In an interview with Blogionista, CyHi the Prynce revealed that Cruel Winter could be out as early as this year. "We in negotiations with Def Jam," he revealed. "Sometimes they're extra slow. We're looking to put it out this year."

MissInfo.TV observed that CyHi joins Big Sean, Q-Tip, and Travi$ Scott in taking an optimistic view of the record's chances, while Common and Hit-Boy have been more circumspect. Also worth taking into account: Kanye West just had a child, which could obviously be an impediment to hasty record production.

We have yet to contact an astrologist for more exacting predictions of the likelihood that Cruel Winter will see a 2013 release date.
