After a minor hiccup (an unfinished version of “She,” presumably featuring Common, got leaked online yesterday), Big Sean debuts the first track from his upcoming sophomore album, Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player.
Produced by hotshot beatmakers Young Chop (Chief Keef “I Don’t Like”) and KeY Wane (Meek Mill “Amen”), the single blends trap-style hi-hats with a sprightly steel drum sequence, making for an unusual radio-friendly-come-streetwise jam. Sean, meanwhile, sticks to the script by rapping ’bout that good (I mean G.O.O.D.) life, dropping those familiar “boiii” ad-libs every now and then for good measure.
Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player is due out in stores Dec. 18.
