Transformed from the so-called "Louis Vuitton don" to the purported "abomination of Obama's nation" and back to being the kingpin of his very own G.O.O.D. Music label, there's never a dull moment in the erratic, if excessively well documented and tabloid-infecting life of a certain Kanye West . And over a night on which he nonchalantly rattles off the second of three sold out London shows in the space of a week in the crimson round of the Hammersmith Apollo, the same can certainly be said of his live portrayal. It is something of a portrayal after [...]

G.O.O.D. Music - Cruel Summer By Leanne Sherman So after many leaks and teasers, namely 'Clique', 'Mercy', 'New God Flow', 'Cold' and chief Keef's 'I Don't Like' remix, one of the years most highly anticipated albums - G.O.O.D. Music 's Cruel Summer has finally arrived. Kanye West 's side project with his friends that make up G.O.O.D (Getting Out Our Dreams) Music has had many fans scratching the proverbial walls waiting to hear what happens when Big Sean, Common, Pusha T, [...]
"The lingering is that for Kanye, when it comes to collaboration, it appears that less is definitely more..." Kanye West & Various Artists | Cruel Summer Kanye West is without doubt one of the most famous hip-hop artists of modern day history, but even creating Cruel Summer must have taken some organisation on his part. You see, this isn't just Kanye's album, this is an album created by a Kanye-formed hip hop supergroup entitled G.O.O.D. If anyone thought Kanye had a slight God complex creating such a group (see the spelling link [...]

Kanye West has certainly become one to collaborate. Single All of the Lights from his 2010 album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ features no less than fourteen additional vocalists (most of which can barely be heard). And of course there’s last year’s lauded collaborative album ‘Watch The Throne’ with Jay-Z. And now he releases the first mixtape from his G.O.O.D record label, set up back in 2004 (standing for Getting Out Our Dreams). ‘Cruel Summer’ [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
After getting our hands on the snippets , it appears the entire Cruel Summer is now available for streaming. While some of the snippets were underwhelming, perhaps a full listen will do a better job of winning us over. The opening track with R. Kelly is rather lovely, for example. I just wish some of these singles hadn't been floating around the radio for such a long time, it would have made for a fresher sounding release. Anyway, there it is, ready for you to tear apart and critique until the end of time. Did the G.O.O.D. [...]
The G.O.O.D. Music collaborative album Cruel Summer is less than a week away from hitting stores, and lucky for us iTunes released a pre-order for the album which conveniently came with a 9 0 second preview of each song on the album . The official tracklist was released last week confirming 12 songs are on the album, all but two of which are collaborations featuring an array of artists from R. Kelly to Jadakiss , and of course all the usual G.O.O.D . suspects ( Kanye, Pusha T, Big [...]

As the release of G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer approaches, it appears snippets of each track have materialized on iTunes. Someone took it upon themselves to compile each track and throw it on Soundcloud, and now we get a sneak peek at what this album is going to sound like. We don't really know what to expect from this album, but the features list is quite impressive. The only question that remains is whether or not the execution will be at the same level as we hope. With that said, after skimming through the snippets, [...]

Kanye's been posting numerous tracks over the summer under his G.O.O.D. Music umbrella, in preperation for the release of his Cruel Summer album. The latest of these, a hard-nosed collaboration with Jay Z and Big Sean features a beat courtesy of Hit 'Niggas In Paris' Boy. With the tracklisting leaking this week, Cruel Summer will feature a vast array of contributors, including: Pusha T Big Sean 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, CyHi, Teyana Taylor, John Legend, Jay-Z, R. Kelly, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Common, Ma$e and DJ Khaled. Listen below.
G.O.O.D. Music's "Clique", the future Cruel Summer song that generated tons of excited "Kanye talks about Kim's sex tape" blogosphere headlines in its previously leaked Kanye-verse-only snippet form, has now arrived in full, and similar to damn near everything else that has dropped from this crew ever, it's a helluva musical event. Anchored by Hit-Boy 's fittingly epic (and destined to be endlessly freestyle'd over) production, the big, bad and bold "Clique" kicks off with Big Sean -both continuing his Most Improved ride following yesterday's mixtape dope Detroit and strengthening his worth [...]
Artist: Clique Title: Kanye West ft. Jay Z & Big Sean File Name: SoundCloud Genre: Rap Hiphop
Thanks to online shopping juggernaut Amazon.com , we now have the complete tracklist for Kanye West 's highly anticipated new G.O.O.D. Music album, Cruel Summer . As expected, Kanye West is only vocally present on a little over half of the album, mostly tracks we've already heard in one form or another ("Mercy," "New God Flow," "Cold," "Clique," "I Don't Like Remix"). Like label albums are wont to do, Cruel Summer focuses on the smaller players surrounding Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music . [...]
September 18 can't come soon enough. With four singles already released, including the latest "Clique", I'm am extremely excited for the new G.O.O.D. collaborative album, Cruel Summer .Clique is a Hit Boy production and features verses from Big Sean , Jay-Z , and Kanye . The introduction includes a sample of James Fauntleroy , a member of Cocaine 80s , and a high pitched "hey" sample from James Brown . Yeezy throws down a sick verse on this one with Hov not too far behind. When you look at [...]

In addition to " Clique " hitting the web last night, the final track listing for G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer compilation appeared. And it's...well, it's kind of underwhelming. Even though we had heard that Jay Electronica, Frank Ocean, and Yasiin Bey were slated to appear, they are nowhere to be found here. Also, the track listing looks like a re-up of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy , which isn't the worst scenario obviously. It's just kind of frustrating. 1. To The World – Kanye West, R. Kelly 2. Clique – Kanye West, [...]
We are only a few weeks away from Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer being released. Today, another taste of the album was revealed with Kanye getting some help from Jay-Z and Big Sean. "Clique" has more Kim Kardashian references and see Hit-Boy handling the production duties. Stream it below.

Here it is folks, the latest track off the upcoming album Cruel Summer , Clique . There has been a lot of hype about this song since the track’s artwork was release two days ago, so we are pleased to inform you that this track is dope. Kanye West , Jay-Z and Big Sean all go hard as hell over this nasty beat produced by Hit-Boy . The G.O.O.D. Music album is set to be released on September 18th, so for those of you burned out [...]

"My girl a superstar all from a home movie" Kanye West and Hov have decided to let Big Sean into the clique, and with Hit-Boy backing them up, we all knew the outcome was going to be crack. Now it's here, and it is indeed fire. With Cruel Summer looming large on the horizon, we have "Clique", along with the other releases, to sate us until September 18th. Check the track out below and at KanyeWest.com . Kanye West, Jay-Z & Big Sean: "Clique"
Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Big Sean... need I say more? The first song off of the Cruel Summer G.O.O.D. Music collaboration album is here, in CDQ, and it's huge. Take a listen or download it after the jump... It's gunna be a good fall. On a side note, I would refer to a group of friends as a click, not a clique, and only recently found out clique is even a word. Interesting that within 2 weeks there's a song about it, verrrryyyy interesting.
Unfortunately, Cruel Summer did not drop earlier in the summer but it will be here on September 18 . We have a new song from the anticipated project. The Hit-Boy -produced "Clique" which is studded with Big Sean, Kanye West and Jay-Z is here in full. We are intrigued by the beat; the way the beat goes from minimal to maximal, especially that minimal bit. The chemistry of Hit-Boy and G.O.O.D. Music is a match, a match made in heaven. Listen to the bravado-soaked single below...
