Big Sean is prepping to release his new album “Hall Of Fame” on August 27th. “Hall Of Fame” is a follow up to his highly successful album “Finally Famous” which featured hits such as “Dance (A$$)” with Nicki Minaj and “My Last” with Chris Brown. Big Sean looks to continue his success with his new album with huge features all over the place such as Lil Wayne, Nas, Kid Cudi, Nicki Minaj and Miguel.
So far the first few singles haven’t garnered the same success as his last album and have only been moderate hits. The first three singles “Guap”, “Switch Up”, and “Beware” to me doesn’t seem like logical choices for the first singles mainly because there was nothing really special about these tracks. The fourth single “Fire” is so far the best track released off the album. Big Sean takes a more serious approach on this single rapping about his life and making it through the “Fire”. It’s not your typical club track and that’s what makes it that much better. Miley Cyrus is also in the music video which doesn’t hurt it at all.
Overall Big Sean had big success on his last album so he has a lot to live up to on this album. He doesn’t seem too worried though because he is looking to put out his own music and not following what anyone else wants which is always a good thing for an artist. In an interview he said
“Not going by the label standards. I’m not going by the club standards. This is just what the fuck I want to do. Some people are going to like it. Some people are going to hate it; regardless, I’m just doing me.”
This album looks to be a solid release with many anticipated songs featuring Nicki Minaj, Miguel, Kid Cudi and many more. Here is hoping the rest of the album is better than the first three singles and if it sounds anything like his past hits or “Fire” then this album could do very well for Big Sean.
