Big Sean recently stopped by DJ Whoo Kid's Shade 45 radio show and discussed working with Eminem, his new album Hall Of Fame and his relationship with Kanye West, among other things. He also defended his self-appointed status as one of the best rappers currently out.

"I feel like I deserve that," said the Detroit emcee. "My album could have been way better and I was still finding myself as an artist. So what I'm saying is I don't know why people don't consider Big Sean as one of the best rappers when I'll hop on a song with anybody and I'll kill it and have a stand out verse... I would consider Kanye and Jay Z the best, you consider Drake the best, you consider J. Cole the best, when I can hop on a song with him and have a stand out verse and arguably a better verse than them... that's the point of Hall Of Fame, I wanted to make an album that gives me more leverage."

Sean also feels he shouldn't need a feature from Kanye West for people to dig his music. 

"There was a song that me and Kanye had, but it really just didn't fit the album," he said. "I did five goddam five songs with Kanye - man, like ya'll want another? Niggas shouldn't fuck with me 'cause I got a song with Kanye... I want people to fuck with me for me man."

Do you think Sean should be considered a top emcee at this point? Let us know what you think.
