With G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer coming this September and both Kanye West and Pusha T preparing their respective releases to follow, it looks like fans have a bevy of new tunes to anticipate. Now, in a recent interview with Complex, G.O.O.D.’s Detroit rep Big Sean discusses his sophomore LP. Although he kept tight-lipped about possible features or a tentative release date for the effort, he said that he’s preparing to release its first single shortly.
“We just got the first single. I’m not going to tell you who’s all on it. Dope ass artists on it, though, for sure.” he teased. “It’s great. It’s something that connects. When I was playing it for Common, he was losing his mind. J. Cole was blown away. It really is elevating, taking it to a different level. I don’t even want to hype it up or talk too much like, ‘Yeah, my album is the shit!’ I just can’t wait for everyone to hear what I’ve been doing, what I’ve been cooking up. We’re figuring it all out. I don’t know the title of the album. I know it’s coming out this year.”
Big Sean also discussed a few of the producers that will grace his project, including frequent collaborator No I.D. and Young Chop. He added that he’s been working extensively with KeY Wane, who most recently produced Meek Mill’s single “Amen.”
“The person who is playing one of the biggest roles is my new producer I signed myself, KeY Wane,” he revealed. “He also did the ‘Amen’ track for Meek Mill. He got stuff with ‘Ye coming. He produced my first single that’s about to come out of my album. KeY Wane is definitely an instrumental part. He kind of has like a vintage sound with a new spin on it, so I’m excited to have him on the album. Of course, No I.D. is playing a big ass role in it with his beats, his input. That’s the main thing I get from No I.D. It’s not always just production, it’s his input a lot of times and that’s a true producer. That’s the difference between a beat-maker and a producer. Young Chop is definitely on the album. Shout out to Young Chop from Chi-Town, bringing that new sound. We’re just young guys with that new sound.”
