While Big Sean did reveal that he’s only about seven songs into his next album he also explained that he plans on focusing a lot more on the project once he returns from France.
“I got about seven songs done for the solo album and a lot of them aren’t even all the way done,” said Big Sean. “So you know we got a lot of work to do. Once I get back from France that’s all I’m doing is just these Summer Jams and my album and at the same time finishing off this mixtape. We got a lot of songs for that already.”
In the meantime Big Sean plans on releasing a mixtape which will likely be released in a "few weeks" and will consist of tracks that didn’t quite fit in with the overall feel of his sophomore album.
“[The] songs I just feel like are really good, but just don’t fit the album. You know what I’m saying? Don’t fit where I’m trying to take the album. It’ll probably be a lot of fan favorites though. Just like Finally Famous 3 was to a lot of people,” Big Sean explained. “You know I haven’t dropped a mixtape in like two years it’s just exciting to get back to that man.”
