Big Sean has always lacked something as an artist in my opinion. There is very little that stands out about himself as an image, figure, lyricist or musician to myself.
His newest album sounds like another addition to the repetitive discography that he has managed to build thus far. Sean is keen to constantly remind listeners of his improvements as a rapper, often putting down his past work, an interesting take to have on so much of his own music. This often comes across not as progressive, but as an insecurity within himself.
