News: Pusha T Gives Ice Cold Response To "Cruel Winter" Question
Monday, Oct 8, 2012 8:05PM
G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T has pleaded the fifth and kept quiet after recent rumblings of a Kanye West-helmed Cruel Winter album possibly in the works.
Rather than declare yay or nay, Pusha vowed to be a team player for the G.O.O.D. Music team.
It may be fine for Q-Tip to drop hints on G.O.O.D. Music's future, but Pusha T is keeping his lips sealed -- maybe we can get more out of him when he appears on "RapFix Live" this Wednesday. "I don't know, you know Tip one of the generals, so if Tip says it's gonna be a Cruel Winter, he can make that call. I'm just here," Push told MTV News on the red carpet of the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, just moments after the former A Tribe Called Quest frontman hinted to us that Yeezy may be dropping a Cruel Summer follow-up very soon.

Last week, G.O.O.D. Music's Teyana Taylor heated up the Internet with Cruel Winter talk.
"It's been a cruel, cruel summer.," she tweeted October 1st.

Prior to her tweets, fellow G.O.O.D. Music member Q-Tip hinted at a follow-up.
After struggling to explain why he didn't appear on CS, Tip, who was flanked by his G.O.O.D. cohort Pusha T, just spilled the beans. "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...," the former A Tribe Called Quest frontman said before stopping mid-sentence to call over Pusha T to help him with the big news. "If there's a Cruel Summer then there's got to be a Cruel Winter right?" Q-Tip said, alluding that the G.O.O.D. crew will be following up with another album soon. "That's all I'm saying." (MTV)
