G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean is eyeing down a few big collaborations, recently dishing out plans to hook up with rap star Lil Wayne and pop sensation Justin Bieber.
While he would not reveal any specific release dates, Sean said fans could anticipate the new collabos to start pouring out in the near future.
During an interview with Power 106 (via L.A. Leakers), Sean announced that he and the Biebs have recorded together. "We got something in the works," he said. "You gon' see it sooner or later--either my album, his album, we'll see." The follow-up to Sean's 2011 debut Finally Famous will feature production from Kanye West, No I.D., Salaam Remi, and possibly an appearance from Nicki Minaj. "We got a couple things in the works, so we just gotta see how it comes out," he said of reuniting with his "Dance (A$$)" co-star. "She's the homie though. Shout out to her, YMCMB. They show so much love." (Rap-Up)
Sticking with the Young Money crew, Sean said he would be featured on Wayne's upcoming LP.
In addition to Nicki, he's also working with other members of the YMCMB family. "We got some stuff with Wayne coming. I did some stuff for Wayne and DJ Khaled's new albums. He got a smash on there," revealed Sean, who recently shot a video with Tyga for "I'm Gone." (Rap-Up)
Over the fall, Sean talked to SOHH about hooking up with Nicki Minaj for their "Dance (A$$)" smash hit.
"I hit her up and she said she loved that song and she listened to it all the time with her tour dancers. Two days after I asked her, she killed it, sent it back and told me she wanted to shoot the video for it. When she came on the set, I was like, "Man she is fine as sh*t." D*mn, she look good. There was alotta chemistry, right? [laughs] H*ll yeah. We go together good. That's my favorite video strictly because of her." (SOHH)
A few months ago, Hot 97 radio personality Peter Rosenberg spoke on Justin Bieber's love for hip-hop.
"It'll probably be heard by millions of people. And it's labeled online--I intentionally labeled it 'Dwyck'," Rosenberg said, referring to the freestyle. "I wanted it to be out there and people to go, 'What's Dwyck?' To me, amidst all the people that would be like, 'Why'd you do that?' Ultimately, that's a really dope thing to do. I think that's a win for hip-hop. Justin Bieber is not gonna be the problem with hip-hop. Justin Bieber rhyming on a real hip-hop beat only exposes people to real hip-hop. That's just a good thing. Even if 1% of his fans look it up. Why not? I haven't talked to Premo yet, but I think Premo will think it's cool. I think everyone will think it's cool." (XXL Mag)
