You caught Kanye’s short film Cruel Summer at Cannes earlier this year, right? The one that starred Kid Cudi and Pusha T as Lamborghini thieves in a parallel Arabian universe and played simultaneously across seven screens? Well brace yourselves, fans, because Yeezy just released a trailer for the sequel, Cruel Winter.

Is Mitt Romney rap’s most beleaguered target? It’s starting to look that way.
Shortly after Nicki Minaj fake-supported the Republican on her “Mercy” redo, Kanye West has inserted a Romney reference of his own on his new G.O.O.D. Music album.
“Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax,” ‘Ye declares on Cruel Summer‘s opener “To the World,” which also features R. Kelly. The next line? “Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax.” We thinks Kanye’s trying to tell us something!
West, of course, has a colorful history regarding leading Republicans, so this should make for a fun election year. And while it’s certainly headline-grabbing, the Romney line might not even be the most intriguing quote in the song. R. Kelly, for instance, sneaks in a gem with “The whole world is a couch / Bitch, I’m Rick James tonight,” while Kanye raises eyebrows with the line, “R. Kelly and the god of rap / S—tin’ on you, holy crap.” (If you recall, R. Kelly was once famously accused of urinating on women.)
Anyway, enough with the chit-chat. Listen to the song for yourself! Check out the video below and get back to us in the comments.
