Get Excited With These Cruel Summer Previews And Official Tracklist

by (@zaragolden)


One of the fall season’s most anticipated releases, G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer is just a few days away, ready to drop on September 18. Already, the all-star compilation’s lead singles, “Mercy,” “New God Flow,” “Cold” and “Clique”, have our G.O.O.D. music fever burning hot. The star-studded tracklist suggests that we’ve only known the beginning of it, because Kanye West is readying to drop another monster of an album on us. In the mix are G.O.O.D. Music men Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, D’Banj, Cyhi the Prynce, Kid Cudi and John Legend, G.O.O.D. Music’s first lady Teyana Taylor, as well as a handful of unexpected others summonsed from Kanye’s thick rolodex, like Jay-Z, Ghostface Killah, The-Dream and Ma$e. No big deal, you know?

Can’t wait until Tuesday to hear all that new G.O.O.D. Music? Check out a preview now below or via iTunes. First up? The biggest R. Kelly hook calling on you to put your middle finger up. Okay! Until Tuesday, we leave you with that typically climactic, middle finger-flicking R.Kelly hook on the opening track, “To the World.”
