Last night, Big Sean was joined by Kid Cudi on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform one of the standout jams from Hall of Fame "First Chain". They were also backed by The Roots, and the only icing on the cake would have been if Nas were available to spit his verse too. But no biggie, seeing Sean and Cudi perform together on national TV is a treat in itself. And both of them didn't miss a word. I can imagine a casual viewer stumbling upon this and being impressed with both Sean and Cud's raps. If you know the song, you know they're goin pretty fast and in this performance they spit each word with max. clarity. Real dope performance of one of my favorite three tracks on the album as well. Watch and enjoy above ICYMI.
My most anticipated collab off Hall Of Fame is liberated today with the full album leak. Had to spotlight this one as it delivers on the hype with the guest features involved: Nas & Kid Cudi. It's Big Sean that shines brightest amongst his fellow stars with two stellar verses, including a memorable third verse where he uses repetition well as part of his storytelling. Nas does his usual brilliant job with the second verse and Kid Cudi takes it home with an eclectic verse that picks up in intensity as it goes. This is the type of track to run back a few times to fully digest it and after having done so already, I want to keep running it back. That's a sign of an instant *Tibs Fav. and "First Chain" is certainly one of the standouts of Hall Of Fame.
