While scrolling the blogs last night for new music, I see a new Big Sean record – well I thought it was a Big Sean record – titled “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar and a ghost named Jay Electronica. I’m finishing this writing prompt and listening to Sean on the first verse when I get a phone call. I stop what I’m doing and take it because she’s great and almost forget about the song until my phone starts blowing up with messages like, “did you hear it?” and “bruh…why’d he do that?” I get a missed call from one of my boys who usually hits me whenever something really dope is happening Hip-Hop wise. We may have talked for about fifteen more minutes and as soon as we hung up, I called him back. I can’t remember the exact introduction but I’m pretty sure I ended it with, “Look, I gotta hear this verse and get back to you.” Twitter was blowing up, it just seemed like a moment – one of those moments as a fan of Hip-Hop culture – I needed to witness in real time.
The song, well verse, that set Twitter on fire last night. We get really good verses from Sean and Jay Elec here, but they were out-shined, outdone and outworked by Kendrick.
Prepping for the release of his new project, Big Sean releases the visual for his new song, “Fire.” The video features Miley Cyrus (no twerking) surrounded by symbolism explained on Sean’s instagram:
I teamed up w/ Miley Cyrus for this video because she’s somebody who’s had a personal evolution as a lot of us have had. Besides all the personal stories I tell in the song…there are so many other ways people can make it through the fire. I think Miley did a great job as a metaphor for strong women, being a strong bperson after heartbreak (hence the burning pic that could symbolize her old romance), or maybe even deeper problems, but in the end remaining as elegant as a rose.
“New Flows Got New Flows?” In anticipation for the 4th Annual OVO Fest Drake drops “All Me” featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean. His new project Nothing Was The Same is due out September 17th.
Fans have been waiting for this song since he performed it in London a week ago. With less than a month until his new project Hall of Fame drops, he teamed up with Samsung to put out the CDQ version of “Fire.” Here he continues the wave of highlighting his rap journey with the enthusiastic chant laid under him. Hall of Fame will be out on August 27th.
Big Sean lets go of another single from Hall of Fame. You can see the trailer for his second album after the jump.
For Big Sean, nothing is more important than family. In this new video blog he takes us from Paris to Detroit speaking about the importance surrounding yourself with a great team. His new project, Hall of Fame is set to drop in June.
Under direction of the illRoots boys Mike Waxx and Mike Carson, G.O.O.D. Music representative, Big Sean, takes us to the D and shows us how the real players get it poppin’ in his stomping grounds–of course, he’s winning over his enemies, too. Cut produced by the most over-used beatmaker of 2012, Young Chop. Spotted on Sean’s official Facebook.
