Kanye West shares first Cruel Winter single

Listen to the guest-heavy 'Round and Round'

Kanye West has shared the first single from upcoming album Cruel Winter. Presumably the follow-up to 2012’s Cruel Summer, the track was premiered on Los Angeles’ Real 92.3 radio station.

The song features a wealth of guests including Desiigner, Quavo, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Yo Gotti, and Big Sean.

After the song was played, Kanye revealed that there’s a longer version of it on the way. “We’re going to do a version of that song with 12 or 15 minutes, everybody,” he said.



West also commented that the song features “the Avengers of rap” and said that he’s planning to set out on a world tour, beginning in September.

Yesterday (June 2) Kanye West appeared in a video with Schoolboy Q for their video for ‘THat part’. The pair jump around a house surrounded by a crew in the video, which is edited with some trippy visual effects. At one point, West even halts a school bus and starts rapping in front of it.

Last month, tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment was reported to have been stolen from Kanye West’s studio. According to TMZ, the police believe the crime was committed by someone Kanye knows, although they don’t have any suspects as yet.
