Big Sean invites 2 Chainz and Future to the studio. Check out some footage from the session and hear music presumably off Sean's next album.
From the looks of things, Big Sean will soon release his fourth studio album. At the end of August, he revealed that he had enlisted the ears of Rick Rubin as well as Jay Z to get an early listen of the album, which he said was "almost ready." This weekend, he allowed the project to be heard by two more A-listers, Future and 2 Chainz.
2 Chainz, an honorary member of Sean's GOOD Music, shared some footage from the session. In one Instagram clip, he sounds incredibly faded as he clowns Sean for seemingly bluffing about wanting to record a collaboration for his new album. But both Tity and Future seem to be liking what they hear. At this point, it's unclear if either Atlanta rapper will appear on the project, though Future would be a perfect feature on the below snippet, of a song that might be titled "Bounce Back." It sounds like the ghostly trap beat comes from Metro Boomin, especially considering the laughing sample that was used on Savage Mode.
This next instrumental, which Future is certainly feeling, also sounds like a winner. These new snippets come about a month after Mike Will Made-It previewed a forthcoming collab between him and Sean. Though the details are still scant, it does seem like Sean has been taking inspiration from some of the best in Atlanta.
Sean's upcoming album will be his first solo project since Dark Sky Paradise, released in early 2015. Earlier this year, he teamed up with Jhene Aiko for an 8-track collaborative album entitled TWENTY88.
