Aside from a couple of G.O.O.D. Music artist’s confirming that the project does indeed exists, no real information has been leaked about the Cruel Winter project until now. The follow of to the G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer is possibly more anticipated that it’s predecessor, with Kanye West and the legendary Q-Tip are the head of it all. Check out the Cruel Winter Short Film below.
This Austin Christianson directed short film was released on Halloween night. Although Def Jam has denied that it has any affiliation with this ever elusive project, it definitely has the internet buzzing.
Over the footage is former President George H.W. Bush’s speech “Toward a New World Order,” delivered on television on January 16, 1991 to address the Gulf War. “We have before us, the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order,” Bush’s voice narrates. “A world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful — and we will be — we have a real chance at this new world order.”
