During the taping of the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards rappers Big Sean and Maino caused a bit of a stir when the two artists reportedly exchanged words while on the red carpet. Big Sean finally cleared up the rumors when he spoke on what exactly occurred between himself and Maino during an interview with The Big Nat Show on 106.5 The Beat.
According to Big Sean, he was approached by Maino during an interview and the rapper was relatively cordial.
“On some video he was talking smack or whatever. I don’t know what he was saying. He was saying something like, ‘Who I’m supposed to beef with, Wiz Khalifa and Lil Sean?’ And I ain’t never met Maino right. And I’m from Detroit so when we have beef it’s really beef,” Big Sean explained. “It’s a difference between beef and somebody just talking. I’ll let people just talk. So when I saw him I didn’t even think it was beef or anything between us. But he ran up in one of my interviews and was like, ‘Yo man, it’s all love. I respect you. I wanted to come up to you as a man’…I respect him for being a G and up front and not rap beef that’s just trying to put it in the public eye.”
Big Sean also spoke on the alleged nude pictures of him that were leaked online late last month.
“You gotta watch out for these nude pictures man. I ain’t put that out man,” said Big Sean. “I don’t ever put nothing like that out. I can’t put that out man. You know how that goes. One thing though you just gotta be careful man. I’m really trying to be careful about all that kind of stuff.”
