Travi$ Scott brings together Big Sean and The 1975 for his debut album, Rodeo, as “Don’t Play” is set to turn it up this summer as the appropriate first single. Good flow and energy on this one from both Travis and Sean’s guest verse; plus the outro adds another level to it too. I can already see Mano and Holt playing this to a jam-packed Chicago crowd and everyone goin’ crazy. Vinylz, who most recently contributed on “Believe Me”, does a nice job producing “Don’t Play” so don’t play, and press play?!
NEW Big Sean today as he drops the new song/video for “1st Quarter Freestyle”. Watch and then download below. Directed by Mike Carson. Song Produced by KeY Wane. Additional Production by Travi$ Scott.
Sean definitely has a lot of nice moments on all these raps in 6 minutes. The beat is along the lines of other mean records like a “10 2 10” (after all, Wane and Scott were involved) yet this one doesn’t try to trump any rhymes by Sean. Thankfully the beat switches up across the 6 minutes, as does Sean’s flow. Overall, a *Tibs Fav. — the video just illustrates Sean rapping, which is what stands out about this experience. And to further reel you in, here’s a relevant reference to the NBA and some cool lines afterward too:
