While Big Sean isn't the most recognizable name on the G.O.O.D. Music roster, don't sleep on the kid. Sean has amassed quite the following and can probably pack plenty of venues around the country. So when he Skype'd into this week's episode of "Rapfix Live," host Sway wanted to know when they could expect his long-awaited debut album.
"It's definitely coming out early next year. We're just been fine-tuning it," Big Sean said. "I've been making sure to keep music virally out because I know how important that is. That's how I got my whole buzz. We just dropped that mixtape with Billionaire Boys Club and Don Cannon, and we're about to drop a tagless version of that probably about the next couple of weeks. The album is going to be crazy."
Sean was coy about what the first single would be, but said he plans to release it at the top of the year. He didn't shy away from the topic of his feature on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, however. Sean turns up on an updated version of "See Me Now," and he was more than happy to name-drop.
"It's incredible. All of the tracks that leaked are completely different. I'm on an iTunes version of "See Me Now" featuring Beyonce."
His G.O.O.D. Music labelmate Pusha T (who was this week's official "RapFix Live" guest), was quick to joke and point out Sean's braggadocio.
"He just lightweight stunted right there. You know, 'I was ... "See Me Now." You know, Beyonce's on that joint," Push laughed.
