Whoa there. Detroit season is not finished yet. Big Sean recently took to his social media to confirm that his new album is “done.” The D-town rapper has confirmed that the album will be called Dark Sky Paradise by revealing the cover art on his Instagram.
The announcement couldn’t have come at a better time. Sean detailed what he has in store for the album in the cover story of Complex’s Feb/March issue. The “IDFWU” rapper sat down with Damien Scott and explained that the album reflects upon the last year of his life and career as a whole. With his new management deal and his new girl, the G.O.O.D Music rapper definitely has a lot to talk about. He spoke on rumors about his break-up with “Glee” star Naya Rivera. Sean also commented on his notorious ‘Control’ track with Kendrick Lamar’s famous verse and why it was cut from his Hall Of Fame album.
“Looking back on it, it was a different vibe than my album,” he said about the song. “There’s a lot of negativity on that song, and I don’t f— with negative s—. People love drama, people love bulls—. I knew when Kendrick did that name-dropping, that it was just gonna set it off… I never wanna shade anybody. I would’ve been a ho-ass n—- if I cut that out of his verse, or if I didn’t put the song out.”
His upcoming body of work is set to feature a blended team of producers including DJ Mustard, DJ Dahi, Boi-1da and Vinylz. He’ll also be bringing in Travis Scott, PARTYNEXTDOOR, E-40, Kanye West, Jhené Aiko, and Drake to contribute to the album. No release date has been confirmed as of yet, however we should be hearing more information on that soon.
