Big Sean crashed the interview for a minute in the beginning, and the two reveal that they will be linking up in the studio soon. They also spoke on making it as a black man in America, and Sean went off.
“We’re young black men from America. Do you know what that means? That means none of this s**t is promised to us, man. These watches, these whatever the f**k we like, taking care of our families, this s**t ain’t promised out here. We gotta work, and I work like I’m a f*****g slave.”
Big Sean left for part-two of the interview, and it’s back to just Vince and Tim Westwood. They talk about Vince’s upcoming project, the recent/past racial shootings in America, and Vince’s simple life back home.
At the end of the interview, Vince shows his respect for Tim Westwood’s interview style over the other interviewers/reporters that he’s sat down with. Vince even compares Westwood to the police.
“If every police officer acted and kinda took their job the way Tim Westwood takes their job, nothing in the world bad would happen. You’re just out here havin’ fun, doin’ it for the people bro. And that’s the difference between you and the police.”
Peep the two-part interview below and stay on the lookout for the Vince x Sean Don collab.
A$AP Ferg finally released the visual for “World Is Mine” off of his latest record, Always Strive and Prosper. A$AP Mob’s videos are the best in the game, which inevitably sets the bar high. The video features Ferg and Big Sean ballin out in an ocean-view mansion, dappered in late 80/90’s attire. It’s lit.
Just days after the surprise announcement of their joint venture, Detroit rapper Big Sean and Los Angeles songstress Jhene Aiko have joined forces to create a musical duo titled TWENTY88. The eight-track album, available to stream exclusively through TIDAL for four days, and fans can download it at other digital retailers including Apple Music.
According to Rap-up, the album combines ’90s R&B and ’70s experimental rock and soul, explores the highs and lows of a relationship, while delving into conflict, memories, love, and sex. K-Ci & JoJo appear on the Detail-produced “2 Minute Warning,” with additional production from Key Wane and Tommy Brown.
“Music now doesn’t really cater to the feelings of a real relationship,” Aiko recently told Flaunt. “It’s all about trapping and bragging. I feel like this project is something that’s needed right now…Especially a whole project, is just good for people to see. That duality is a perfect combination.
A couple days ago, Big Sean celebrated his 28th birthday, and dropped an introspective new track. “Get My Shit Together” features a minimal type beat which gives Big Sean the opportunity to spit some deep game. Sean speaks on his journey to success with an effortless flow, which he switches up halfway through the track. Sean shows off his lyrical versatility while talking about his hopes for the future. It’s easy to see Big Sean is in his own mind throughout the song, and it makes for another dope track from the GOOD Music artist.
Fortunately, one track just wasn’t enough for Sean Don, as there has also been a press release for a new collab album featuring Big Sean and R&B talent Jhene Aiko. This new album will be a conceptual effort from the two artists featuring production from producers Key Wane, Detail and Tommy Brown. The new collaborative project Twenty 88 will be a Tidal exclusive which will release April 1st.

To say the 2015-2016 NYE was “good” would be a very grand understatement given the release of a few new tracks from some of these greats. To start off the year, we were given a Big Sean track to reflect on 2015 featuring Pharell & Detail titled “What a Year”, followed by 2 new tracks from La Flame Travis Scott’s “A-Team” & “Wonderful” featuring none other than The Weeknd, that originally premiered in Seattle during the fall of 2015 with snippets running rampant til its release. Last, but surely not least, a single tweet earlier that night from Mrs. Kim Kardashian-West had the internet buzzing over her tweeting “YEEZY, YEEZY, YEEZY, NEW SONG ABOUT TO DROP #FACTS”, only a few hours later the ball dropped as Kanye West released his controversial track “Facts” to ring in 2016. Taking shots at Nike, celebrating his record-breaking Addidas Yeezy line numbers & “Jumpin’ over Jumpman” he goes off on the track. We can only hope this is the first of what’s to come from Sean Don, La Flame, Ye, and the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music family for 2016. Bump all the tracks below.
