G.O.O.D. Music covers Complex‘s 2012 August/September issue! Starting at the top with Pusha T, followed by Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Common in a row, then Big Sean, John Legend, 2 Chainz, and Q-Tip. Hands down, these are all artists that I’m interested in hearing solo projects from before the year ends, but as they gear up for the release of their compilation album, Cruel Summer (to be released September 4th), it is only right that they cover Complex Magazine.
Kanye West is presently re-envisioning your world. That’s right, if the 35-year-old multi-disciplinary artist has his way, DONDA will rule everything around us. Seven-screen cinema, womenswear, menswear, design of all kind, even education—he has a plan for it all. But it starts with music. G.O.O.D. Music, to be specific. West has cultivated a wildly diverse range of talents—including John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Big Sean, Q-Tip, Mr. Hudson, Teyana Taylor, Cyhi, D’Banj, Hit-Boy and (unofficially) 2 Chainz—and will be releasing the ensemble’s first group album, Cruel Summer, this month. Complex assembled the massive—minus Kanye, who maintained his “no press” policy—for the first time to discuss this project, the crew’s creative chemistry, and West’s new world order.
