G.O.O.D. Music’s Q-Tip accidentally let the cat out of the bag over recent talk of an upcoming Cruel Winter compilation and confirmed he will be on the star-studded project.
While he would not give out too many details, Tip said fans can expect him on Cruel Summer‘s follow-up.
“We’re just trying to do some next ‘ish, you know what I’m saying?,” Tip said in an interview when asked about working with Kanye West. “Look out for the Pusha T album, the Big Sean album’s coming up next. [Can you expect me on Cruel Winter?] Oh yeah, for sure. I can’t really, [laughs], let out too much details about it but yeah, I’ll be on it. Kanye had the plan for that, so look out.” (Hip Hop Since 1978)
A few weeks back, Tip broke the news of a possible follow-up being in the works.
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)
