ial. This really turned me off of listing to Bis Sean. But I figured this was his first release to get himself out there. But I digress.
Then about a year ago he released his mix tape Detroit. This album really changed my opinion of Sean. In this mix tape he really steed up his game, and i feel really found himself musically, after that i became a big fan. Then he announced his sophomore release, Hall of fame. I was very excited.
I was scared hall of fame would be like finally famous. But I waited patiently.
It was finally released, but i was scared after hearing MILF, i waited to listen to it...'
But I finally got to it, and how i regret not picking it up the second it hit stores.
With HOF he picks right up where he left off on Detroit. The album is very well done. The beats, perfect. His flow has gotten sicker, and lyrically he has gotten so much better. I like how some songs have a purpose compared to alot of rap anymore. The whole album through and through just feels complete and flows well with no hiccups (except Freaky & MILF) This really stands out from the recent rap releases.
Just pick this up, you will not regret it. He one of the best rappers out at in this time of rap mediocrity.… Expand
Jul 23, 2014Hall Of Fame is a huge lyrical and subject matter leap for Big Sean from his debut album. His pure rapping ability is still second-tier atHall Of Fame is a huge lyrical and subject matter leap for Big Sean from his debut album. His pure rapping ability is still second-tier at best, but if he continues to put effort into making his music more artistic Sean has a bright future in the rap game. Big Sean, in the lead-up to this album's release, said he wanted to teach and make a lasting impact on peoples' lives with this album. I can't speak for others but, personally, I think he succeeded. ~ 8.0/10
Best tracks: "Nothing Is Stopping You", "Fire", "Beware", "MILF" (I've seen many people hate on this song because they view it as an attempt at a radio song. It's clearly a joke, and his flow and hilarious lyrics make it a great song. Also, it wasn't released as a single which indicates Sean viewed it as more of a funny story rather than an attempt at a club banger.), "Ashley" & "Guap"… Expand
Jan 10, 2014Big Sean's album in terms of production was raw and very electronic, and does hold similarities to how Yeezus sounded. This can be observed inBig Sean's album in terms of production was raw and very electronic, and does hold similarities to how Yeezus sounded. This can be observed in songs such as 10 2 10 and Mona Lisa. Hall of Fame, as described by Big Sean, does have some songs that make others feel good and motivated. It makes us want to chase our dreams and achieve big. This is evident through songs such as Nothing Is Stopping You, First Chain and Fire. With the Detroit mixtape to keep us fans listening, he dropped a remix to Mula, a fan favourite from the mixtape. Featured on the remix were rappers Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and Earlly Mac who kept the track staying brilliant. Overall, Hall of Fame was a successful album.… Expand
Aug 27, 2013I have been patiently waiting for Hall of Fame and I am glad that in a summer of mediocre rap releases, Big Sean builds upon his debut albumI have been patiently waiting for Hall of Fame and I am glad that in a summer of mediocre rap releases, Big Sean builds upon his debut album and pretty much kills it. Lyrically he has stepped his game up and aside from a few clunkers (MILF in particular) the album is pretty consistent. My favourite tracks on it are Fire, First Chain (Nas and Cudi kill it!) and Ashley. I think this album lets Big Sean step a little out of the Kanye West/Good Music shadow and reps it all himself.… Expand

With the "Detroit" mixtape and "Hall of Fame" I hold them as his best and also as a new bright start for the kid. Big Sean has improved, it's heard here. Lyrically got the skill up and as an artist he's gotten better. The beat selection's are crazy, top notch production and as most rapper's lacks in he dosen't choose unneccesary guest features. Rapper's such as Nas, Kid Cudi and Nicki Minaj did bring some extra fire, and the coice of singer's did bring some fine hooks and catchy meleodies. He sounds more thrilled with his sophmore, he shows all more emotion with the writing and also playing off with his more comedic side.
Big Sean got lines, I will be having this on replay, my interest in this dude got so much bigger thanks to this. He got some tracks I'm really loving ("Fire", "First Chain", "World Ablaze" and the wonderful one "Ashley"), songs like "MILF" and "10 2 10" actually worked for me too.
He didn't disappoint me with this, I went in with my expectations low and he really took it with honor and proud. "Hall of Fame" is for sure a better one than many mainstream album's that released over the summer. As a lyricist and especially as a songwriter, Big Sean has gotten more hungrier and focused.
This hasn't been giving too much plays, but we'll see were this stands in some months. A top release within the mainstram scene. Go and cop it if you like it, give it a try, could be some you like. Support hip hop!… Expand
