Kanye West gives us “Round & Round” with a gang of artists plus two new Gucci Mane verses as the first track from Cruel Winter.

Out in Los Angeles, Kanye West shared the first single from Cruel Winter. It’s called “Round & Round,” and it features Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Desiigner, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, Travis $cott & Quavo of The Migos.

“Round & Round” was premiered on Big Boy’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood Real 92.3 show earlier this morning; and as Big Boy pointed out, it captures “magic in a bottle.” There are 2 (!) new verses from Gucci Mane, one of which includes the choice line, “Now that Gucci home, it’s over for you Gucci clones.”

Technically, the song isn’t even titled “Round & Round.” “I had the basic beat for a year and a half. It sounded right for this project,” Kanye told Big Boy. “This is the hook we should have for the first single.”

Feeling the rather impulsive nature of collaborations, Kanye said, “A lot of times it’s just the energy in the studio, whoever is coming by. And then we get to talk about who would sound nice on the track.”

Stream “Round & Round” below.

UPDATE (6/12): “Champions” hit iTunes on Sunday night. The track is produced by Lex Luger, A-Trak, Mike Dean & Charlie Heat. You can hear the explicit/CDQ version below.
