It’s pretty much done though. I’m just putting final touches on it.

Big Sean didn’t reveal the names of his featured artists but he hinted that he has a J Dilla beat on the project which is all thanks to Common.

It’s really about the music, who accents the music. Some artists make a specific kind of music and one sound, but I like to be versatile. It is versatility, so the album is definitely not just one sound.
