Big Sean is having quite a day. Less than 24 hours ago, news broke that the Detroit MC made the move to Roc Nation management. When asked why he made the move Sean said, "People are really personally involved. Hov is really personally involved." To clarify, he's still happily signed to Def Jam and G.O.O.D. Music and continuing to work with his big bro, Kanye West​, who obviously cosigned the maneuver over to Roc. Sean also went on record to say that G.O.O.D. Music is in great standing.

To add steam to his momentum, Sean dropped a collection of four new tracks, which you can check out here. He kept the features light, only employing E-40 and pulling in production from big names like Key Wane, Mike WiLL Made It, DJ Dahi, DJ Mustard and Kanye. Plus, he's launching a sneaker collab with adidas, and despite all of his success, he spends a considerable amount of time giving back to his community.

Check out the interview above and listen to Big Sean's newest drops.
