"Big Sean - Detroit 2"


          

I was never the biggest Big Sean fan, but this is a dope project and it helped me to realize a few things in comparison to the "others" (kenny, cole, drake)

He has an ability to switch flows and speeds effortlessly. Technically, as a rapper, I don't think many are as skilled at that as he is right now. It's not like he's complex or hard to follow, but it'll seem like he's having a conversation and before you know it you're bobbing your head because he's switched cadence on you, and you're grooving. To me, right now, he raps better than Drake.

He's efficient. I wouldn't say that they are all-world quotable bars, but there ain't much filler, he's always saying *something*. Maybe it's always been like that, but I found myself listening. like, really listening to what he's saying, and i appreciate that he wasn't wasting my time. Not that Cole is a time waster to me, but project for project, it feels like less filler on this one, for me at least.

I still feel like Kenny got him beat due to creativity, but it's a lot closer now than i would have admitted earlier.

anyway, it's a dope album, check it out

Never really gave him much thought, listened to this entire thing. First half is def stronger, but he is saying something in just about every song.

All I can think of to describe it is "younger mans, grown man rap" It's very reflective, inspiring at points and his cadence and flow are very listenable, even at faster cadences.

I'll prob go back to the catalog to see what I may have been missing.

i listened to this yesterday, and it is petty good. I never thought of him as "great", but I believe he is underrated a bit, definitely better than mediocre. His album from a few years back (Dark Sky Paradise?) was actually really good.

But this one didn't get it done.

He needs one of those 8 song top to bottom bangers and just showcase his dense lyricist style. No filler, no skits (although I liked the Detroit 2 skits), very few guest spots if any.
