Last week, Sean invited a select number of writers and label contacts to an exclusive album listening session.
Big Sean is tranquil. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper is centered in a room full of journalists and label personnel, many of whom impatiently wait to listen to the soundtrack of the next phase of his career, and be reassured that the rapper has survived the dreaded sophomore slump. "I'm not nervous. I'm actually excited," he says before previewing a handful of tracks off his upcoming album, "Hall of Fame" (August 27), at NYC's legendary' Jungle City Studios on Tuesday (July 30). "It's just, it feels like it took forever." (Billboard)
Last month, the Detroit native revealed the project's long-awaited cover art.
Detroit native and G.O.O.D. Music signee, Big Sean, is back today! He returns to the interwebs with some news regarding his upcoming album, the highly anticipated, Hall Of Fame. Big Sean decided to let loose of the albums artwork today, both editions the standard and deluxe models, for the fans. Both covers are rather interesting and extremely colorful, featuring Sean while staying fairly simple over all. The artwork was designed by DONDA the same folks who have done the Yeezus album art, or lack there of, as well as Lil' Wayne latest album art, and many more. (Stupid Dope)
Earlier this year, B.I. hinted at some of the reception his hip-hop peers gave him over the LP's content.
A few months back Sean told MTV News that he'd gotten very positive feedback when previewing the album for his peers and even critics. "Everybody I've been playing it for has been shocked from rappers, from 'Ye. I played it for Cole, No I.D., Billboard magazine all these different people and everybody has just been blown away," he said. "I'm not trying to hype it up or talk it up but it's obviously the best work I've done and I'm excited about it." (RapFix)
