It may appear that all Kanye West is doing these days is spending time with his new boo, Kim Kardashian. But the rising hip-hop mogul is keeping busy these days.

West just recently announced a title for his new compilation album.  “Cruel Summer” is the name of his new music project and it will be accompanied by a film of the same name.

According to, the film is inspired by the album and was written, produced and directed by West. The film, starring Kid Cudi, will debut at this year Cannes Film Festival and is being billed as a “seven-screen experience.”

West has already released three singles from the album and so far has received nothing but good reviews. He has also added Teyana Taylor to his G.O.O.D Music label.

The Harlem-born rapper-singer-actress created quite a buzz in 2008 with her single “Google Me” and was also featured on West’s 2012 song “Dark Fantasy.” Looks like Kanye will have his hands full in the coming months!

Tell us what you think about the album-film combination?
