chainz had 3 verses which were not all that great. Hopefully, GOOD Music-Cruel Winter album turns out to be a whole lot better than GOOD Music-Cruel Summer.

    Kanye couldn’t possibly get another album out in the next couple months!?

    I’m always up for more

    YESSSS. As it says in the back of the album “In GOOD we Trust”. I trust Kanye to deliver the second time around. Cruel Summer was decent, but no Q-Tip or Mos Def Features was dissapointing for me. BUt it kinda makes sense to have a second album. There are a lot of artists under the label so it could be hard to let everyone shine on one album. If this is true than I can understand why Kanye didn’t put any bonus tracks on Cruel Summer if he orignally decided to release 2 albums.

    Hopefully if Cruel Winter does release we would have NO 2 Chainz or Big Sean, and have Q-Tip, Mos Def and Mr Hudson feature more prominently.

    I can’t front, this news done made my morning. I honestly can’t wait to hear that project. I too expect the album to be INSANE this time around. “Cruel Summer” was dope needless to say. In G.O.O.D. we trust.
