Pusha T Confident That A "Cruel Winter" Compilation Album Could Have Happened

Although "Cruel Winter" was never released, Pusha T says he believes that the project could have happened.

It was at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards that chatter of a Cruel Winter compilation album began thanks to comments made by G.O.O.D. Music  artist Q-Tip. The project never came to fruition and talk of a Cruel Winter album eventually died down, but during an interview with MTV News, Pusha T shared that he believes there were in fact intentions to create the Cruel Summer follow-up.

The Clipse rapper also revealed that he had at least 15 verses, complete with accompanying beats, lined up for such a project.

“I believe that there were intentions for a Cruel Winter. And there’s so much music floating, but G.O.O.D. Music isn’t one to just piece a project together,” Pusha explained. “I can tell you right now, I have probably 15 verses that are just over beats that are laying around wherever Ye and his hard drive are right now.”

According to Pusha T, a number of other G.O.O.D. Music rappers likely also had verses ready if there were to be a Cruel Winter album.

“And I’m sure CyHi, Sean, Cudi, Tip, everybody has either production or verses on these records as well. But I think Ye really tries to keep the brand in it, keep it up to a certain standard. And piecing together a record like that it’s just not gonna work,” said Pusha T.

Although Cruel Winter was never released, Pusha T did finally release his much anticipated Wrath Of Caine mixtape earlier in the week.
