Fresh off the release of Detroit 2, Motor City rapper Big Sean sat down with Fat Joe for his Instagram Live series The Fat Joe Show. During their conversation, Sean Don revealed who’s in his Top 5 Rappers of All Time List.
Toward the end of the nearly 90-minute interview, the Terror Squad OG asked Sean to name his Top 5 dead or alive, and Sean proceeded to rattle off Biggie, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and JAY-Z. But Sean had a tough time stopping there and said he could “easily” go 10.
“I could go Rakim, I could go Nas, I could go ‘Pac, I could go Snoop. I mean, so many bro,” he said. “I gotta put Outkast as one. There’s so many ways to go. The reason I call myself Big is because of Big Pun, Biggie Smalls, Big L, you know what I mean?”
Sean dropped Detroit 2 via G.O.O.D Music and Def Jam Recordings on September 4. The project boasted numerous notable features from artists such as Eminem, Royce Da 5’9, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Diddy and the late Nipsey Hussle.
Detroit 2 serves as the aptly titled follow-up to the 2012 mixtape Detroit. The album shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release, pulling in roughly 103,000 total album equivalent units in its first week.
But Sean isn’t one to rest on his laurels. He recently announced he’s working on another TWENTY88 project with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Jhené Aiko four years after they dropped the first one. Aiko contributed to the Detroit 2 tracks “Time In” and “Body Language” with Ty Dolla $ign.
