In the interview, Sean seems mostly concerned with creating timeless music. He says it’s cool to display different rap flows and cadences, but “I don’t make a album to show you that all the time. I made this album because there are moments that live longer than. A lot of the flows that people think are dope, two years from now [there will] be doper flows and those songs don’t even matter no more. [Those songs] ain’t helping nobody cope with their life. As opposed to songs like ‘World A Blaze’ can relate to somebody forever. It can relate to somebody whose mom has cancer.”
Big Sean says what brought emotional moments like that home for him, was when a girlfriend of his had cancer.
“Hall Of Fame” is a great piece of work, and is a great example of a new group of rappers who seem ready to take rap to the next generation.
