One day before Big Sean’s sophomore LP, Hall Of Fame arrives, The Source magazine releases their ‘Power 30‘ August/September 2013 issue and the G.O.O.D. Music rapper graces the first of two covers. This issue hits newsstand in New York City on Thursday, August 29th, and nationwide on Tuesday, September 3rd. Hall Of Fame drops at midnight! Below are some highlights:


On not caring how the public looks at him, what people say about him and trying to prove a point to himself more than anything:

“I don’t know, man. I don’t know how the public looks at me…But then I really don’t care anymore, too much, what people say because it’s kind of like I’m trying to prove a point to myself more than anything.”

On what it’s like to be among Hip-Hop heavyweights:

“Even though I got signed to Def Jam, they were like, ‘you got to give us a reason to put your album out.’ I had to give them incentive to put my album out over a Rick Ross album, or a Rihanna album. I had to show them that I could do something for ‘em.”

On his come-up from freestyling on the streets to be on a song with Jay-Z:

“I’m still young but, you know, it’s crazy going from the level I went from to the level I was at. Say you found somebody freestyling on the street right now. And they’re a kid. Then, in a matter of a few years, he’s on songs with Jay-Z. That’s a long way. It takes a lot of improving and getting better at making things happen.”
