Detroit’s Big Sean has shared accounts from the timeline that landed him where he is today, and wrapped them up in a sophomore attempt called Hall of Fame.
Happy Monday morning to everyone, hope the weekend was good to you. Start the week of with some new tunes courtesy of Blues & Beats Volume 79. If you’ve followed for awhile, you’ll know AHM always has love for Teen Daze and Gilbere Forté, well this past week the two of them brought the heat (separately). We also have fresh ones from Stalley, London Grammar, Majid Jordan, DIANA and more.
PS. Once again, i’ve gone with a new design, and this has to be my favourite thus far, what do you think?

It’s Monday, and the people over at G.O.O.D. have revealed the fourth single from the upcoming record. Talib Kweli and Big Sean both dropped free mixtapes, both of which, I advise you download in full (to the right, to the right). Rihanna enlists the unorthodox A$AP Rocky for her latest single, and TDE’s Black Hippy is on the grind as per usual.
Also included, new material from Miguel, Band of Horses, Teen Daze, Disclosure, Colin Munroe and more.
Almost two weeks ago, Big Sean announced via YouTube he was dropping a new mixtape. Well that tape is here and it’s called Detroit. One of G.O.O.D. Music’s youngest artists has failed to disappoint in just a few years in the industry. Following a trilogy of mixtapes, Sean was set for his debut record Finally Famous, and the name didn’t lie. With the help of Kanye West, No I.D. and all their connections, the LP was a massive hit. After the consummation into the game, Big hit the road on a tour that still has yet to cease. The features started rolling in, including the platinum “Mercy,” with his label mates, as well as hooking up Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and more. So here we are today, with Cruel Summer on the edge of our iTunes libraries, Big Sean gives us Detroit. Along with some storytelling from Common, Jeezy and Snoop, he enlists Cole, K.Dot, CB, French, Royce and more for the features. Not to mention, the production line-up includes bangers from Hit-Boy, Lex Luger, Key Wane, Don Cannon, Young Chop and other talented visionaries.
