Kanye West Challenges Big Sean To Evolve As An Artist
Big Sean said his verse on "Mercy" initially began as a freestyle after hearing the beat for the song backstage at the Watch The Throne concert in Detroit. It was Kanye West that pushed him to commit the verse to record.
"I think it's cool just to hear that kind of music again," he said of the song. "It's got kind of an old school vibe and a hard bounce to it."
Aside from the G.O.O.D. Music album, the rapper has already been hard at work on his new album. Of the tracks he's recorded, he said his favorite is a song called "One Man Can Change the World."
“I just feel like this album is about progression," Sean said. “I feel like everything I do I progress... Kanye said, ‘I want you to be better than me and better than Jay. I want you to be the best ’cause you the younger generation. We passing our secrets on to you.’ If you don’t take it to a new height and to new levels, then what the fuck are we doing this for? That’s the point, to evolve.”
