    Big Sean's Best Wordplay On "Dark Sky Paradise"
    Feb 24, 2015 at 12:13pm
    Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever. These rhymes will have you doing double-takes, and by the time the lyrics click, Sean's already bars ahead.

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him. While it may not be an instant classic, it's shaping up to be Big Sean's most cohesive project yet.

    Things turned down a few notches after last week, which isn't a bad thing considering how crazy that week was. Kanye West returned to The Breakfast Club, and that was pretty much the biggest thing. We're still on the look out for his album and Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise.

    If it weren't for the weird for-pay nature of Drake's new "mixtape" then all five of these tracks would come from the 6 God. That's not to say the rest of the week was terrible.

    This week has been a mixed bag, which is unfortunate since it started off good. Missy Elliott came back, messed around and stole Iggy Azalea's Super Bowl performance. Will this put impetus on Missy E to put out a new album soon? One can hope.

    After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week. That means it's back to covering three big tracks that dropped this week, and this time around, they're taken from all corners of the hip-hop spectrum. First, Action Bronson paired up with The Alchemist for a dusty gem, then Cannibal Ox returned with DOOM in tow for one of their space-age anthems, and the last track on the list... well, you know what the biggest song of the week was.

    Every February, Power 106 gathers a few artists to melt some hearts at their "Valentine's Crush" concert, and the initial lineup for 2015's event has just gone public. In a tweet that went out this morning, the L.A. radio station confirmed an R&B-heavy lineup for the show, which makes sense considering the theme of the event. Mila J, Rico Love, Eric Bellinger, Ne-Yo, and John Legend will be present, as will the one outlier, Big Sean, both the only rapper, and clear Anti-Valentines choice with his breakup smash "I Don't Fuck With U" still in heavy rotation.
