Those looking forward to a 'Cruel Summer' in August, as per Pusha T, will have to wait a little longer -- but not too long. The anticipated G.O.O.D. Music compilation album will be available digitally and through retailers on September 4.
In time for the album news, G.O.O.D. Music graces the cover of Complex's August/September issue. In the "Good Music: New Religion" cover story, seven of the label's most illustrious members -- sans Kanye West -- share secrets behind their dynamic and the place commander-in-chief West has in each of their lives, musically.
G.O.O.D Music affiliate 2 Chainz opened up about his actual connection to the organization, stating he's not signed but has discussed the matter with 'Ye many times, developing a situation workable for both parties.
"I'm not officially signed, paperwork-wise, to G.O.O.D. Music. But I have a great rapport with 'Ye. He called me before Watch the Throne came out," he said.
In a twist of fate, Pusha T also revealed, "N*ggas in Paris," off Watch the Throne, was intended for him, but he ended up passing on Hit-Boy's beat.
"He ain't lying. I thought Pusha had that beat. I heard that three or four times, and it wasn't for him," Kid Cudi added.
G.O.O.D.'s summer hit, "Mercy," sits atop our R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 1 once again this week for the fourth time. Their second single, "New God Flow," is currently No. 6 on iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap singles.
