Big Sean has his sights set on rap’s hall of fame with his upcoming sophomore album. And while we have little doubt the G.O.O.D. Music MC has got what it takes, his work with another hip-hop great this weekend may just make it to his own Hall of Fame.
There were a few photos which surfaced from the studio that night. Eminem, Sean and Royce da 5’9″ posed for a pic and producer Denaun Porter also got in on the action. “@Royceda59 @mrporter2012 my dogs, appreciate everything,” Sean wrote.
No word on what the artists created, or if they created anything at all. Sean has previously expressed interest in working with Slim Shady and both are expected to drop LPs this year . Last November, during an interview with the U.K.’s Tim Westwood, Sean revealed that Em extended an invitation to him. “Em reached out to me like, ‘Come to the studio, come hang out when you get a chance,’ ” he said then. “We gonna make that happen right now, that’s the legend right there.”
Sean has spent the past several months gearing up for the release of Hall of Fame. Last year, he dropped “Guap,” and earlier this month, he released the Common-assisted “Switch Up.” The excitement is certainly building.
“Everybody I’ve been playing it for has been shocked from rappers, from ‘Ye. I played it for Cole, No I.D., Billboard magazine all these different people and everybody has just been blown away,” he told MTV News back in December. “I’m not trying to hype it up or talk it up but it’s obviously the best work I’ve done and I’m excited about it.”
