Is Cruel Winter On The Cards?

If Q-Tip is involved this time, we’d surely hope so! In a chat with MTV News at the BET Awards, Q-Tip suggested that there could be a follow-up Cruel Summer. He dropped the hint saying “I gotta let the cat out of the bag. Am I going to get in trouble? If there’s a Cruel Summer, then there’s gotta be a Cruel Winter, right?”. That sounds like a yes to me but we won’t quote him on that. Tip and Yasiin Bey (who have yet to release albums under the label) were notably absent from Cruel Summer, with speculation about Q-Tip’s ego getting in the way of featuring. If they were both missing again, I’d question their purpose on the label besides features on other tracks, which would seem an insane waste of talent. But who’s to say they won’t? Let’s just hope Winter is better than Summer for once.
