Back in April, the Internet was abuzz and it had nothing to do with race relations in America, the NHL playoff picture or Mitt Romney’s promise to win the state of Pennsylvania in November. No, the buzz was about the first single from Kanye West’ forthcoming G.O.O.D Music compilation album. Mercy, produced by newly-signed in-house producer Lifted, finds Ringmaster Ye and his lablemate friends doing what they do best—stunting on the competition and taking no prisoners. Trying to outdo one another (alongside their label boss) are Mr. Finally Famous Big Sean, whose creatively ignorant rhymes sound as fresh as always, Pusha T, who many will clamor gave the best performance, and recent label addition 2 Chainz. There is no set release date for the label’s compilation album Cruel Summer, but The Island Def Jam Music Group has said the album is on their summer calender.
