Big Sean Talks “Grade A” Rappers Added To “Clique” & “I Don’t Like (Remix)”
A few hits have come out of The G.O.O.D. Music family such as Cruel from the album Cruel Summer which includes Big Sean, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Clique and “I Don’t Like” the remix by Chief Keef’s.
However, these were not the only rappers who offered there flows on the tracks. In an interview with Tim Westwood, Big Sean said “Grade A” rappers laid 16 bars to the songs but Kanye didn’t select them for the final cut.
“What happened on ‘Don’t Like’ is I got to it last. They didn’t even want me on the song and I heard it and was like, ‘Let me get a verse on this song,’” he said. “But look. There was other peple who did verses for that and they didn’t keep that shit but they kept mine. I can’t tell you [who]. A lot of people had verses to ‘Clique’ though. They were real legit verses, didn’t make it. Real grade-A rappers. Didn’t make it. Just me, ‘Ye and Jay-Z.”
Big Sean earlier expressed interest in partnering with Eminem to put together a track on his sophomore album Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player, and says that it’s a possibility since Em extended an invitation for them to vibe in the studio.
“Let me tell you something. Em reached out to me and was like, ‘Come to the studio, come hang out when you get a chance.’ We gon’ make that happen. He’s the legend right there,” he said.
