Pusha T confirms G.O.O.D. Music album is on the way and shares how he got Jay Z on Drug Dealers Anonymous

Updated: 

It's been four years since Cruel Summer was released, featuring a whole host of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music roster from Big Sean to John Legend, those no longer signed to the label like Common and Kid Cudi, as well as affiliates such as 2 Chainz, Chief Keef and various Wu-Tang members.

Now Pusha T, the newly appointed G.O.O.D. Music President, has revealed the second collective album is on the way. And if this Instagram post from producer Fonzworth Bentley - the man credited with turning Kanye's Ultralight Beam into what it is - is anything to go by, it's to be called Cruel Winter.

Explaining to Genius following the release of Drug Dealers Anonymous how he got 48-bars from Jay Z in 2016 - rapping about his days dealing coke no less - Push said: "I was coming to Los Angeles to work on the G.O.O.D. Music album and play Kanye some new things I'd been working on. I played him 'Drug Dealers Anonymous' and I said, 'I want Hov on this.' He was like, 'Oh man. That would be fire'."

Push then went on to share the email thread where he convinced Hov to hop on the track, where he says the first interaction involved him sending over his verse and the beat.

The news reporter that called you a 14-year drug dealer, this was the inspiration behind it. Here's my verse. I left some extra beat for you. Let me know what you think either way.

Man, there's nothing wrong with telling ghost stories. We need them. We love them. We love these things.

After a break in the communication, during which Jay likely began crafting his verse, he hit Pusha back.

Oh this is going to be bad. Oh this is going to be real, real bad. I'll just blame it all on you.

Ok, that's fine.

Jay takes the night to finish his verse and responds the next morning.
