From Q-Tip‘s hints to Pusha T‘s clarification, Common tells Vulture that G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Winter compilation is probably not going to happen.
Does G.O.O.D. Music really have a Cruel Winter album coming?
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.
As far as his next album goes:
What can people expect?
New beginnings, new energy. You can expect to hear me rapping on music that you never heard me rapping on before. It’s gonna be fresh. It’s gonna be original.
Who’s working on that?
I’m definitely looking at some of the producers like Travi$ Scott, No I.D., 88-Keys, Hit-Boy. This has been the first time I’m open to working and not having just one, two producers and that’s it.
