Now that Travis Scott has finally released his long-overdue album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, it seems like he’s finally able to cut loose and focus on other projects. Yesterday for instance, he appeared on a surprise new track from Tinashe wherein he provided an aria-via-auto-tune that would make an opera singer swoon. But far more exciting than any guest spot comes Scott’s surprise reveal of details surrounding Cruel Winter, the upcoming sequel album from Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music label.
Scott stopped by HOT 97 for a comprehensive interview last night wherein he dropped a few juicy nuggets surrounding the highly-anticipated album. First of all, he revealed that he will be executive-producing the album himself. He went on to say that the record will drop during the beginning of the year next year... and that it will feature every current member of G.O.O.D. Music's roster. Which if anyone's counting, means that it will include Scott, Pusha T, John Legend, Q-Tip, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, and of course Kanye himself. And it is expected that it will also include the label's most recent signees from this year: Desiigner and Tyga (who was signed literally hours ago).
Cruel Winter is of course the sequel to Cruel Summer, the immensely satisfying (if not uneven) 2012 opus that produced the earth-shattering single "Mercy." Even if Cruel Winter can produce just one hit of its equal, we're here for it.
