G.O.O.D. Music's collective project is easily one of the more anticipated albums of 2012, and it was released across the country today. As soon as Kanye starts repeating "Mitt Romney ain't pay no tax" on the first track, you know shit's about to get interesting. First impressions: Mitt Romney ain't ... Read More
Cruel Summer dropped today and you should go BUY that shit and support your artists. That being said the G.O.O.D. Music crew did a cypher for Funkmaster Flex and it is NUTSSSS. Check it out here and enjoy, because this proves some SERIOUS talent. The cypher includes Big Sean, Cyhi Da Prince, Common and Pusha T and they go offff....
I’ve made no secret of my feelings about Kanye and R. Kelly here in the past , so hearing of their collaboration on today’s release of G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer had me just shy of giddy. This is very clearly not a Kanye album, but a mixed-bag showcase for the his label collective’s roster. “To The World” is its opener, featuring beats from Glasgow up-and-comer Hudson Mohawke, and there’s something in the details of his lifting production that’s enticing to hear. Kelly’s autotuned vocals make the bulk of the track, but [...]
Love ( My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy ) or loathe ( 808s & Heartbreak ), G.O.O.D. Music head honcho Kanye West is, absolutely indubitably, the mercurial hip hop mastermind he unendingly proclaims himself to be. Blazoned as such across the entirety of this here universe, he's The One; the Champion; the Runaway; the Monster: all of the above, and all at once. And in being this polymathic jack of all trades and master of but one, he debatably has less of a clue as to who he really is than we do. Here, in [...]
The G.O.O.D. music team fell through Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 show tonight and Big Sean, CyHi The Prynce & Common kicking some unheard verses of beats like "What We Do" & "Shook Ones." Teyana Taylor stuck to looking good and Pusha T decided not to go in. I will say maybe CyHi isn't as wack as I initially had thought. I mean he's no Stalley, but more on that another time. G.O.O.D. Music - Funkmaster Flex Freestyle Cruel Summer is in stores tomorrow. via [...]

While the masses were quick to jump on the leak of Cruel Summer last week, the real G.O.O.D. Music diehards knew to wait, as Ye’ again fooled us all. The leaked version of “New God Flow” was apparently not finished, as we can now hear the completed track featuring an additional verse from Ghostface Killah . Hear the tagged version below: Pusha T x Kanye West x Ghostface Killah - New God Flow (Tagged Remix) by thedopesteez [...]
G.O.O.D. Music - Cruel Summer G.O.O.D. Music: 2012 The idea of a “Kanye West posse album” is a preposterous one. Since Kanye was signed as a rapper to Roc-A-Fella not for his rapping skills but because Dame and Jay wanted to keep their beatsman happy, he’s spent all his time yelling “Look at me!” and doing a Rob Van Dam pose . It’s his greatest character flaw, and also his greatest artistic asset. His insistence on talking about himself has allowed us to follow him from unappreciated Jay-Z lackey (“Big Brother”) to doing songs about being richer [...]
The odds were against this one from the beginning. When Kanye West founded label G.O.O.D. Music in 2004, it was just him, Common , and John Legend – three guys who, despite a few obvious differences between them, shared enough ground to make sense as a team. But in the years since, Kanye has added the likes of Pusha T , 2 Chainz , Big Sean , The-Dream , CyHi the Prynce , and Kid Cudi , some of whom are viable creative presences, some of [...]
Wild to think that it feels like eons ago (October 2011, to be exact) when legendary beat-maker and confidently brash Chi-town rapper, Kanye West, first revealed his plans for a GOOD Music collaborative album. With help from Def Jam Records, Cruel Summer is the first creation from members of the new record label and features participation from a star-studded cast that includes John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Pusha T, Big Sean, Kid CuDi, Common, R. Kelly, and more. The original plan was for a formal scheduled release date in August, but that was later pushed back to September 18, [...]
With the G.O.O.D. Music 's highly anticipated group album Cruel Summer dropping on Tuesday, Kanye West and Pusha T are giving everyone a taste of the final product with the final version of "New God Flow". For everyone out there that jumped on the album leak, take a step back and revel in the addition of Ghostface Killah to Ye and Pusha T's collab. Even if you aren't excited about the addition of Ghostface to the song, don't worry, 'cause Pusha T's has enough excitement for all of [...]
Counting down the days until Kanye & Co.'s Cruel Summer is released? This should hold you over until September 18th. Head on over to fistintheair to stream the album in its entirety. Kanye, you had me at R. Kelly.
Much like last summer’s Watch The Throne , G.O.O.D. Music’s posse record Cruel Summer is a Kanye West record, at least musically speaking. Like Watch The Throne , Cruel Summer is lined with the maximalist, detail-fixated production that basically comes synonymous with Kanye’s discography, and the record employs work from celebrated, critically beloved hitmakers like Hit-Boy, Noah “40” Shebib, Hudson Mohawke, and West himself. And, to West or whomever’s credit, the production on Cruel Summer never overreaches in the way that Watch The Throne might have (I love Watch [...]
This playlist is inspired by G.O.O.D. Music's/Kanye West's Cruel Summer leaking into the blogosphere yesterday. Last night, I gave the album a listen, wasn't crazy about it, but not disappointed either. There was one song that stuck out however, "To The World ft. R. Kelly." It's great. I'll leave it at that because I want you to decide for yourself when you hear it by hitting play below. Also on the playlist, to name a few Atmosphere , P.O.S . and Tupac . Enjoy and have a great Friday! [...]
