Big Sean Talks Releasing a New Mixtape, Punchline Flow, No I.D. & morePosted: August 17, 2011
Following his debut London show, Big Sean spoke to Sumit of The Hip Hop Chronicle UK.
He tells Sumit “Marvin & Chardonnay” was the last track done for the album and that he and Kanye wrote their lyrics while on the phone together.
“My Last” was the first song done for the album. It initally had Sean singing the hook but Chris Brown wanted in after hearing the track. It was a song the rapper did not want to put out but was convinced by No I.D. The single initally had Sean singing it, not Chris Brown.
I ask Sean to explain the one-line punchline flow and what did he mean when he said “the whole rap game trying to sound like me”. He explains Drake gave him credit for starting that flow.
Towards the end of the interview, the rapper speaks on No I.D.’s involvement with the project and how “good collaborations with a legend” never made the final cut of the album due to sample clearances.
The G.O.O.D. Music member also says he will release a brand new mixtape in the “next month and a half”.
