Kanye West is a definite on Big Sean's upcoming album. During a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Big Sean talked about who was in and who was still up in the air--noting that Nicki Minaj was still in the latter of the two categories.
"You gotta wait and see," was his response when asked if 2 Chainz was on board.
When Kanye West was mentioned, however, Big Sean had lots to say.
“Yeah, he took time,” Big Sean said about Kanye West. “That guy right there he took his time out. That’s an OG, man. Shout out to the boy. Shout out to the homie.”
Big Sean also said his new album will be both 'harder' and 'darker.'
“I feel like these records are just harder, man,” he told HotNewHipHop. “I try different things all the time and I feel like this one’s more intense as far as just the raps are at a high level. I’m just making it something that I wanna do. Something that’s probably a little bit darker than the last one. Yeah, it’s gonna be good though. We getting it ready for you. It’s almost ready…We got some crazy ones on there, man. Even that ‘Paradise’ verse. I feel like that verse was—That’s a wild one right there.”
Big Sean has released a handful of records in the past few weeks. The most noteworthy is the E-40-assisted track, “I Don’t Fuck With You.”
HipHopDX asked him why he chose E-40 for the record. He admitted to having been a fan of E-40 for quite some time, adding that the rapper was a perfect fit for the new record.
Apparently Kanye West is a perfect fit, too, since he's a definite on Big Sean's new album. Do you suppose Kanye will get wife Kim Kardashian on board for one of Big Sean's music videos? Does Big Sean get a Keeping Up With the Kardashians bonus--sexy appearances from Kim and maybe even Khloe Kardashian--for featuring Kanye on his record?
