Kanye West might be planning a follow-up to Cruel Summer, his new G.O.O.D. Music album featuring a collection of tracks from artist-pals including Jay-Z, R. Kelly and 2 Chainz.

In an interview with MTV News, rapper Q-Tip teased, "If there's a Cruel Summer then there's got to be a Cruel Winter right? ... That's all I'm saying."

West released the record, on which he references girlfriend Kim Kardashian (and former CIA director George Tenet) in his Jay-Z collaboration "Clique," on Sept. 18, after which it hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 205,000 copies sold in week one.

West formed the G.O.O.D. label in 2004, producing albums for John Legend, Common and Big Sean, in addition to focusing on his solo rap career.
