As Def Sounds previously reported, multiple G.O.O.D. Music artists from Q-Tip, Pusha T, and Big Sean came forth and confirmed the follow-up to the Cruel Summer album. Big Sean even claimed that he even started to record for the Cruel Winter album. Soon after Big Sean’s revelations, Common shut down all speculation of a Cruel Winter album as he said it’s not happening, and it was all a rumor. Now, Pusha T confirms that there will not be a Cruel Winter album, but says it was a little more than a rumor as there was a lot of music recorded for the project.
During a recent interview with MTV News, Pusha T spoke on previous plans for a Cruel Winter album from the G.O.O.D. Music camp.
I believe that there were intentions for a Cruel Winter and there’s so much music floating, but G.O.O.D. Music isn’t one to just piece a project together
Push says the Cruel Winter album was more than just a rumor, and states there was much music recorded for the album:
I can tell you right now, I probably have 15 verses that are just over beats, that are lying around wherever ‘Ye and his hard drive is right now. And I’m sure Cyhi, Sean, Cudi, Tip, everybody has other production or verses on these records as well.
He says the reason the album wont drop is that Kanye is trying to keep the G.O.O.D Music brand up to a certain standard and piecing together an album wouldn’t work for him:
I think ‘Ye really tries to keep the brand, keep it up to a certain standard and piecing together a record like that, it’s just not gonna work
