Cruel Summer’s release culminates months of work within the G.O.O.D. Music camp. Kanye’s presence can definitely be felt, yet the project allows the whole crew—veterans and newcomers alike—to shine. From Common and John Legend, to Cudi, Sean and Pusha, even D’Banj, Teyana Taylor, CyHi, and Malik Yusef, all of their Cruel Summer contributions made a mark in the halls of hip-hop history. Affiliates loom on nearly every track, leaving us wondering who will officially join G.O.O.D. Music next?
