Kanye West Talks About the Creation of “Cruel Summer”

Kanye West discusses the creation and process of his newest album “Cruel Summer’ with his artists Big Sean, Common, Teyana Taylor and Pusha T. He delves into detail about how the process works saying, “I like when I get mad at music because it’s so good. It’s like, oh shit, why didn’t we think of that? Why didn’t we do that?” he said. “I’m not interested in things unless they hit me in a certain place in my heart and my gut. I get bored very easily. I’m majorly underwhelmed in general. I’m looking for some form of excitement for this music to be our outlet.” His gives meticulous attention to everything from a song to the cover art of the track, “One track might have 30 people’s opinions on it. It’s not just about a tracklist and a name. It’s about the communal style of work,” he explained. “We spend just as much time working on the actual album packaging, the video concept, the song… Everything is equally as important. It got to a point where I had to have the artwork in front of me while I was working on the songs, and I would listen and say, ‘Does this song sound like this packaging looks?'” He adds, “This isn’t the beginning of the conversation, this isn’t the end of the conversation. It’s our offering as a collective of a sonic snapshot of what’s happening right now, 2012.”
