Four years have passed since Q-Tip hinted at a follow-up to G.O.O.D. Music’s 2012 compilation set Cruel Summer. Feelings of hope for the sequel, aptly titled Cruel Winter, returned this week when Big Sean previewed a new Kanye West verse on his Snapchat, a studio session that ‘Ye collaborator Fonzworth Bentley also captured on Instagram with the hashtag “#CruelWinter.”
On Friday (June 3), West headed to L.A. radio station Real 92.3 to premiere the new single off the highly anticipated LP. “We might mix it a couple more times before we release it for sale and everything,” he admitted about the yet-to-be-titled track.
“Pray for me Im about to hear the Ye button” West raps from jump, even claiming that he’s “fresh out of debt.” The features include a stacked VIP list comprised of Migos‘ Quavo, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Desiigner, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, and a newly released Gucci Mane.
Consider this confirmation that G.O.O.D. Music will be heating up the winter.
