For fans of GOOD Music, you’ll only have to wait a few more months to get your hands on the “Cruel Winter” compilation album, according to executive producer Travis Scott. Appearing on Hot 97, the “Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight” rapper confirmed the album is coming early 2017.
“I’m executive producing the album,” said Scott. “It’s coming very soon. I wanna say like the top of the next year. I’m putting the press on everybody. I’m saying February.”
When asked how much of the album had already been completed, Scott said a lot of songs have been recorded but only a few of the tracks will actually make the album. “I would say we have a lot of songs done. How many songs I’ll pick? I’ll only say like a handful. We have a lot of songs done, but we just gotta sit down and lock in all the way.”
The “Antidote” rapper also revealed that every member on the GOOD Music record label would contribute to the album. According to Scott, the album will be very “youthful.”
“Every GOOD Music artist is involved. It’s amazing. And we got our illest friends,” he said. “It’s gonna be one of the illest projects. One thing I can say about this project is it’ll be very youthful. Straight to the point. It’s just the best album.”
When asked what “youthful” meant, Scott provided more details. “It means the kids that are not on the radio all the time who really have the clubs going ridiculous. It really has that feel. That’s who this album is for.”
“Cruel Winter” is a follow up to the 2012 album “Cruel Summer.” While reviews for the album which featured Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Common were lukewarm, fans of the label have still been clamoring for a new album. The album is just one of the projects that Kanye plans to release in the near future. The “Famous” rapper recently confirmed a joint album with Drake.
