Big Sean Spent Over 12 Hours In The Studio With Eminem, Calls New Album “Classic”

(AllHipHop News) If Big Sean is feeling the sophomore jinx jitters it is no where evident in his candor recently. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 25 year old rap star called his upcoming album Hall of Fame a “classic.”

While he considers Hall Of Fame a classic already he does put his proclamation in some much needed context:

“But I don’t want to hype it up too much or anything,” he says. “People hear ‘classic’ and they expect like Jesus Christ to be on there rapping. What I mean by ‘classic’ is it’s a pure body of work; there’s quality songs.”

Sean also spoke on his infamous studio session with Eminem that was sparked by a photo of the two of them in the studio posted on Sean’s personal Instagram account. He reveals that he spent 12 hours in the studio with his Detriot idol and promises a collaboration:

“That was probably one of the best days of my life,” he says of meeting Eminem. “Not only because I met Em’ and we talked and exchanged stories, but because not only was I playing him my music but he was just so enthusiastic about it and loved it. He was rapping my lines back to me.” Sean was hoping Eminem would hop on his album, but the rapper was too busy working on his next solo effort. Says Sean: “I’m sure you guys will get a Big Sean-Eminem collaboration sooner or later.”

    For some reason I doubt it’s a classic. I’m not saying it has anything to do with Sean being a cornball.

    • Ok…then I will.

      Big Sean is a cornball and there won’t be anything classic about this album. It might do Ron Artest / K Fed #’s & go Triple wood.

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        hahahah He might and I mean might go triple wood maybe.

      • *IF…and that’s a big “IF” he’s lucky!

        If “IF” was a fifth ( 1/5 of liquor) we’d be drunk!

      • DJ7

        He sounds like a teenaged white girl imho…if that’s what you’re into I guess it’s not a problem…?…how do you spend 12hrs in a studio with another rapper & said rapper can’t find time in those 12hrs to spit a quick 16 for your project b/c he’s too busy working on his own… Huh???

      • >> In Kevin Hart’s voice : “Well, you see the way my checking account is set up…..”

        Em ain’t fuggin with Big Sean yet, the industry isn’t behind him, meaning no money for Em…or not enough. It’s not like with KRS or Black Thought, or some one with skills that might make Em want to be on a track with them.

        Trash in an open ziploc bag, on a hot summer day > Big Sean

      • DJ7

        Of course Em’s not…thus him coining his project a “classic” is irrational….that would be like saying, it’s so dope that his idol didn’t want to feature on a track as to not disturb the brilliance of such a magnificent masterpiece…this cat has officially fallen into the delusional category shared by many of his new school comrads

      • Hahahaa! That about sums it up, along with Em’s left hand in his own pocket!

        Em ain’t fuggin with him…even though he’s trying to save the city.

    • cromthelaughinggod7

      He reminds me of Sharmar moore trying to rap. He is just corny! I agree with Ed he raps about as good as K Fed homie is not completely wack but he is not that good for a Detroit rapper. He fits in D12 category!

      • trixnkix637

        I hope you’re excluding Big Proof out of that last part of your comment, because he my friend, could spit.

      • Bizarre > Big Sean

      • trixnkix637

        Damn that’s cold bruh! lol. I always have to fast forward through Bizarre’s parts.

      • LOL~N
        Sad but true….at least you have Bizarre in the rotation….when have you ever put a Big Sean track on?

      • trixnkix637

        Real talk.. It really doesn’t happen haha.

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        He wasn’t saying Bizarre is a dope mc you didn’t get the sarcasm in the comment! Bizarre is wack but he was saying that even he is better than Big sean! Hey I think Danny Brown is a better rapper than him. D Brown is weird and I thought he was a tranny at first that is one ugly nigga next to lil weezy!

      • don king

        danny brown is way better than corny sean.

      • trixnkix637

        Nah I caught the sarcasm bruh. I was just agreeing with the big homie.

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        Cool what do you think about Elzhi? I think he is better than Royce and just as nice as Em.

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        hahahahahah I agree!

      • brotha_man

        d12 is garbage.

      • Big Sean is garbage in a sealed ziploc, on the hottest day of the year, in record breaking humidity.

        Hot Trash

      • brotha_man

        damn e slow down….but you right

      • >>Adjust tie & offers tacit apology

        “Pardon me, I was watching the Trinidad vs Pop’kins replay an got caught up in the hype,”

        >> Coughs 2x

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        He wasn’t really D12 he was with eminem before D12 my dude! He was rhyming before that group! Proof was dope! The Rest of D12 wack!

      • brotha_man

        guity simpson, J Dilla, Black milk, angel haze, dayton family (flint), esham, gwoon squad, slim village are prob the best in the “d” – an outsiders perspective

    man all those corny dudes call their albums classics now. if u have 2 say it, its definitely not a classic! the fans decide wich album is a classic, not the artists. fans say it is 1 = it is a classic, artist says it = corny n desperate.

  • dayleedumped

    big sean barely ever rap anything meaningful. name some of his old shit that people playing still?

    Eminem is the MOST OVERRATED rapper of all time. He can spit no doubt, but his albums are garbage and I hate slim shady.


      I don’t like slim shady either but ……………..” He can spit no doubt, but his albums are garbage” WTF……so what are you saying he can freestyle but cant put together an album?

      • True_Fan

        No Eminem has great songs, but the totality of his albums are trash. Too much talk about raping and killing women, he basically raps like white trash most of the time.

      • Malik

        I agree to an extent…it’s true his subject matter doesn’t resonate with brothers but he’s got syllables and rhythmic patterns locked within rhythmic patterns for days and that makes him ‘okay’ in my book. I don’t know what some folks mean when they call him the GOAT and I don’t care what Caucasians think either…99.9% of them don’t know jack about what constitutes a dope emcee

      • KillaKatona

        go listen to riff raff faggot

      • brotha_man

        riff raff is garbage…i’ll give yall paul wall, but riff raff sucks

      • brotha_man

        i’d say yela wolf, brother ali, MGK (although im not a fan),and asher roth are the best “white” rappers right now.

        notable mention: lil wyte

      • you crazy, marshall mathers LP is actually a classic.

    • Sandusky

      Stfu you clown. Eminem is the GOAT hands downs.

    • brotha_man

      i dont think i have ever rode to an whole Em album…..single yes, album no

    • most overrated rapper??? LOL i think that might go to jay z and his massive dick riding of biggie

  • Opposite Of Everyone

    No Medium Sean, by ‘Classic’ we mean an album that can stand the test of time. Something that will be comparable to the likes of say –

    Ready To Die, Critical Beatdown, It Takes A Nation of Millions, Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop, DoggyStyle, Reasonable Doubt etc…

    Still sure it’s definitely a ‘Classic’ ?

    If you’re in the studio with Em for over 12 hours, and you don’t get a single verse from ‘Em, he truthfully probably isn’t impressed.

    This zeek sean dude is fukin awful.. He say hes the out raps all the heavy hitters . Wen his main song is just ASS ASS ASSS gtfoh

  • coast

    The term “classic “is used too loosely these days. A) It’s up to the fans to decide if an album is a classic. B) Definition of classic-
    Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      its not even that you gotta let the fans decide that … its too late by him saying that he already over hyped his project lol

  • ItGoesDownINtheDM

    lol em is in the studio with big sean for 12hrs but is too busy to collab lol i think in a suttle way em is saying you make good music but nothing good enuff for me to jump on LOL !!

  • big fawn calling his own album a classic thats funny doe…
