Album Review: Big Sean – Dark Sky Paradise

Editor's Review

Summary

Big Sean evolves from corny, self-induced flop into the respectable, venomous emcee we've seen glimpses of but never on a consistent basis.

With two mediocre albums under his belt, Big Sean seeks to produce his third LP which can finally compete, at least, with Hip Hop heavyweights and be taken seriously as a rapper.

The penny has dropped, realising Sean is not just full of goofy one-liners like: “Build a house up on that ass, that’s an ass-tate” but is capable of creating a whole project seeping beautiful, compelling and intensive gems.

The stand out tracks on ‘Dark Sky Paradise’ are some of the best of his entire career, ‘Blessings’ being particularly favourable, sending him “way up” in terms of prominence. ‘All Your Fault’ sees the Detroit rapper going back and forth in a battle with mentor Kanye West but takes a step back from the ferocious tone with a tear-jerking ‘One Man Can Change The World’ paying homage to his late grandmother. Unfortunately, a portion of the LP can go amidst, like the tasteless ‘Stay Down’ and underwhelming ‘Deep’ featuring Lil Wayne.

Big Sean evolves from corny, self-induced flop into the respectable, venomous emcee we’ve seen glimpses of but never on a consistent basis.
