Big Sean Says His Album

Kanye West, No I.D., and J. Cole "blown away" by "Hall Of Fame," according to Big Sean.

Big Sean’s sophomore album, Hall Of Fame, may not hit shelves until 2013, but according to the Detroit wordsmith the album has already received praise from a number of industry heavy’s including J. Cole, No I.D., and Kanye West.

While speaking with MTV News, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper revealed that thus far the artists and publications he’s played the album for have “been blown away” by it.

“Everybody I've been playing it for has been shocked. From rappers, from ‘Ye. I played it for Cole to No I.D. Billboard magazine and all these different people and everybody’s just been blown away,” Big Sean revealed. “So you know I'm not trying to hype it up or talk it up, but it's obviously the best work I've done and I'm excited about it.”

In the months leading up to the release of Hall Of Fame, Big Sean has gone on to release a handful of inspirational video blogs that touch on how he’s gotten to where he’s at in his career and what he plans on doing to further his position in music.

He also shared that he hopes the video blogs help and encourage fans to be successful in their own lives.

“The album Hall Of Fame you can just expect a roller coaster, just so many different feelings man. I’ve been doing video blogs lately, giving people inspiration and incite on my life about how I got to where I’m at and how I’m getting to where I’m going,” said Big Sean. “I title them ‘Imagination,’ ‘Fear,’ ‘Reality’ and just talk about different aspects. So hopefully they can take what I learned, put that in their own life, and be happy and successful themselves…I feel like we all deserve to be rich.”

    Big Sean has always been somewhat cheesy too me kinda like a modern day Mc Hammer, with his sense of style and themes he uses and things he says in his raps. All that aside I still respect him as an mc, he has bars. I will give his album a listen. FINALLY FAMOUS WAS HORRIBLE THOUGH. I hope it comes harder then that.

    Doesn't mean it won't flop.

    Like those 2 niggaz actually mean anything to anybody. Kanye West may know how to construct a pretty good album. But J.cole wouldn't know how to make a good cd if the whole entire world depended on it. This Hall of Shame album will brick aswell. Not hate just facts. Thats all it is these facts are just factual.

      I think if J.cole linked with the right producers (Just Blaze, Alchemist, Dr. Dre, JZMN) he has the potential to make an classic album. As far as the Hall of Fame Album why not wait till its out and give it a subjective listen before criticizing it smh....

    big sean is just too damn cocky (in a bad way). He's really gotta prove that hes a "hall of famer" with this one. His recent shit has been weak as fuck.
