Big Sean says he there's a lot of work ahead of him when it comes to his sophomore album and plans on releasing a mixtape in the near future.
At the 2012 BET Awards press conference, Detroit's Big Sean caught up with Real Talk NY to speak on both his sophomore album and his upcoming mixtape.
While Big Sean admitsÂ heâs only about seven songs into his next album, he also explained that he plans on focusing a lot more on the projectÂ following his trip toÂ France.
âI got about seven songs done for the solo album and a lot of them arenât even all the way done,â explainsÂ Sean. âSo you know we got a lot of work to do. Once I get back from France thatâs all Iâm doing is just these Summer Jams and my album and at the same time finishing off this mixtape. We got a lot of songs for that already.â
In the meantime,Â heÂ plans on releasing a mixtape which will likely be outÂ in a "few weeks" and will consist of tracks that didnât quite fit in with the overall feel of his sophomore album.
â[The] songs I just feel like are really good, but just donât fit the album. You know what Iâm saying? Donât fit where Iâm trying to take the album. Itâll probably be a lot of fan favorites though. Just like Finally Famous 3 was to a lot of people,â Big Sean explained. âYou know I havenât dropped a mixtape in like two years itâs just exciting to get back to that man.â
