06.03.16: Cruel Winter is coming.

Sure, it’s the start of summer, but if more G.O.O.D. Music collabs hit, we’re all sitting pretty til the winter anyway. “Round & Round (Champions)” is a solid start that spreads the wealth: you see the names, including the recently released Gucci Mane which surprised me. I think the highlights here are Kanye’s opening verse to set the tone, some clever Big Sean lines, and a hook that was already growing on me within the song. Even more than any of those, perhaps, is the production with some synths that actually remind me of a Miami summer and would be great to have blasting with the windows down. And with the NBA Finals going on, I can definitely see “Champions” landing quick into the Oracle Arena for G2…

Enough chatter, here’s the radio rip as Kanye premiered it on Big Boy.

And actually, I shoulda mentioned 2 Chainz too. He was good here.

And here are some more exciting tidbits from Kanye’s interview with Big Boy:

 

I hope this album drops in the summer. For ironic purposes as much as that the music would be here sooner.
