GOOD Music rapper Big Sean has bounced back with Kid Studio directed visuals for his brand new track. ‘Bounce Back’ is everything we love from the Sean Don, and the new colorful visuals are just as good as Sean’s verses and the Metro Boomin production.

Following his Dark Sky Paradise LP, his best album to date, and his collaborative EP with girlfriend Jhene Aiko, Big Sean sure doesn’t have much to bounce back from in 2016 as he has been killing it in the past couple years, and it looks like he is only gaining momentum from here on out.

Touching on ex-girlfriend Naya Rivera’s “tell all” book, his friendship with former GOOD Music rapper Kid Cudi and more, Big Sean gives us a window into his life on his new record, ‘No More Interviews’. Produced by Amarie Johnson and Big Sean himself, Sean expresses his frustrations over media and drama in the new track.

“Don’t ask me no stupid questions, are you still signed to Ye questions, no Roc Nation questions, or who I’m dating questions. No more interviews, unless you want to talk about the music or something that has a different view.”

Especially noteworthy from the new track is Sean addressing Kid Cudi’s beef towards him, where Cudi called Big Sean and his girlfriend, singer Jhene Aiko, a “corn ball a** n*gga” and a “bum b*tch” earlier this year, likely because Jhene is recently separated from Cudi’s long-time producer Dot Da Genius. According to ‘No More Interviews’, Sean was surprised to hear that his former label-mate had such words for him. Sean says that Cudi was “forever grateful” for putting him on a record with Nas, and added that he is still praying for Cudi, while he is currently in rehab for depression.

New Music: Big Sean and 2 Chainz Team Up for “Light It Up”

Fans have been patiently waiting for more music from GOOD Music rapper Big Sean, ever since 2015 LP Dark Sky Paradise. And while Sean treated fans with a collaborative EP with the lovely and talented Jhene Aiko, with Twenty88, earlier this year, Big Sean is back with his new record ‘Light It Up’. And even though Sean is one of the best feature rappers in the game right now, the Detroit native recruited the talents of 2 Chainz for the new record.

Don’t get too excited however. ‘Light It Up’ is part of the original soundtrack for Kevin Hart’s new film, “What Now?”, so it may be longer than we’d like until Sean blesses fans with a follow up to Dark Sky Paradise.

Stream ‘Light It Up’ here!

Reportedly an extra and unreleased track from his recent LP, Coloring Book, Chicago’s Chance The Rapper has released an all-star collaboration with ‘Living Single’. Recruiting the talents of GOOD Music‘s Big Sean, St. Louis MC Smino and fellow Windy City native, Jeremih, ‘Living Single’ is stacked. Everyone holds their own on this one, from the record’s gospel influenced vocals throughout the track to Smino, Chance and Sean’s equally impressive verses. According to rumors, this track was originally supposed to feature J. Cole, which would have made the collaboration even bigger. Let’s only hope that Chance has even more collaborations in the vault.

After years of inactivity and speculation on the highly anticipated collaborative album, Kanye West has finally released new music that will be heard on the followup to Kanye’s GOOD Music album Cruel Summer, similarly titled Cruel Winter. Kanye surprised many as he shared the news earlier this morning, moments before he paid a visit to Big Boy’s 92.3 to debut the track. Titled ‘Champion’, as confirmed by Travis Scott on Twitter, the new track is fire and star studded. ‘Champion’ features Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Quavo (Migos), Travis Scott and GOOD Music‘s newest signee, ‘Panda’ rapper Desiigner.

While Cruel Summer was met with mixed reviews, and expectedly wasn’t as complete as a solo album from Kanye, the album had a number of bangers, and if ‘Champion’ is any indication of what to expect from Cruel Winter, then this sequel will be no exception when it comes to stacked hits and perhaps it may be a step up from Cruel Summer.

Stream ‘Champion’ below.

EP Review: Twenty88 | Big Sean & Jhene Aiko

Twenty88
BY DANNY GLYNN

A collaboration between Big Sean and Jhene Aiko is something that 2016 needed. Big Sean’s last album Dark Sky Paradise was his best work so far, and the album that really created his own sound. Jhene’s last album Souled Out dropped 2 years ago. The artists have pretty much gone into hibernation since then. The two brought together their talents to form the group “Twenty88.” It’s hard to tell if Twenty88 is a one time thing or if they will drop more sexy R&B albums in the future.

