G.O.O.D Music’s Big Sean kept his word on delivering a must-hear “Deep Reverence” song to the masses. The rap heavyweight’s new record lives up to the hype and features the late, great Nipsey Hussle.
Big Sean’s Kendrick Lamar Relationship
On the new record, Sean Don references his relationship with West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar. B.I. specifically reveals he spoke to Lamar following Hussle’s death in March 2019.
On the track, Big Sean references Kendrick Lamar. “After what happened to Nipsey I reached out to Kendrick/There wasn’t even no real issues there to begin with/Lack of communication and wrong information from people fueled by the ego it’s like mixing flames with diesel.” Sean downplayed rumored tensions between him and Kendrick in an interview with Joe Budden earlier this year.
