Pusha T dropped by Hot 97 on Wednesday to say that a) another Clipse album will one day be a part of your life, and b) Cruel Summer, the collaboration record from Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music crew, will drop August 7. Will the festival title nail the record — which bears the same name as Kanye's seven-screen Cannes film experience — to summer for sure? We still haven't forgotten the January 2011 declaration, "Watch the Throne is dropping next week!" eight long months before its release.
