Big Sean – Halfway Off The Balcony

With Sean’s fourth studio-album ‘I Decided’ on the way, the latest offering shows more insight into what we can expect on the 3rd of February.

Initially, the hook is catchy, and we’re well aware of Big Sean’s capabilities with words, however, to be able to pen such a record, where he is ultimately venting yet the narrative of the song is nothing short of motivational, is no easy feat. Often an artist’s success and the change of lifestyle naturally pouring into their music, can distance them from the listener, yet with Halfway Off The Balcony, he manages to contain the authenticity and is able to stunt, whilst maintaining the balance with the overall emotive. Emphasising his hunger, drive, vulnerability and morals, producer Amaire Johnson and the Sean Don are able to really play upon the concept of the album.

If this track is anything to go by, and hoping the project stays true to the concept, then Big Sean has a very solid project that obviously will be well-received, but truly embraced, further establishing him amongst Rap’s elite.

Consequence – Whatever U Want (Remix) ft. Kid Cudi, Common, Big Sean, Kanye West & John Legend

The Good music family all step up for this remix and it is better than the original, each member comes through with their own style and the track just becomes entertaining, this may have been better as a Summer release, but when you have the financial status of those guys, they can fly wherever the suns out, so it somehow makes sense.

The features all provide depth to the track, a lot of variation too, you have the youthful essence of Kid Cudi, then Common steps in to provide some legendary flavour, setting up newcomer Big Sean who really stands out, up next is Mr West who does what nobody else can, Consequence balances that with a far more complex rhyme, John Legends voice provides the soul and a whole new element to the record, Consequence remains lyrical, Big Sean offers more with his delivery, Common is just Common, Kanye’s next verse is better, the best thing is that they all have short verses and trade with each other, they sound like a close unit, a strong team.

Personally, it would have been good to have Mr Hudson sing the chorus as John Legend sang on the original, but either way its a great song.
