Since 2007, Big Sean has been on a prowl to be one of the greatest in the rap game. Through the years, he’s proven himself time and time again that his name deserves to be in the same sentence as the other greats in the frequent rap debates. While he’s loved and appreciated by many, there is also a lot of haters (for whatever reason) that attempts to downplay his abilities and his discography like he’s sweet on the mic. Things like that only fuels the Detroit native to go even harder to silence the doubters. Today (Oct. 29), he links with Hit-Boy to bring forth their joint EP What You Expect and it is filled with heat from top to bottom.
Last week, Sean Don made a trip up to L.A. Leakers with Justin Credible and DJ Sour Milk to deliver a ferocious freestyle over a number of solid instrumentals. The nearly 9 minute effort showed Sean’s range and that he will indeed be coined as one of the best to ever do it when it is all said and done. That same night, he and frequent collaborator Hit-Boy dropped off a riveting single called What A Life — setting us up for this hard-hitting EP release.
Sean also recently took to Twitter to get some things off of his chest in regards to being able to outrapping any rapper and thensome: “I take pride in being versatile but I can also see how’s its helped and hurt me in my career. Cause some people hear a song n think I’m just that, or a certain type of artist when I actually have many sides. I can Out rap anyone, but sometimes I just wanna jus vibe or have fun.”
All in all, Big Sean deserves his flowers for a number of reasons and he will continue to prove the naysayers wrong with his pen game and wordplay for years to come. Check out the EP now!
