For what is shaping up to actually be a Cruel Summer, Big Sean has already hit the market hard this Spring with a slew of solid features (Meek Mill’s “Burn,” Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” and G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy”) and to keep up his momentum, the Detroit will attempt to capitalize off his latest success by dropping his much anticipated sophomore album. But here’s the catch, he currently doesn’t have a title as of yet. Speaking with XXL, the 24 year-old “Dance (Ass)” rapper discusses the idea of possibly naming the LP after one of his favorite ad-libs (“swerve”), and reveals a little detail concerning his first single’s producer.
On Considering “Swerve” as a Title:
“Swerve is just my adlib…it ain’t going to be the title of my next album. That’s a good- ass title though. I ain’t mad at it. That’s just something we made up. We’ve been saying that for years in the D, so yeah, it might be.”
On His First Single’s Producer, Key Wane:
“Key Wane actually produced my first single,” Sean said. “NO ID is probably executive producing, and he’s my A&R, him and Kanye, of course. Key Wane is from Detroit. We went to high school together; he was younger. He’s the first producer I signed, and he’s going to be legendary. I’m excited to be working with him.”
In related news, it was announced yesterday that Big Sean nabbed three nominations for the July 1st BET Awards show, including one for Best Male Hip Hop Artist, as well as also landing a guest spot on Justin Bieber’s forthcoming Believe album due out on June 19th. Peep that tracklisting here.
