G.O.O.D. Music – Cruel Summer
At this point I think we all expect Kanye to only put out incredible music. Well once again Mr. West proves to be the kind of artist who doesn’t just know how to show off his talents, he knows how to showcase others too. The way he put together Cruel Summer is impressive. The G.O.O.D. Music roster is obviously abundant with talent but the way Kanye uses them in all the right spots is what distinguishes this album. The music ranges from braggadocios rap at its finest (Mercy, Clique) to songs with more introspection to them (Bliss, Creepers). It all works together as a cohesive album that I can actually listen to all the way through. In this single driven market that’s really saying something. Cruel Summer is one of the best group efforts I’ve ever heard in hip hop and it’s already sold over 200K. Download it here.
