Sev, trolling is when you post something on the internet, usually in somekind of discussion where your intentions aren't to have any kind of serious discussion or accept any feedback or input from other posters. Frequently such posts are excessively inflammatory

Kim just tweeted that Kanye is finishing No More Parties in L.A. It was delayed because he flew to Italy for a fashion thing (sigh). Apparently Kanye wrote 90 bars on the plane.

Doesn't sound like he's as closed to finished as he'd like is to believe.

In a recent tweet he said he was finishing up his next album and next compilation. Think there's a Cruel Summer II in the works? If there is, and it's half as good as the first one, I'm all in baby.

Seriously though, if he's still writing bars, I doubt we're going to see a new album in the next month. Didn't he say he wrapped it back in November of 2014?

Still hopeful though.

Well damn, I still need to read the lyrics, but perhaps Kanye just "washed" Kendrick??? Wow.

Amazing collab. Was well worth the wait.

louder 01.18.2016 07:31 AM

2nd listen. This is one of Kanye's best verses ever.. jesus.

Severian 01.18.2016 10:13 AM

hah! I woke up late this morning becaue I was up damn late last night working on some stories. So this was the first things heard after my alarm. Seriously, I woke up, went to Soundcloud and blasted this beast.

It's not even really up for discussion is it louder? This is just hot as hell, and that's a fucking fact.

Kendrick kills. Kendrick pretty much always kills, but he's never done it on a Ye track before.

And Kanye... damn. Personally I'm way over the whole "he's not a great rapper" thing. Because even though he may not have started out that way, I genuinely think he's been a good rapper all along, and an incredible emcee since Late Registration. But I've noticed that he's been honing his skills a bit since Yeezus. "All Day" is a super low quality cut, and I truly hope we get a proper version of it soon, but on that track he pulled some vocal shit that he'd never really done before. He went harder/faster/stronger, and the result was genuinely awesome.

But this? This is Kanye hitting a new level with his voice, his delivery, his breath control and his speed. Yes, I think Kanye did just step on Kendrick. Verse was unbelievable.

Swish is dropping on February 11th.

It's starting to look like that's actually going to be the album's title too. Yeesh! Oh well, the tracks are proving to be hot as hell.

I know nothing about that.
Last I heard Pusha was being questioned about it, asked if another G.O.O.D. Music "sampler" was in the label's future. He said he was definitely into it.

What's funny is that Cruel Summer really isn't a sampler. It features tons of non-GOOD Music artists, and it ultimately flows more or less like a Kanye West album. Which is awesome, certainly. But now that's what I want and expect from Cruel Summer II (or Cruel Winter?). I don't want it to be a compilation. I want it to be a "Kanye & Friends" joint that's batshit crazy and goes hard as hell.

To me, Cruel Summer is like the sister album to Watch the Throne. The silver to WTT's gold. A sequel would have to ride the same wave for it to work. If he wants to drop a proper GOOD sampler, he's gonna need to rebrand it and start something new.

The G.O.O.D. Music album Cruel Summer featured most of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. roster, with one noteworthy exception: recent signee Q-Tip. MTV News asked Tip about his absence on the album at last night's BET Hip-Hop Awards. "I know, I know, I'm sorry about that but I have to let the cat out of the bag. Kanye's probably gonna get...," he said, pausing to call Pusha-T over. "If there's a Cruel Summer, then there's got to be a Cruel Winter, right?"

Ok, sure... But what I'm saying is that R. Kelly, 2 Chainz, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, for example, aren't G.O.O.D. artists, but were featured prominently on the album. Also, where was Mr. Hudson?

Honestly though, it's just a Kanye & company album to me. It has about as many co-contributors as MBDTF, knowmean?

Severian 01.19.2016 05:25 PM

Plus, that Pitchfork article is four years old.

I swear, I just read about Pusha T commenting on the sequel. I forget where, but "Cruel Winter" wasn't mentioned. That would be a cool title, though, and I'd love to have that drop in the same year and season as (ugh) "SWISH" ...

I agree w/ that part. It's a Kanye album to me.

Severian 01.19.2016 11:16 PM

Swish... Swish... Swish...

I'm trying to say/type it so much that it stops sounding stupid, which I eventually worked for me with Yeezus.

I still think "Black American Psycho" would have been an EPIC and extremely apt title, considering how aggressive and panic-filled that album was. But Yeezus works... it definitely has a singular feel to it. Like, any number of rappers could name an album Black American Psycho, but who else could call an album Fucking Yeezus?

It's kind of a shame that such an awesome run of album titles is being ended with "Swish."
