Fairly recently, Big Sean joined the ranks of GOOD (Getting Out Our Dreams) Music – Kanye West’s record label, which features other artists such as John Legend, Consequence, Fonzworth Bentley, and Common.
I heard Big Sean for the first time on Kanye West’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing Mixtape, which featured his track “Get’cha Some.”* I was more than excited when I heard this track – Big Sean seems to be on the cusp of, or just past the cusp of, a truly unique sound. I’ll put it this way: Big Sean sounds like an incredible mix of dirty south flow, Kanye’s lyricism, and Lupe Fiasco’s delivery. It’s some pretty creative shit.
In November, Big Sean released the Finally Famous mixtape on the web. The mixtape features Kanye West, Mr. Bentley, DJ Mo Beatz, Big Shan, Pat Piff, Atone, and Mike Posner; even with all that collaborating, Big Sean’s mixtape is his own.
Some of my favorite tracks off Finally Famous include “You,” “Get’cha Some,” “A Million Dollars – Snippet,” “People Mover,” but the whole thing is pretty damn solid.
I’m truly very excited and enthusiastic about the future of this “new” hip hop artist and I can’t wait to see what he puts out next. What’s his debut album going to be like? I’m guessing something along the lines of “A Million Dollars” and “Get’cha Some.” If that’s the case, I think we’re going to have one hell of an album on our hands.
