Detroit rapper Big Sean has hinted at an upcoming new record featuring him, Kanye West and Kid Cudi as fans continue to wait for the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album.
Confirming plans for the collaborative project to drop in 2012, Sean said the recording process is nearly finished.
"Compilation almost done and ready," Sean said in an interview. "Y'all are gonna get that at the top of the year, around spring time. Single's out soon. So expect nothing less than the f*cking best. How many songs have I done for it? Just a few. You know, me, [Kid] Cudi and Kanye [West] got this cold a** one. I only did like three but I'm gonna do some more for it. So it's going to be fresh."

In ealry November, Sean reflected on how the G.O.O.D. Music compilation began to come together.
"Kanye was like, 'Yo, we got the illest people in the world on one label.' I've been telling him, 'We need to do a group thing, a group album.' Since my album came out, since he just did Watch the Throne, he was like, 'The next thing we should do is the G.O.O.D. Music album,'" Sean explained in an interview. S"o, we're going to have singles. It's going to be a real a** album. [It'll have] me, Kanye, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, everybody -- [Kid] Cudi, everybody, man. It's going to be nuts -- it's almost done. I ain't done with my part though." (Power 92)
A week prior, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Common said he is anticipating the album.
"We had talked about it before, but it was actually some new news to me that it was going forward," Common said referring to the compilation album. "But I'm definitely looking forward to it and I obviously want to be a part of it. I'm G.O.O.D. Music family forever. Even though my album is not coming out on G.O.O.D. Music, I'm still a G.O.O.D. Music affiliate and artist. That's my family forever." (VIBE)
In late October, Pusha T revealed he already had locked in a few records.
"Oh man, I think its gonna be serious," he said of the project. "I was part of four joints thus far. I don't know where they gonna land or who's gonna be on them, 'cause everybody's doing so much. [The] 'Watch the Throne' [Tour] starts in a few days; all of that was gong on, rehearsals. I came up to the city and it was some joints that I [heard] and was like 'Hey, I need this.' I didn't leave. I stayed and did them. I don't know who else came up to the city and how Kanye is gong to maestro who gets on what, but I think it will... it will probably work a lot like his album. That album, [My Beautiful] Dark Twisted Fantasy, it was one of them things where he let people do them and whatever fit, fit." (XXL Mag)
