It wouldn't be totally out of character for Kanye West to make fans suffer through the majority of the summer before dropping his G.O.O.D. music compilation Cruel Summer as some sort of demonstrative performance art, but it also wouldn't be surprising if he waited until the dead of winter to do the same thing, so pardon us if we (like Vulture) remain skeptical of Pusha T's announcement on Hot 97 yesterday that it would drop August 7 (via HipHopDX).

Things we know for sure:

While you don't hold your breath, we recommend checking out all the rejected 35th birthday stories SPIN offered up to Yeezy earlier this month.
