Big Sean is having a phenomenal year thus far. With his newest album Dark Sky Paradise reaching #1 on the Billboard charts, there’s nothing that could bring him down from the golden cloud he’s been floating on. After spending years on the grind, it was only a matter of time before Sean made it to the big leagues. Since his debut in 2007, we’ve seen him jump from an amateur rapper from Detroit to one of Kanye West’s go-to lyricists. Since then, other popular artists like Meek Mill, Calvin Harris and rapping duo Rae Sremmurd have been blessed with Sean’s memorable verses for their own tracks.
Between his releases, Sean traded bars with the likes of Grand Hustle’s Travis $cott, Drake, Meek Mill, Logic and plenty more. His flow is one that anyone can differentiate amongst a cipher of rappers. His word choice has broken barriers that some traditional lyricists have struggled with his analogies and double entendres placing him among the upper echelon of his peers.
With #CRWN quickly approaching, we decided to break down and rank Sean’s best featured verses thus far.
