EDITORS’ NOTES

Averting the sophomore slump with authority, Big Sean looks to place himself among the rap elite with Hall of Fame. On an effort that's ambitious from start to finish, the Detroit MC demonstrates his range on everything from the melody-driven single "Beware" to the gospel-inspired banger "Fire." Joined by an all-star cast of guests including Lil' Wayne ("Beware"), Nicki Minaj ("Milf"), Nas ("First Chain"), and Miguel ("Ashley"), Sean displays enough lyrical growth to establish himself as a hip-hop heavyweight in his own right. As he says on the introspective closer, "All Figured Out": "It isn't about the award/It's about the award of being immortalized."
