Kanye West’s Cruel Summer Cover Art and Release Date

Kanye West’s compilation album has a release of September 4th now, and they’ve released some cover art from the album. As expected, it’s full of ancient Gods/Godesses symbolism. The amount of religious symbolism in the artwork is well disproportionate to the actual amount of religious sentiment discussed on the album. Lyrics typically express love for material objects, wealth, fame, women, or even just flat out mockery of Jesus Christ. It seems that Kanye’s affiliations with Illuminati and Jay-Z have overcome his previous “Jesus Walks” days (see this post for more on Kanye’s fall: https://illuminatiwatcher.com/?p=3119).

Album artwork depicts an ancient goddess, as found in the Roman Empire and/or Greek ancient pagan religions.

Roman Pagan Goddess Ceres:

Note the symmetry in the image; satanism (and/or Illuminati, depending upon your beliefs) and masonic imagery generally always depicts symmetry or reversals, or other mirror images in their symbolism. Take the inverted cross for instance.


And ironically (and slightly off point) take a look at the Coretta Scott King (wife of MLK) award given to African American illustrators and authors who portray African American culture through books to the youth, it features that pyramid and an inverted cross right on there! Also, see this post regarding the new MLK assassination conspiracy theory film starring Hugh Jackman (https://illuminatiwatcher.com/?p=3129) :

Here’s another image, I’m not sure if this is on the album or not (do people really buy CDs all that much anymore??):



And then for some good old fashion Christian mockery, here’s a cross formation on the cover of Complex. Maybe it’s not mockery, but judging by the lyrics I’m guessing it is. And also, just as FYI, I’m not being hoity-toity Christian here, I actually love to listen to Kanye, Big Sean, Pusha T, etc. and I am a Christian-albeit not a good one because I love the vulgar stuff, but let’s not get into that discussion of my personal tastes, beliefs, etc., we’ll be here all day. I’m just pointing out that there’s something going on here behind the scenes that most people aren’t getting.


Press release for the album:

(July 23, 2012 – New York, NY)  As “Mercy” – G.O.O.D. Music’s smash platinum single and lead track from the upcoming CRUEL SUMMER album – reigns at #1 at Urban radio for the fourth consecutive week, Kanye West’s collective drops its next banger: “New God Flow,” featuring Kanye and Pusha T, and produced by West.”New God Flow” is currently available at all digital music retailers and services, including kanyewest.com <http://www.kanyewest.com/> . CRUEL SUMMER is set for an September 4th release on G.O.O.D. Music / Def Jam Recordings.

“Mercy” – the future-trap anthem featuring Big Sean, Pusha T, Kanye West and 2 Chainz –  sits for the fourth week at #1 at Urban and rockets to #5 as this week’s Greatest Gainer at Rhythm on the strength of over 61 million in total audience nationwide. This marks Kanye’s ninth #1 single at the Urban format, including – most recently – “Otis” and “Paris” from West’s landmark collaboration with Jay-Z, WATCH THE THRONE. The G.O.O.D. Music crew performed “Mercy” at the BET Awards in Los Angeles. The track has sold over 1.2 Million copies.

CRUEL SUMMER, the musical companion and inspiration for West’s acclaimed 7-Screen cinematic experience, is one of the most hotly anticipated albums of the summer. The CRUEL SUMMER film saw its debut in Cannes in May, and drew reactions like “groundbreaking,” “gorgeous,” “ambitious,” immersive,” and “unique” from the press in attendance. Further details on the G.O.O.D. Music album will be revealed in the coming weeks.

  1. Great article – why is it that the cross of Calvary is always mocked openly and the public takes so very little offense to it?

    Oh yeah: because it’s the gospel that is offensive (1 Cor. 1:18) and not, say, Jay or Kanye’s blaspheming and vulgarity.

    After stumbling upon your very informative blog, I was pleased (if not slightly surprised) to hear you’re a believer in Christ, but I have a sincere question to ask you: how is that you in good conscience can “love the vulgar stuff” and listen to your self-proclaimed Lord and Saviour being mocked?

    We as believers are all going to stand before the bema judgment seat of Christ and give an account for everything done in the body – what will you say to a holy and righteous Judge on that day when he asks you about your musical tastes? Do you think he will laugh that you love a band called Nine Inch Nails (whom I also enjoyed before Christ saved me)? You do realize what ‘nails’ are being referenced, right?

    Or what about Mr. Icke, who once claimed that he is “the” son of God? Can his “truth” possibly be reconciled with the Gospels? Sure, there may be information in them that can shed some light on the world’s machinations, but you do understand that he advocates secular humanism, right? Which is just a fancy way of saying he’s a Luciferian.

    Study to show yourself approved, a workman that need not be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth. 2. Tim. 2:15

    Grace and peace,

    • Ian-valid point. I’ve corrected my article to rephrase it more proper 🙂 But yea, I’ve grown up listening to and watching the darker side of art so it’s one of those things that I acknowledge the faults in, yet can’t deny the draw and fascination that I have for them. As far as Icke (and all of the other material found on this website), I think we need to explore every possibility and either it will change our views, or solidify our beliefs. It’s all a journey to figure it out.

  2. Whoever owns this website, you need to DENOUNCE David Icke. David Icke is anti-Christ, he lies about jesus Christ in every single one of his books, and changes his story nonstop about him.

    There are no “shapeshifting reptilians”. They are DEMONS from the pit of hell walking around us, and FALLEN ANGELS pretending to be humans. Their true forms will be revealed soon.

    The thing is, ICKE IS ONE OF THEM. he’s been exposed giving the freemason handshake on project camelot (project camelot is a tool of the devil as well, all lies), and there is footage of his eyes and face shifting on youtube.

    RENOUNCE DAVID ICKE. If you are a Christian, you will NOT love the world, and especially NOT love that which is offensive or balsphemous to the Lord Jesus Christ.

    make no mistake, the original commenter is correct, we will ALL be judged by God’s holy laws, whether we called ourselves “christians” or not, what matters to him is how we LIVE. “Not all that say unto me “lord Lord” shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but those that do the will of my father in heaven”.

    Who’s your father IlluminatiWatcher? The Devil? Or God almighty?
