The G.O.O.D. Music Star discussed his sophomore drop recently.
In an interview with Complex, Big Sean revealed that an impressive line up of producers will be appearing on his second album. Big Sean would reveal little about the album’s release date, and was also keeping mum on the subject of album features. However, he was keen to talk about the production side of things, and did reveal that a single will be with is shortly.
"We just got the first single. I’m not going to tell you who’s all on it. Dope ass artists on it, though, for sure." he hinted. "It’s great. It’s something that connects. When I was playing it for Common, he was losing his mind. J. Cole was blown away. It really is elevating, taking it to a different level. I don’t even want to hype it up or talk too much like, 'Yeah, my album is the shit!' I just can’t wait for everyone to hear what I’ve been doing, what I’ve been cooking up. We’re figuring it all out. I don’t know the title of the album. I know it’s coming out this year."
Big Sean also spoke about the producers who will be appearing on the album, revealing that KeY Wane will be responsible for much of the production, and will be joined by the likes of No I.D. and Young Chop.
"The person who is playing one of the biggest roles is my new producer I signed myself, KeY Wane," he said. "He also did the Amen track for Meek Mill. He got stuff with ‘Ye coming. He produced my first single that’s about to come out of my album. KeY Wane is definitely an instrumental part. He kind of has like a vintage sound with a new spin on it, so I’m excited to have him on the album. Of course, No I.D. is playing a big ass role in it with his beats, his input. That’s the main thing I get from No I.D. It’s not always just production, it’s his input a lot of times and that’s a true producer. That’s the difference between a beat-maker and a producer. Young Chop is definitely on the album. Shout out to Young Chop from Chi-Town, bringing that new sound. We’re just young guys with that new sound."
