Without sounding like an overly dramatic teenage girl in a clichéd movie, we’re not sure who to believe anymore. In recent weeks, Common, Hit-Boy and Pusha T have all dismissed notions that the long-speculated second G.O.O.D. Music album, Cruel Winter, will actually see the light of day. The Grammy Family’s youngest member, Travi$ Scott, argues otherwise, though. Backing up his subliminal tweets from a few days ago, the 20-year-old rapper/producer told Complex that the record is “happening for real.” Scott prefixed that by saying he’s been hanging out with Kanye West in Paris, so that’s the closest to confirmation from ‘Ye we’ve got so far.
I was just in Paris f**king with ‘Ye and playing him s**t [from ‘Owl Pharaoh’]. I don’t wanna talk too much, but Cruel Winter is happening for real. F**k what ni**as is talking about, that s**t is for real. That s**t is happening for sure.
In other, more concrete news, Travi$ Scott’s much talked-about debut project, Owl Pharaoh, is set to drop Feb. 22. He also revealed to Complex that he has features from Bon Iver and Toro Y Moi, and promised it will be “nuts.”
