Rolling with Kanye West has plenty of benefits. G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean’s first album, Finally Famous, boasts features from an assortment of A-list hip-hop talent, including Wiz Khalifa, Lupe Fiasco, Pharrell “Skateboard P” Williams, Chris Brown and, of course, Mr. West. The Chicago rapper/producer teams with his protégé for a carefree tune on the Detroit MC’s delayed debut, now set to drop on June 28.
“The Kanye song is a great song. It’s called ’Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay,’ ” Sean told MTV News backstage at this weekend’s Hot 97 Summer Jam. “So, you know, it’s definitely a track that’s strictly to have a good time, strictly for just partying.
“It is what it is. It’s self-explanatory, man; it’s just us having fun. I feel like that’s one of the things that people, especially [in] hip-hop, sometimes forget to include in their music, man — you just gotta have fun with it. So it’s nothing too serious, me and him have tons of songs coming out. This is definitely one of the first of many.”
The “I Do It” rapper and Yeezy have in fact appeared on a number of songs together. The creator of the Supa Dupa flow blessed a number of ’Ye’s G.O.O.D. Friday tracks with his bars, including “Good Friday,” “Don’t Look Down” and “Christmas in Harlem.”
For the album cut, Sean and his boss kept to familiar content. Said Sean, “It’s kind of another day in the life, man, but it’s just like, you know when you with your lady and you got those special times? All you really need is that Marvin Gaye and that Chardonnay.”
