Kanye West and his GOOD Music crew will follow up last month's 'Cruel Summer' compilation with 'Cruel Winter', according to West's cohort Q-Tip.

The Rapper was asked why he hadn't appeared on 'Cruel Summer' by MTV at the BET Awards in Atlanta on Saturday (September 28), and let slip a sequel could be in the works.

Q-Tip said: "I know, I know, I'm sorry about that but I have to let the cat out of the bag. Kanye's probably gonna get…if there's a 'Cruel Summer' then there's got to be a 'Cruel Winter', right?"

'Cruel Summer', released September 18, contains 12 tracks in total and features all the acts signed to West's GOOD Music label including Mr Hudson, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, Pusha T and Big Sean.

The compilation album 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.

An experimental 30-minute film, 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.
