Big Sean is now playing with the big boys. Last night the G.O.O.D. Music rapper shot the video for his much hyped track “Marvin Gaye And Chardonnay” off his highly successful Finally Famous album last night in New York City. The video comes on the heels of Sean receiving some good news when his debut album landed #3 on the Billboard charts.
Our very own Sway was on the set of Sean’s video where he spoke on the feeling of shooting a video with such an esteemed director as the legendary Hype Williams.
“It’s great, it’s fun, me and Hype are homeys. He’s a real dude and it’s tight being around people that you consider legends, and him just being so real,” Sean told MTV News’ Sway on the “Marvin & Chardonnay” set. “We came up in here and was just blasting DMX and all this different music. He gets inspired creatively from I don’t know what; he just has these crazy ideas.”
For the clip Sean says his mini-movie was inspired by the classic yellow suits and vintage Versace shades. As a member of the G.O.O.D. Music family Sean feels it’s his duty to keep the swag level all the way turned up.
“Colors, the visualization, the whole what G.O.O.D. Music stands for is just that quality. Whatever we do is quality,” Sean said. “If we gonna have girls, we gonna have the best girls. If we gonna have yellow suits, it’s gonna be the best yellow suit. If we gonna have Versaces, it’s gonna be the OG Medusa-head Versace.”
