(Big Sean on G.O.O.D. Music album)
By Rob Markman
Big Sean’s sophomore album is due in 2012 as well his next mixtape Finally Famous Over Everything, but before that, expect the much anticipated G.O.O.D. Music album. MTV News caught up with the Detroit rapper on the set of Wale’s “Slight Work” video in California, where he revealed that the crew would be heading to London to finish recording. “We’re gonna do the G.O.O.D. Music album first; we been working on that,” Big Sean said. “So, me, Kanye, Cudi, CyHi, John Legend, Common, Pusha T, everybody on G.O.O.D., Mr Hudson: We’re all working on a new project; it’s almost done. We’re going to London to finish it up and do the last part of it and working on my album at the same time with ‘Ye and everybody.”
Last week just before Christmas, Kanye gave fans across the pond a sneak preview of his label compilation when he DJed at holiday party at LeBaron London. Not only did Yeezy spin G.O.O.D. Music tracks, he also played beats from his upcoming sixth solo album, according to a report on Rap-Up. Maybe New Year’s party-goers will get a taste too, since Kanye tweeted that he’d like to bring in 2012 on the 1s and 2s as well. “I kinda wanna DJ somewhere this New Years,” he wrote Tuesday night.
Big Sean estimates that the G.O.O.D. Music album will drop in the spring, and after that, in the summer of 2012, he will be ready to deliver his sophomore album. Before that though, the Detroit MC promises to release a mixtape. Despite his major-label success in 2011, Sean recognizes that it was his mixtape grind that finally made him famous. “I’m sticking to that,” he said. “I got the new F.F.O.E. mixtape, Finally Famous Over Everything, coming, new G.O.O.D. Music album, the next Finally Famous album, so we going hard.”
