Talk about mixed news coming from the G.O.O.D Music camp recently. While Pusha T, Hit-Boy and Common are all vehemently denying that Cruel Winter is in the works, the new kid at G.O.O.D., Travis $cott, is saying otherwise.
The 20-year old Houston born rapper/producer told DJ Semtex in a recent interview (via HHW ) that there is in fact a Cruel Winter single coming soon titled “I Got Bands.” “I Got Bands” is the s—-! I love that f—ing song man. You know, it’s the first single off of Cruel Winter and my tape Owl Pharaoh, man,” he told DJ Semtex. “Hopefully we get that feature on there and it’s just like, ‘Boom, we outta here! Kanye seen the vision for that s—, we just supplied it and we made it happen.”
Q-Tip and Big Sean have both hinted at the album but Common shot that all down. In a recent interview with NY Mag he said “Oh, yeah, nah, nah. I don’t think that’s happening. It was more of a rumor — cats been creating, but everybody’s been doing their solo album. So that’s what that is.”
Even though Common was quick to shut it down here’s what Big Sean had to say to MTV News in mid-December, “Everybody always says I spilled the beans, everybody be like, ‘You be talking too much, you be telling me people too much’ — but it was Q-Tip who said it, right? And then I just said it again.”
So, is Cruel Winter on the way or what?
