Big Sean Reveals He Didn't Like His First Album
He Says It Was "A Timing Thing"
Big Sean has revealed that he wasn't too thrilled with his debut album, despite respectable, commercial and critical appeal as well as featuring one of the biggest US singles of the year.
Sean told HipHopWired.com: "I ain't really like it that much. On the first album I wasn't really in love with every single one. I just think it was a timing thing, I just started getting into the groove I was starting to feel comfortable right when it was due. Really when it was past due, and it kind of fucked me up.”
The G.O.O.D Music star did say that he appreciated lessons learned from the first go-round: "You live and you learn and I'm glad it went like that. I'm glad my first album was the way it was and I'm glad the second album is the way it is shaping up to be."
The Detroit rapper also explained that his next release would be similat to 'Finally Famous' in that it will feature songs for the radio: "I think my first album had a lot of radio songs on it and that is an important part of things and it is a necessity you have to establish."
"At least radio knows me now as a presence and now they'd be willing to take more chances on me and that's what this second album is. It's all about taking chances. [The second album's] a little bit more personal and making some new shit for the radio instead of trying to go for something else."
