Kanye West Unveils 'Cruel Winter' With Short Trailer

Kanye West Cruel WinterIt's been a Cruel Fall so far in the Northeast, but Kanye West is already looking ahead to Winter. The rapper has followed up his Cruel Summer mix tape with a Cruel Winter short. The film, directed by Austin Christianson for West's production Donda shows bare trees and trembling branches with other ghoulish accoutrement.

The footage also includes a speech by George H.W. Bush. The trailer suggests a feature on the way, but does not reveal any release date - only Coming Soon. Last time around, West's GOOD Music label released its Cruel Summer compilation. West then traveled to Cannes to debut his 30-minute short titled Cruel Summer.

West directed that film himself, with shots of Kid Cudi in the in the Gulf state of Qatar, using songs by Big Sean, John Legend, Raekwon and a remix of Coldplay's Paradise. The film has not had a wide release.

Rapper Q-Tip (a GOOD artist) hinted about the Cruel Winter album last month. "If there's a Cruel Summer then there's got to be a Cruel Winter, right?" he told MTV News. "That's all I'm saying."
