Ever since Kanye West and his G.O.O.D music crew released Cruel Summer last year, rumours surrounding a Cruel Winter release have been rife.

Unfortunately, if Common's interview with Vulture is anything to go by, it seems it won't be happening and never was going to happen: "I don't think that's happening. It was more of a rumor cats been creating, but everybody's been doing their solo album. So that's what that is."

Fake Shore Drive have added to this: "All I know is that there's a gaggle of G.O.O.D. people in Paris right now working on something, and that something is likely Kanye's album."

I think we'd all prefer to hear a solo album over a collective one, but it's likely rumours of this nature will keep flying back and forth, all with different takes on the situation.
