I’m catching up on downloads from the past couple weeks, and I’ve been looking forward to Big Sean. If you’re new to him, he’s G.O.O.D. Music’s charismatic 21-year old with natural talent, a knack for style, and metaphors for days. His story of being discovered is straight out of a movie, which makes it hard not to root for him. He talked about meeting Kanye for the first time in The Detroit News:
“He was like, ‘I’m in a hurry, man,’ and I was like, ‘Please man, you’re my hero, just let me spit!'” says Sean. “He was like, ‘All right man, real quick while we’re walking out the station.'”
Because he had been rapping on-air all summer, Sean had an arsenal of raps memorized in his head. Filing through his mental Rolodex, he started rapping for Kanye. Kanye slowed down and suddenly wasn’t in such a hurry to leave the station. He liked what he heard.
