“I feel like I deserve that,” Big Sean said when asked about being a top rapper. “My album could have been way better and I was still finding myself as an artist. So what I’m saying is I don’t know why people don’t consider Big Sean as one of the best rappers when I’ll hop on a song with anybody and I’ll kill it and have a stand out verse.”
The G.O.O.D. Music artist also compared himself to some of the biggest names in Hip Hop and says he can hold his own against any of them.
“I would consider Kanye and Jay Z the best, you consider Drake the best, you consider J. Cole the best when I can hop on a song with him and have a stand out verse and arguably a better verse than them,” he said. “That’s the point of Hall Of Fame, I wanted to make an album that gives me more leverage.”
When asked about why his label boss Kanye West wasn’t included as a guest on his second studio album, Sean replied that he shouldn’t have to have ‘Ye featured on his album for people to be a fan of his music.
“There was a song that me and Kanye had but it really just didn’t fit the album necessarily,” He said in describing their recent work. “I did five goddam five songs with Kanye man like ya’ll want another? Niggas shouldn’t fuck with me ’cause I got a song with Kanye… I want people to fuck with me for me man.”
Big Sean also recently addressed his disagreements with Kanye, saying they’re always going to have disagreements but ‘Ye “definitely respects that and supports me and I support him.”
