“I see the skyscrapers in the back that sh*t is official…I got a lot on my mind…I got mo in my face…if I ain’t goin to get it that day is going to waste…tryin to move in my safe like my safe was the safehouse…I ain’t going out to eat, but these h*es stay on a stakeout…”
Today Big Sean’s album Dark Sky Paradise came out. It is a good collective of songs definitely worth the dollars.
“I always wanted to stunt so hard…I always wanted to ride that whip…I always wanted to f*ck that b*tch…thank you God I f*cked that b*tch…I always wanted to live this life…I always wanted to wear that ice…I always wanted paradise…I always wanted paradise…”
This album features great production & storytelling. It also features great artists like Kanye West, Drake, Chris Brown, Jhené Aiko, E-40, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Wayne, John Legend & Ariana Grande. From songs to ride to songs to make you think to songs for the club, it’s all there. Sean definitely put his all in this one.
“Man I look up to God…I wonder if I feel from the sky…would I hit the ground or would I learn how to fly…I’m pretty sure he see it in my eyes…sometimes I wonder if I already died…that sh*t gets deep…”
At the Behind the Mic event we attended, Big Sean said that he felt that this album was his best in terms of writing & I definitely agree. The lyricism is absolutely stepped up a notch. Sean is making a statement with this one. He definitely repped for Detroit.
“I hope you learn to make it on your own…and if you love yourself just know you’ll never be alone…I hope that you get everything you want & that you’re chose…I hope that it’s the realest thing that you ever know…I hope you get the pretty girls that’s prettier than everything…million dollar cribs havin million dollar dreams…and when you get it all just remember one thing…that one man could change the world…”
My favorites from the album are Blessings with Drake, All Your Fault where he goes back & forth with Kanye, I Know featuring Jhené Aiko, Paradise, & One Man Can Change The World, which he dedicated to his recently passed grandmother & features Kanye West & John Legend.
This album is a must hear. Definitely go to iTunes, Google Play or wherever you get your music & listen to Dark Sky Paradise.
