Kanye West recently turned a night out at a New York City club into a “Cruel Summer” preview party. The “New York Post” reports the rapper was hanging out at the Dream Downtown’s PH-D Rooftop Lounge with fellow celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips Friday night when he decided to pay a visit to the DJ booth.
West just happened to have his laptop with him, so he hooked up to the speakers and treated clubgoers to a few new tracks from the highly anticipated G.O.O.D. Music compilation album. “Cruel Summer,” which is led by the singles “Mercy” and “New God Flow,” is scheduled to have its official release on September 4th.

Two Chainz also talks about his standing with G.O.O.D. Music, explaining that he may be an unofficial member of the team, but he still has a “great rapport” with West.

A “Cruel Summer” is bringing Kanye, Kim and Cannes together in the South of France. Rapper Kanye West and rumored girlfriend Kim Kardashian were on hand for the screening of Kanye’s 30-minute short film at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday. Inspired by Kanye’s upcoming compilation of the same name, MTV says the film — “Cruel Summer” — was projected onto seven screens inside a tented pyramid at the star-studded film showcase. The movie was written, produced and directed by West. It stars his fellow G.O.O.D. Music labelmate Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls for a blind Arabian princess. Kudi and Kanye’s Throne partner-in-rhyme Jay-Z were also present for the screening.
Kanye told reporters that the film is not quite finished. He said they were shooting it in Qatar less than a month ago and that he pushed hard to get it done in time for Cannes. West says he plans to take “Cruel Summer” to New York and back to Qatar to re-edit the “rough draft” after its non-competition run at the film festival. Check out photos below… READ MORE