The self titled album by Twenty88 is bound to be something special, one can only expect this album to have beautiful high notes from Jhene and low, smooth bars from Sean about love, lust, and ex’s. The EP project is about the tension and power struggle that couples go through, only having 8 songs. On the other hand, there are songs about the real love and passion that comes after those meaningless fights. Both Jhene and Sean have had their fair share of relationships and side pieces. This album has songs that are both personal to them, and songs that every person can relate too. There are also a lot of songs that people simply can not relate to. You only have those experiences if you are at the celebrity status of Big Sean or Jhene Aiko. It is fun to listen to some of these songs and get a taste of what it is like to be in  love with an A list celebrity.

Starting off the project is the song ‘Déjà vu.’ Big Sean drops his classic “straight up” line to start the song. When you hear “straight up” you know the song is about to be lit. With soft Drake like beats, we get a smooth harmony between the two artists that makes you rewind to listen again.  The song is about a memory the both Sean and Jhene share that brings them back to the times they had with each other while they were together. The couple has been broken up for 3 years and are just seeing each other again for the first time since. Reminiscing on the past and how great they were together. Only problem is that it’s far too late. She already has a kid, is dating an athlete, and doesn’t have time for him. The damage is done. The only thing they can do now it look back at what they used to have.

The second song ‘Selfish’ is a song where the artists express how they felt about the person playing hard to get. Sean speaks on how he dropped all of his other girls for her, spent money he didn’t have, lost sleep for her and she doesn’t even have the time to text him back. Jhene has good reasoning for being shady towards Sean. She asks him how someone could betray and lie to someone that had been with them through thick and thin. Both of them are doing things that are not healthy for the relationships.

They have an interesting song named ‘Talk Show.’ The song is an interview with Big Sean and Jhene on a popular talk show where they are invited to talk about their relationship. They are the power couple at the time and have to keep the act up. The beginning of the song they both say how much they love each other and how perfect they are. Once Sean expresses his love for Jhene she confesses that they really aren’t so perfect. She calls Sean out in front of everyone for cheating on her. Sean bites back by saying that he hates when she tries to make there business public. Being hypocritical, he tells everyone that she also cheated on him. This song is meant to show that just because celebrity couples look perfect and happy, there are usually some pretty evil things going on behind the scenes.

The final song on the short album named ‘London Bridge’ is about how historical it is going to be when they break up. Through out the album you see them fall in love, get torn apart, and then fall back in love. If one of them were to leave it would be as historical as when the London Bridge fell down in the 19th century. This song is really one that has one of those “happy” endings. This whole album had a constant story line. While listening you felt like you were watching a movie.

Well guess what, Twenty88 decided to make a 14 minute film about the album. The short movie titled “Out Of Love” is everything that you would want to see after listening to this album. Being set in the future you still see that love is that same whether its 2016 or 2116. It features nearly all the songs. There are some R-Rated sex scenes and other things that make this album that much more real. Be warned, listening to this album will bring back memories whether you like it or not.

New Music: Mike Posner Recruits Big Sean for “Buried In Detroit”, Releases Lyric Video

Mike Posner and Big Sean have been our favorite rapper-singer collaboration for many years. Great friends and collaborators well before Big Sean hooked up with Kanye West’s GOOD Music or before Mike Posner hit it big with the club remix of his single ‘Cooler Than Me’, which featured a young Big Sean on the original version, the two are a great team. This time Mike and Sean have teamed up once again, for a rework of Mike Posner’s The Truth record, ‘Buried In Detroit’.

Similar to the rework of his 2015 track, ‘I Took A Pill In Ibizia’, which like ‘Cooler Than Me’ rose up on the Billboard charts with an upbeat remix, ‘Buried In Detroit’ does not have as much club appeal as Posner’s previous singles, but in not doing so it perfectly captures the folk character of the original cut. Add a verse from fellow Detroit native Big Sean, and you have yourself another great record. You’ll be able to find this one on Posner’s highly anticipated sophomore LP, At Night, Alone, which releases next Friday, May 6th.

Check out the lyric video for ‘Buried In Detroit’ below.
