Big Sean Talks “Mercy,” New Mixtape “F.F.O.E.” and G.O.O.D. Music Album


(AllHipHop News) Over the weekend, Big Sean stopped by Power 106’s “New @ 2” with Yesi Ortiz and Justin Credible and talked about a whole host of topics, including how his verse from the recently released G.O.O.D. Music track “Mercy” came together and how his future plans include a new mixtape and album.

“I feel like it set the Internet on fire,” Big Sean proclaimed on Power 106. “Kanye came through with “Theraflu” so it was just a one-two punch and “Mercy” just really knocked them out. It’s fun, we’re just having fun on that. Kanye had the beat on one night after Watch the Throne and we was just freestyling to it and that’s what I freestyled.

“I just went right for the verse and added that swerve in there which is my new ad-lib,” he continued. “It was just all fun man, and then Pusha came later and 2 Chainz, but I had that first verse to it for awhile. When Kanye would play the song for people before it came out it would just be my verse.”

The discussion also touched upon the highly-anticipated new album from the G.O.O.D. Music camp, set to be released this Spring, “We in the studio everyday and every night. New songs, new singles, the G.O.O.D. Music album, what I love most about it is that it’s so many different sounds, I really feel like it’s going to change the world. It’s just an exciting time in my life.”

Sean also revealed that Nicki Minaj, who collaborated with the Detroit native on the remix to his double-platinum hit single “A$$,” will be making an appearance on his new album. He continued by dropping tidbits about his upcoming collaborating with the YMCMB camp, “We’ve got a couple of things in the works. We’ve got some stuff with [Lil] Wayne coming, I did some stuff with DJ Khaled for his new album, and I just did a video with Tyga the other day too for “I’m Gone” off his album.”

He also hinted that he’s got something in the works with his long-time friend and collaborator Mike Posner, as well as teen-sensation Justin Beiber that will be released in the near future.

Lastly, Big Sean spoke on his new mixtape that he says he’s doing strictly for the “people who have been rocking with me… That’s for the fans who were supporting before all of that who just need that. I just need that to take care of them so I already know that’s coming but I’ve been working on four things at once, so it’s just like we’ve got to make sure everything comes out at the right time.”

F.F.O.E. (Finally Famous Over Everything) currently has no release date. The G.O.O.D. Music compilation is scheduled for release in Spring 2012.
