Now that Big Sean has found fame in the rap game, he’s focused on taking his sound to “another level.”


In a radio interview with Bootleg Kev, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper revealed some of the featured guests and producers he has worked with on the follow up to his impressive debut album, Finally Famous. With the recording process under way, Sean has picked up beats from beatsmiths Kanye West, No I.D. and KeY Wane. He’s also got songs featuring verses from Yeezy and Wiz Khalifa.


“Yeah, there’s going to be some Kanye production,” Sean revealed. “We had a couple of Kanye productions for the first one but they didn’t make the cut. One got sample clearance, couldn’t get the sample cleared in time, and the other one we just didn’t think it fit the album. Yeah, we got a lot of stuff on deck.”


Much like his breakout single “My Last” featuring Chris Brown, Big Sean promises he has another inspirational cut that should appeal to the masses.


“No I.D., we’ve got a song that’s going to change the world,” he promised. “It’s very inspiring. The inspiration, when you’re inspired, when you get inspired, that’s the best thing to do, through your music. I could tell you it’s an inspirational record that’s going to change the world. One verse, I rap from a perspective and the other, I rap from a crazy perspective. It’s a concept record, it’s crazy.”


And for those thinking that his newfound fame may alter his sound negatively, the witty wordsmith assures that his fan base will appreciate the growth in his music.


“I feel my new music is more reminiscent of my earlier work, only way better because I’m a way better rapper now. So I think that’s the best way to do it, to really take me back to what got me to where I am and just take it to another level.”
