Finally, He’s Famous: Big Sean Speaks On His Debut Album, His Relationship With Kanye And Jay-Z, G.O.O.D Music & More

After releasing a series of mixtapes, collaborating with Kanye West and Chris Brown, touring across the states and being featured on the cover of some of the biggest music publication, 23-year-old Detroit native Big Sean is finally famous. Sean’s career started a few years ago, when he freestyle for Kanye West at a Detroit radio station. Yeezy eventually  signed him to his G.O.O.D. music label. The Interview’s magazine Alex Champan caught up with Big Sean for a brief conversation. During the interview, Sean talked about his debut album, his relationship with Kanye West & Jay-Z, G.O.O.D. Music and much more. Finally Famous: The Album is now in stores and online. Peep some excerpts below:

With all the material you’ve come out with via mixtapes, it’s crazy to think that this is really just the beginning. What’s been the difference between the music you’ve made in the past and making an official, debut album?

There are a lot of sample clearings. Because of that, I couldn’t put out some of the things I wanted to put out. I was really mad about it, but the album is still a really great body of work, and I’m so proud of it. Also, with a mixtape, you can just go in and don’t have to worry about having a single or a hit record on it. You can just have 40 bar verses if you really want. But when you are doing a commercial release, you have to make music that you can play around the world—at concerts, barbeques, stadiums, whatever the occasion might be. It’s definitely a different process, but the thing for me is just to do it well. I can’t wait to use what I learned on this album and apply it to the next album.
