They say G.O.O.D. things come to those who wait and now we have actual confirmation that the album featuring John Legend, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Mr Hudson, Cyhi the Prynce, Mos Def, Pusha T, D’banj, Q-Tip, Teyana Taylor, Common and of course Kanye West is scheduled to drop on September 4th. That we still have another month and a half to wait makes this a Cruel Summer indeed.
While we’re all anxiously anticipating the release of the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Kanye West will be releasing a short film inspired by music from the album which now goes by the name Cruel Summer. The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 23rd and remain open to the public until May 25th before hopefully becoming available on the Internet. The film stars Kid Cudi and Aziz Ansari and may or may not have been filmed in the Middle East. Cruel Summer is the first project coming out of West’s DONDA initiative and will feature an “immersive 7-screen experience” as tweeted by Kanye himself. We can only hope that the album will be released soon after or else it will be a Cruel Summer indeed. You can catch the feast for the eyes Runaway, Kanye’s last film which was released to accompany My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, below.
