Fans are anxiously waiting to see what Kanye West and crew have cooked up with the pending G.O.O.D. Music collaboration album, and according to Big Sean they should expect the unexpected. In a recent interview with Complex magazine, Sean said he wasn't sure how fans would react when they hear the direction in which the album has gone.

"There are a whole bunch of songs on the album that I wonder what the world is going to think, but it really don’t matter," he said. "We like it. That’s all that matters. You do what you want to do and if you like it, you like it. If you don’t, you keep hating."

Sean said he was confident that the G.O.O.D. Music album would stand up to other projects released by rival crews.

"I’ve heard a lot of the collaborations. I’ve heard what people have been doing. Of course you’re going to listen to it and try to make your music the best, so that’s what we’ve been doing — making our music the best it can be. The best quality, the best raps, the best concepts, and it’s going to be unique," he said.

As for his own pending sophomore album, the Detroit rapper said he worked with his new producer KeY Wane (of Meek Mill's "Amen"), No I.D. and Young Chop among others. The album doesn't yet have a name, but is due to come out this year.

"When I was playing it for Common, he was losing his mind. J. Cole was blown away," Sean said of the project. "It really is elevating, taking it to a different level. I don’t even want to hype it up or talk too much like, 'Yeah, my album is the s--t!' I just can’t wait for everyone to hear what I’ve been doing, what I’ve been cooking up."
