Big Sean Talks Roc Nation Signing

Detroit rapper says new boss Jay Z is "personally involved."

Published September 15, 2014

G.O.O.D Music rapper Big Sean is now a member of two of the biggest camps in music with his new management deal with Roc Nation, and he wants to make clear that there is no conflict. He says he plans to take direction from both companies, headed by Kanye West and Jay Z, respectively.

“I’ve had management before, but this is just on another level,” Sean told Complex News. “Like Hov, he’s personally involved.”

West is still playing a major role, too, despite rumors to the contrary. “I know when we announced that we were doing business with Roc Nation people were like ‘You Left G.O.O.D Music?’ But just to clarify, it’s all fam, and Kanye is still all G.O.O.D. Music on the forefront."

“We are not a group we are a label," the "Beware" rapper continued to explain. "We all came together for Cruel Summer."

With that said, fans can expect Sean, who just dropped a new sneaker with Adidas, to continue to focus on the follow-up to his 2013 release Hall of Fame. Sean released four new tracks on Friday (Sept. 12) to commemorate his union with Roc Nation, which included the Yeezy, DJ Mustard and DJ Dahi-produced “IDFWY,” featuring E-40.

“I never want to try to do the same thing again, I feel like that is so wack as an artist,” Sean added about his next chapter. “Detroit was something different, Hall of Fame was something different than Detroit and the next thing I do will be something different.”

Sean’s new album is right around the corner, he said, and he promises we won't have to wait long for a release date. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
