Review: G.O.O.D. Music - Cruel Summer

Hip Hop is being dominated by a number of super crews at the moment: Maybach Music, Young Money/Cash Money and G.O.O.D. Music. Each with their own headline act Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Kanye West respectively. Much in the same way Maybach Music’s Self Made series of albums have helped to propel the label’s acts to a higher plateau (Wale’s debut album sold 28,000 in its first week of release versus his sophomore album Ambition, which was released after MMG’s Self Made, debuted at number 2 on the Billboard charts and is now close to being certified Gold), Cruel Summer aims to follow.

The album’s first single was “Mercy” - a certified banger. Through adlibs and a show stealing verse respectively, Big Sean and 2 Chainz (two rappers who are not necessarily known for their lyrical ability) bring exactly what a song like “Mercy” needs.


Click here to watch possibly the best reaction to “Cold”, which began life as "Theraflu" before becoming “Way Too Cold” until things were made alot simpler. Kanye provides a brilliant performance on this song, in which he goes at his foes and gets personal about his relationships. He attacks PETA in retaliation for their apparent attack on Kim, “Tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor,” as well as quashing the rumoured beef with Wiz Khalifa and how his relationship with Kim Kardashian started in addition to some harsh words for Kim's former husband Kris Humphries.

“And the whole industry want to fuck your old chick
Only nigga I got respect for is Wiz
And I'll admit, I had fell in love with Kim
Around the same time she had fell in love with him
Well that's cool, baby girl, do ya thang
Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team” – Kanye West

iAm1 - Wake You (Acoustic)
