Another Funny Moment in Hip Hop today comes courtesy of the always hilarious Jimmy Kimmel Live. For a new segment called "Words From Your Mother", Big Sean's mom reads the chorus for "A$$ (Dance)", which... as you all know how the song goes... is quite hilarious when read in a monotone voice from Big Sean's mother. I too always wonder what rappers' moms think about their son or daughter's lyrics.
I need to see more of this. Up next I vote Drake's mom reads the lyrics to his hook on "No Lie".
The new single off the upcoming album, Hall Of Fame, due out August 27th. Gonna listen and update with commentary after Game 6!
UPDATE: Game over. Blackhawks WIN!
But to the topic at hand:
Single potential. Fun beat and one that Sean is readily adapting to with a smooth flow and good story. Jhene is soothing on the hook and Weezy is a nice fit on this one as well. So off the first listen...
The announcement yesterday of Hall Of Fame dropping August 27th is quickly followed by the announcement of Big Sean's new single. It's entitled "Beware" and will feature Lil Wayne & Jhene Aiko. Look out for the song here on Gowhere this week!
Plus, we can now safely say there's a consistent theme with the artwork. See also: "Switch Up" f/ Common.
We finally have word about the Finally Famous follow up's release date: Big Sean lets us know in this new video that Hall Of Fame will be dropping August 27th! Should be a G.O.O.D. summer for Big Sean, amirite?
New track from Pusha T titled "Who I Am", and featuring on the track is 2 Chainz and Big Sean. This track will be on the "My Name Is My Name" album. Also producing on this track DJ Mano and Kanye West.
D'Banj drops a new single off his upcoming album, D'Kings Men, and it features stellar features from his G.O.O.D. Music labelmate Big Sean as well as Snoop Lion. I like the energy and vibe to this track from all artists involved and the production too. Borderline *Tibs Fav. on first listen; we'll see how long it sticks in my rotation.
First, the coolest of the news for Big Sean: he graces this mural in his hometown of Detroit with fellow D-Town artists Mike Posner, SAYITAINTTONE, and Earlly Mac. That's a "Mama we made it!" moment if I've ever seen one. The mural looks dope! Congrats to all the artist involved.
One more Big Sean note: he spoke with MTV about working with Eminem after it was revealed he was in the studio with him last month. Sean says the collab will be a "Detroit classic" and is not sure whose album it'll appear on just yet. Watch the interview below.
A couple more news and notes: DJ Paul confirmed to HHDX that some Three 6 Mafia members are reuniting for a new group called Da Mafia 6iX. They all are: Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous and Crunchy Black. Here's DJ Paul on talking with Juicy J:
"Given his absence in the new group, Paul also added that he has remained on good terms and is often in contact with Juicy J though they no longer collaborate musically: “We still talk. But no, I’m not on his album and we haven’t did nothing musically. But we still talk because we still own all the companies together, we still get big checks together, so we still talk business stuff but I’m not on the album."

And finally, a picture below was on Pharrell's Facebook page today; a studio session with Wiz Khalifa, Akon, Kelly Rowland, and Amber Rose was there. I thought I saw a photo of this before, but nevertheless, here it is. Should be a good collab.
The new single from U.K. singer Jessie J. The production takes a turn south for Big Sean's verse and it's not his greatest flow unfortunately. I'm not really diggin' Dizzie's concluding verse so what may keep my ear in tune is actually Jessie J's catchy vocals.
