Kanye West released the first single from the upcoming Cruel Winter, the sequel to 2012's Cruel Summer. The song features an extensive guest list that also functions as a who's who of rap in 2016: Big Sean, Desiigner, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Migos' Quavo, and Yo Gotti all turn up on the track. The song which has two working titles, "Round and Round," and "Champions," was debuted during Big Boy's Neighborhood on Los Angeles radio station 92.3 this past Friday. As of yet, the song has not been made officially available for purchase and streaming, although we have a handy stream for you below.
You can also check out Big Boy's full interview with Kanye West, where he drops the single, discusses his Taylor Swift reference on Life of Pablo's "Famous," and Big Boy joins Kanye for a rap-along to "30 Hours." In the interview, Kanye says there's a 12-15 minute version of the new single that features the entire GOOD Music roster. Kanye also revealed he plans to tour this year. Watch the full interview below.
In related news, Kanye's headlining set at New York City's Governor's Ball, that was scheduled for yesterday, was canceled due to storm warnings. Following the cancellation, West attempted to organize a very last-minute show at Webster Hall to cheer up his fans. That show, however, never took off. While West told fans the show would start at 2 am, and later tweeted the show had sold out, it seems the East Village venue's capacity and management were not up to the task of hosting the mob of Kanye fans descending on their doorsteps.
