Big Sean explains how a “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” studio session with Jay-Z and Ye went wrong.
While fans are anticipating Big Sean’s entire rebuttal to Kanye West’s dismissive remarks about the former G.O.O.D. Music signee, as well as anecdotes about Jhené Aiko and Dave Chappelle, a new footage suggests that Big Sean has even more bizarre personal accounts up his sleeve. The latest tape from his upcoming interview with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN, according to HipHopDX, has the What You Expect musician revealing how a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy recording session with Ye, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé took a turn for the worse. As many of you may know, Ye joined Big Sean, Beyoncé, and Charlie Wilson on the MBDTF extra track “See Me Now,” which is generally forgotten.
However, Sean came dangerously close to losing Ye and Hov’s trust after a behind-the-scenes photo from one of those sessions was published on Twitter.
“We down there working on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in Hawaii,” Big Sean recalled. “I’m out there playing my role, but I brought my mans with me in case I needed anything, he was going to help hold me down … It’s good to have a support system, to have one of your homie’s there when you trying to contribute.”
“So anyway, I’m in a studio — it was me, Ye and Hov. Even then, I wasn’t trying to be thirsty or sneak a fucking picture,” Sean continued. “I’m here just taking it in mentally. He ends up taking a picture of all of us in the studio. Didn’t tell me. He ends up tweeting it and it gets picked up on AllHipHop and things like that.”
Kanye West and Jay-Z approached an up-and-coming Big Sean about the leak after hearing about it.
“I don’t know who saw it, but it got to either Ye or Hov’s attention and they thought it was me!” Big Sean revealed. “It didn’t make any sense because I wasn’t even really on at that time and it was like, ‘Kanye, JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Big Sean.’ People were like, ‘Who the fuck is Big Sean?!’ It looked like I planted this shit.”
“I explained to [Kanye] who it was and he was like, ‘You gotta fucking fire him. We’ve all done this, we’ve hired the people that we love. But people were mad at you thinking that you were being thirsty. And it was your mans,'” Sean explained. “So I told [my friend], ‘I’m in a position where it’s Ye and Hov saying you gotta go. I’m sorry bro, we gotta figure out something else.'”
Big Sean claims that he and his companion are still in love. “But, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise,” the Grammy nominee explained. “He ended up changing his life and becoming far more successful than he would have been in his previous position. He became a teacher and had a huge impact on the lives of a lot of people by doing fantastic, wonderful things.”
