Big Sean is hyped up and he has every reason to be. On Wednesday morning (July 6), the Detroit MC saw his rookie album, Finally Famous, snag the #3 spot on the Billboard albums chart, behind Beyoncé and Adele, at #1 and #2, respectively.
That isn't all, though. On Tuesday, the G.O.O.D. Music signee was in New York City shooting the video to his next single, "Marvin & Chardonnay," featuring Kanye West and directed by Hype Williams. Sean and Hype first collaborated on the rapper's 2009 video for "Getcha Some," but the rapper is excited to work again with the director he likens to basketball great Michael Jordan.
"It's great, it's fun, me and Hype are homeys. He's a real dude and it's tight being around people that you consider legends, and him just being so real," Sean told MTV News' Sway on the "Marvin & Chardonnay" set. "We came up in here and was just blasting DMX and all this different music. He gets inspired creatively from I don't know what; he just has these crazy ideas."
As far as details, Sean remained tight-lipped but promised the clip would be "classic" Hype, with eye-popping colors and high-end wardrobes. Sean was particularly fond of a yellow suit that he would be sporting in the vid and a pair of designer Versace shades similar to the ones made famous by the Notorious B.I.G. in the 1990s.
"Colors, the visualization, the whole what G.O.O.D. Music stands for is just that quality. Whatever we do is quality," Sean said. "If we gonna have girls, we gonna have the best girls. If we gonna have yellow suits, it's gonna be the best yellow suit. If we gonna have Versaces, it's gonna be the OG Medusa-head Versace."
