Rick Ross, Kanye West & Big Sean Perform “Sanctified” On The Arensino Hall Show (Video)

Just about thirty minutes ago on The Arensino Hall Show, the fans were in for a treat. Rick Ross surprises guests with performing the Mastermind featured single “Sanctified”, along side Kanye West & Big Sean. Pretty dope live performance with the band.

Big Sean – Sanctified

Apparently Big Sean’s verse was taking off the final version of the Rick Ross & Kanye West “Sanctified”. Although it featured Big Sean on the chorus we were wondering if there was a version with his verse on it. For the fans, the G.O.O.D. music rapper liberates his verse of the song.

Album Review: Big Sean – Hall Of Fame

jig sean

After a very successful mixtape, Big Sean decided to release his new album Hall Of Fame — a promising album that fails to impress. HOF has his own sound, a terrible one at that. Overcooked beats are the main problem of this project, there’s always too much going on while Sean raps. Awfully put together the tracks sound as if they weren’t mastered at all. Right when the best beat on this album “10 2 10″ starts and raises expectations a bit Big Sean ruins everything by deciding to annoy his listeners, trying to put his non-existent energy to the track. His delivery made him sound like he wasn’t interested in recording this album at all. The beats & his flows mixed together make it pointless to put effort into listening the album and concentrate on the lyrics which are no way as bad. With instrumentals which the majority of the time don’t fit the content of the lyrics he doesn’t maintain to put emotion between his verses which lead to characterless tunes.  Read more

No I.D. Reveals Big Sean’s “Control” Was Originally For JAY Z

Legendary producer No I.D. sat down with Complex to talk about one of the most talked about record he produced with was for Big Sean “Control.” During the interview he revealed that the beat was originally for JAY Z but he played it for Big Sean before letting Hov hear it. Imagine hearing JAY Z over a beat like “Control”, do you think it would’ve been a big record as it is now. Let us know.

One of the big records you’ve had recently was Big Sean’s “Control.” What is the story behind that record?

I had a conversation with Big Sean towards the end of his album. I told him, I felt like he needed to do some straight, hardcore hip-hop records. Sometimes we focus so much on selling records that we leave some artistic points uncovered. I had this beat. I had actually done it for Jay, right before I let [Sean] hear it. I said, “You should take this beat, I think it would be great for you to show up on one of these beats, forget money, forget everything.”

He was like, “I’m gonna drop it as a freestyle.” I was like cool. Then he was like, “Yo, I’m gonna get Jay Electronica on it.” I was like, “Okay, cool.” Anyway, that’s where “No I.D. (Freestyle)” comes from, it was a No I.D. beat and he was freestyling. It didn’t have a chorus, it wasn’t intended to be a full song even.

Big Sean – Fire (Official Video)

After releasing the song not a while ago, Big Sean decides to drop the visuals for his newest single called Fire. Besides personally not liking the song, I decided to check the video. And this is full of nonsense, Miley Cyrus makes the most random appearance ever and just sits/walks around the set. If there is a meaning behind this video, it sure isn’t interpreted right.
