Big Sean Releases New Song “What A Year”

Big Sean blessed our ears yesterday with a new track titled “What A Year”, while simultaneously clapping back at the individuals who broke into his home a few weeks ago.

Sean first dropped the cover art on Instagram, a letter that reads,

“To Whom It May Concern: 2015 Was the best year of my life, we counted a lot more wins than losses…And to me that’s worth more than damn near anything.”

The Detroit emcee then ended the letter with a message to the individuals, who burglarized his home,

“BTW, you took the wrong hard drive.”

#WhatAYear (Ft. @pharrell and @detailgo) Dropping at 10p.

Sean isn’t sweating the incident at all, and for good reason. Losing a thousands dollars worth of jewels isn’t much of a blow when you’re still holding on to a priceless catalog of unreleased material. Plus I’m sure the rapper had the jewels insured so it really isn’t a loss at all.

The track features hit makers Pharrell Williams and Detail. You can check out Big Sean’s ode to 2015, “What A Year” below.

Fly News: PUSHA T Announced President of G.O.O.D. MUSIC

Pusha T, the Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist and producer, and a key architect of today’s post-modern hip-hop/pop universe, has been appointed president, G.O.O.D. Music, it was announced today by label founder Kanye West.

Pusha recently spoke with Billboard about the G.O.O.D. News:

A big congratulations are in order. Just got word that you will be the president of G.O.O.D. Music. How was the offer presented you?

Actually, I was flying home and I had just got into my car at the airport. ‘Ye had called me and he was like, “Tell me something. What do you think about being the president of G.O.O.D. Music?” And I was like, “Well, what are the things that you’re looking for?” And he was basically just like, to manicure the label, make it profitable and be very business-oriented about it going forward in a manicured type of way.

In addition to his new role at G.O.O.D. Music, Pusha T is a co-founder(with his brother Gene “No Malice” Thornton) of Play Cloths, a successful Street wear line, and as an early investor in Mass Appeal. Pusha T is also a frequent collaborator with the adidas Originals brand, most recently taking part in the brand’s Spring / Summer ‘Superstar’ 2015 campaign.

In a perfect world, what would G.O.O.D. Music look like to you in the next five months?

I just look at capitalizing on everything that I feel like G.O.O.D. Music brings to the music industry, our following, and the culture. First of all, we have incredible artists. It’s definitely about getting those albums out in a very manicured fashion. We have great artistic talent that sort of walk the lines of bringing that excitement back in regards to just the art that goes along with it like DONDA, the merch and things like that. Things that kids are really into these days. You see how fashion takes over and these pop-up shops take over and how the music business is a real touring business now, just the things associated with it. Just building it out to make sure that everybody on the label is really capitalizing off of all the assets that really come with GOOD Music, that we really started, that we’ve really been good at. Just really executing all the different avenues of music, art, culture and fashion as well.

Since 2011, G.O.O.D. Music (Getting Out Our Dreams) has been signed to an exclusive worldwide label agreement with Def Jam Recordings, a division of Universal Music Group (UMG). G.O.O.D. Music is currently home to an acclaimed artist roster that includes Big Sean, Q-Tip, Teyana Taylor, Kacy Hill, and Pusha T himself, among others. G.O.O.D. Music has amassed scores of certified gold, platinum, and multi-platinum selling albums and singles.

Since his signing to G.O.O.D. Music in 2010, Pusha T has garnered an impressive track record. He was featured with Kanye West in 2010, on the RIAA platinum “Runaway” from Mr. West’s classic album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In 2012, Pusha T took the lead on a number of tracks from Kanye West’s influential Cruel Summer album, most notably the #1 triple-platinum “Mercy” (with Big Sean and 2 Chainz). Pusha T has been featured on literally dozens of tracks by such artists as Lorde, Puffy Daddy, Jeezy, Future, The-Dream, Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Chris Brown and has become a sought after collaborator with EDM’s biggest names following the success of his track “Burial” with Yogi and Skrillex. Throughout 2015 Pusha T’s music has scored many of the biggest moments in film, television and commercials providing the soundtrack for everything from adidas campaigns to the VMAs. Pusha T’s 2013 debut solo album for G.O.O.D. Music, My Name Is My Name, entered the Billboard Hip-Hop Album Chart at #2.

Pusha T (born Terrence Thornton in the Bronx) emerged in the fertile hip-hop music scene centered in Virginia Beach, not far from where he grew up in Norfolk. In 1992, he and his brother Gene formed the much revered, platinum selling rap duo the Clipse.

Congrats Pusha T!

Fly Interview: ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Cast Talks Movie Roles, Drake Vs. Meek Mill Beef & more

 

straight outta compton cast

O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube), Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) and Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre) have all encompassed their roles to the point where it’s quite scary how well they play each of their characters in the upcoming movie biopic, which hit theaters on Friday, August 14th.

During the interview, the fellas spoke on the pressures behind playing someone that they’ve idolized for so long.

[O’Shea] on playing the role of his very own Father, Ice Cube: 

It had to audition for two years before I got the role. And then, after that I had a chemistry test with [these two: Jason & Corey] and like two other [Cube’s] and like three [Dre’s], and Universal Studios still had to pick the right man for the job. It’s a crazy amount of pressure because it’s my family’s legacy.

O’Shea admits that he may follow in his Father’s footsteps and pursue more music (says he gave Big Sean a nudge recently on the subject, as he laughs). But, for now acting is his main priority, he says.

[Corey] on why he thinks they were casted: 

They wanted it to be authentic. They wanted it to be right, and they weren’t looking for impersonations. They could’ve found guys that looked and sound exactly like them, but they wanted people who they knew could do the work and just capture the legacy of N.W.A.

[Jason] says: 

They took the fear away from us by letting us know…”you guys are right for the job. we pitched you guys for a reason. All the impersonations and all of the problems that you think you guys are going to have physically, we’re going to give you the tools to feel comfortable, but in the meantime, just to be here to support you guys.”

On the Drake vs Meek Mill: 

It looks like there’s about six rounds left in the fight, so let’s not count it out completely. But we all know what the judges cards are looking like at this point. It’s been a knockdown in the fight! He got up but lets just see where it goes.
