G.O.O.D Music's Big Sean is all about his fans at the end of the day and he recently proved it by treating a diehard supporter to an exclusive listen to his upcoming sophomore album, Hall of Fame.
According to reports, B.I.'s number one fan went as far as to call the LP better than Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail and Kanye West's Yeezus albums.
Big Sean goes hard for his fans. Last week the Detroit spitter gave one of his fans the moment of a lifetime allowing him to be the first fan ever to hear Hall of Fame in its entirety. Linking with MTV, B.I.G Sean surprised a fan by unexpectedly dropping by his home because he felt it necessary to express gratitude towards one of his loyalist. The fan deemed the moment as "Surreal" and told the rapper that the project was better than both Magna Carta Holy Grail and Born Sinner. (XXL Mag)
Recently, The LOX's Jadakiss promised he would do something special for his one millionth Twitter follower.
"Private party/open bar for my 1 million th follower....DM for location believe DAT!!," Jada tweeted July 24.
"All followers invited!!! Although I do understand that a lot won't be able to attend do to the fact that they live far away" (Jadakiss' Twitter)
During a recent Hall of Fame listening session, Sean talked about putting together the sophomore album and how far he is willing to go to prove he's an elite emcee.
"Sometimes people don't consider Big Sean as one of the best rappers because Big Sean has only put out one album," Sean explained. "Going into this album, I had the mind state of thinking, 'All right, I've been on basically songs with everybody I really respect in the rap game.' From Jay Z to Kanye to the newcomers, the new guys. And I always stand on my own, I always stand out and you can never say I've never done a feature where someone's out-rapped me on and it's crazy because a lot of those songs, I submit my verse first and then people like Kanye or Jay Z or whoever will get it. It just goes to show you I'm here for a reason, I wonder why people don't consider Big Sean as one of the best rapeprs. They might consider J. Cole is one of the best rappers, they might consider Drake one of the best rappers. I'll hop on a song with Drake and out rap him, you know what I'm saying? And that's my homie. [laughs] I'm here to be a legend." (Real Talk NY)
Last summer, Sean said he would push hip-hop's boundaries to become the best.
"He actually told me that I was going to be the best. But I took that as the potential, because he speaks with so much passion," Big Sean said in an interview referring to Kanye West. "What he meant was, I'm his protégé, he took me under his wing. I'm in the studio hanging with him and Jay-Z, I'm in the studio with Nas, I'm in the studio with everybody, and it's like, if I don't take it past where they took it, then what the hell am I doin'?"
