Common Says G.O.O.D. Music's "Cruel Winter" Will Not Be Released, Reveals Solo Album Producers

Common explains that G.O.O.D. Music's "Cruel Summer" sequel will not be released.

Members of the G.O.O.D. Music family including Q-Tip, Pusha T and Big Sean have all spoken on the crew's Cruel Winter album, which serves as the follow up to last year's Cruel Summer. But during an interview with Vulture, Common said that the compilation would not see the light of day and that its existence was more of a "rumor."

"Oh, yeah, nah, nah. I don't think that's happening," he said. "It was more of a rumor — cats been creating, but everybody's been doing their solo album. So that's what that is."

Common, who will release an EP, mixtape and solo album this year, also turned his attention to the latter, revealing which producers are in the mix. Though he says he'd "love" for Kanye West to contribute, he confirmed Travi$ Scott, No I.D., 88-Keys and Hit-Boy for the LP.

"I'm definitely looking at some of the producers like Travi$ Scott, No I.D., 88-Keys, Hit-Boy. This has been the first time I'm open to working and not having just one, two producers and that's it."

    Common needs to hook up Dj Premier, Large Pro, and Alchemist on top of Q-Tip, Kanye and No ID Then you have a classic nicca! You can tell 90% of these rappers failed chemistry in school is it only Canibus, Master P and Diddy thats got a College degree?

      @ The_Observer: Why Premo? Premo still sounds if its 1994. he didnt evolve as a producer. Im getting tired of same formulas. I wanna hear new producers. Besides why was common acting hard on his last record: i smash nikkas with a bottle im from the chi, i want a bitch who look and cooks good?????? Come on common always used to be a softie.

    Kanye needs to drop Common, Pusha-T, Q-Tip, and CyHi from GOOD. He also needs to stop associating with Cudi and Lupe. All GOOD Music needs is Kanye and Big Sean. YMCMB is the ultimate roster. Good Music has too much dead weight.

    Come on Kanye. You got the money. Pay to get some real talent besides that bald headed poet, a guy named after what you use to clean your ears with, and a supposed drug dealer with a jealousy complex.

    I hope NO ID and common link up like they did on the dreamer, they killed that one, one of my favorite cds of 2011. That was a very good album.
