Big Sean Explains Getting Jay-Z & Kanye West For "Clique" Single
Big Sean recounts how Kanye West and Jay-Z came to be on a track with him.
"I did the chorus in London to the beat and 'Ye liked it or whatever [but] I was the first one to do my verse. So I did my verse first, sent it back to him, and didn't hear anything back for a while [but] then people were talking about it," explained the Detroit rapper.
Big Sean continued, saying that he started hearing positive feeback from a number oe people, including 2 Chainz. "Then I get a call a little bit later after that, and somebody told me that Hov is on the record and I was like, 'damn,' " he said. "They were like Hov and 'Ye hopped on it, so I'm thinking, 'Ah, they're probably gonna take my verse off even though I laced it' — you know, the Throne, Kanye and Jay ... but then I get the call like, 'Nah, it's you Kanye and Jay-Z.'"
Sean explained the conflicting feelings he had upon hearing the news. "I remember the first thing I thought was, 'Damn, I'm excited as hell," and then I was like, 'Damn, I wish I ain't have to do my verse first," he added, laughing. "But I think it's well-represented and it's on the G.O.O.D. Music album and it's on my next album too."
