Kanye West’s ‘Cruel Summer’ Album/Film: 5 Safe Assumptions…

Kanye West’s upcoming G.O.O.D. Music label compilation will be titled Cruel Summer, and he’ll be premiering a film of the same name on May 23 at the Cannes Film Festival in France, Island Def Jam has announced.

Created by West and his recently formed fashion venture, Donda, the film will be shown on seven screens and is being touted as a mix of short film and art installation. A poster promoting the event says West directed and co-wrote the film, and it will feature both rapper Kid Cudi and comedian Aziz Ansari. Cruel Summer will be showing for two days, and tickets are available through West’s website.

The Cannes premiere follows a few weeks after the video for West’s “Lost in the World,” from 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The film also comes as West ramps up the publicity for his G.O.O.D. comp, releasing a star-studded remix of Chicago rapper Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” on the heels of his own “Way Too Cold” (née “Theraflu”) and posse cut “Mercy.” (More via SPIN…)
