The GOOD Music label boss puts a selection of song snippets online ahead of the record's release
Kanye West has previewed his 'Cruel Summer' compilation online by cutting together snippets of the tracks which feature on the record.
Scroll down to listen to excerpts from the album, which contains 12 tracks in all and features all the acts signed to West's GOOD Music label including Mr Hudson, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, Pusha T and Big Sean.
'Cruel Summer' also features guest appearances from R Kelly, who duets with West on the album opener 'To The World', West's 'Watch The Throne' partner Jay-Z, who guests on 'Clique' alongside Big Sean, and John Legend, who appears on the track 'Bliss' alongside Teyana Taylor. The album will be released on September 17.
An experimental 30-minute film inspired album, also titled Cruel Summer, made its debut in Cannes earlier this year. The film, which was projected onto seven screens inside a pyramid-shaped tent, stars hip-hop artist and actor Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls in love with a blind Arabian princess.
