With only a few precious days of summer left, Kanye West and his musical brethren make good on their G.O.O.D. Music promise and will drop their highly-anticipated comp album Cruel Summer on September 18. The album, like all new millennium releases however, leaked onto the Internet early Thursday (September 13) morning.
Over the past few months ‘Ye has rolled out a few cuts from Cruel Summer (including “Cold,” “Mercy,” “New God Flow,” “I Don’t Like (Remix)” and most recently “Clique”) so fans have already heard a good portion of the album, but then there are a few new listens like the amazing intro track “To the World” featuring R. Kelly.
Hopefully fans will still hit iTunes on September 18 to officially purchase the album, but in the meantime here’s what the mixed reviews on Twitter have looked like:
