Big Sean covers The Source's 16th annual Power 30 issue.
Big Sean is covering a big issue for The Source magazine, their 16th annual Power 30 list.
Peep the cover in the gallery above, and check out some excerpts from the interview below. The magazine will be on newsstands nationwide on September 3rd.
On his public persona: âI donât know, man. I donât know how the public looks at meâ¦But then I really donât care anymore, too much, what people say because itâs kind of like Iâm trying to prove a point to myself more than anything.â
OnÂ Hall of FameÂ delay: âEven though I got signed to Def Jam, they were like, âyou got to give us a reason to put your album out.â I had to give them incentive to put my album out over aÂ Rick RossÂ album, or a RihannaÂ album. I had to show them that I could do something for âem.â
On how far he's come:Â âIâm still young but, you know, itâs crazy going from the level I went from to the level I was at. Say you found somebody freestyling on the street right now. And theyâre a kid. Then, in a matter of a few years, heâs on songs with Jay-Z. Thatâs a long way. It takes a lot of improving and getting better at making things happen.â
[UPDATE: Juicy J And Dr. Luke Also Cover The Source]
The Source has unveiled a second cover for their annual Power 30 issue, this time going with Juicy J and Dr. Luke on the cover.
Peep their photo above, and excerpts below.
Dr. Luke on Juicy J's achievements: "Juicy J hasn't changed his name or style and he's still relevant. I don't think that kind of thing happens to ordinary people."
Juicy J on staying humble:Â "I went down toÂ Atlanta, got out the car, and passed out mixtapes with my street team. I was telling them, 'Look, I'm not ashamed to get out here and show you how I used to do this back in the day."
