Moments before Big Sean dropped four new songs, the Detroit rapper sat down with Miss Info to talk about his management deal at Roc Nation, watching the riots in Ferguson with Kanye West, and his upcoming album.
Although he wouldn't reveal an album title or a release date, Big Sean said he wants people to hear his new material. "We got so much music but the four songs are just the very tip of the iceberg. Just to set the tone. We did the new deal with Roc Nation for management, but it’s still G.O.O.D. Music. Don’t ever get that confused,” Sean said. “I get to kick with with Jay Brown and Jay Z and play them my music. That’s priceless to sit down with them, along with ‘Ye."
Big Sean also described what it was like watching the Ferguson riots with Kanye. "I rap about it on “4th Quarter," about how we was in Mexico, about how we saw Ferguson," he said. "Me and ‘Ye were looking at the footage of the riots in St. Louis. We just sat there and stopped– we were blown away. It was really sad but good to see people not accept it... It was a crazy moment to witness. It's always crazy witnessing history right before your eyes." He went on to add, "Sometimes you don't realize how historical things are until you look back on it. This felt like history in front of my eyes."
As far as the vibe of his new album, Big Sean claims he's going for blood. "I’m not fucking around, This is that Detroit snappin’ off on ‘em," he said. "That's where it is for me now in rap."
