The Summer Is His: Kanye Releasing ‘Cruel Summer’ Film & Album
Once again the summer belongs to Kanye! In a recent press release, it was announced that Yeezy’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is entitled Cruel Summer, and a film inspired by that same title will debut at this year’s festival on May 23 in Cannes.
According to Rap-Up, “The exhibit is said to be a combination of an art installation and a short film. It will include a 7Screen Experience, which Kanye first tweeted about in January. The hip-hop superstar produced, wrote, and directed the film, which was shot in Qatar earlier this year. Kid Cudi and Aziz Ansari are among the stars. Vanessa Beecroft handled production design and Elon Rutberg wrote the screenplay. Cruel Summer will remain open to the public for two days after its debut. Tickets are available on Kanye’s website.”
