Big Sean “What A Year” f/ Pharrell & Detail

It’s only natural that we all reflect on the year that was on the last couple days that was. That’s exactly what Big Sean does here, but so engaging in a rap song featuring Pharrell and Detail.

If only we all could do the same, but it’s just a long Facebook status instead. Alas, I digress…

The song itself is something I vibe with. Big Sean recalls a lot of the highs, but does so more casually than boasting. I just appreciate that he always puts on for his city like one of the few #WhatAYear tweets he posted before the track dropped (below). There are moments in each verse that I didn’t totally connect with (like when Sean got into spelling mode) but it doesn’t kill it for me and overall, Seandon does his thing. The Neptunes vibe that Pharrell and Detail put on helps carry this one too.

Give it a spin here:
