Big Sean Talks Drake Comparisons, ‘Watch the Throne’ Tour, & New Mixtape

During his first trip across the pond, Big Sean caught up with BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood before his sold-out show in London. He discussed Drake’s punchline flow, the possibility of joining the Watch the Throne tour, his new mixtape, and his first time having sex.

“Drake is my homie,” said the G.O.O.D. Music rapper. “He just borrowed an element of a flow that I made up in ’09 on [the mixtape] UKNOW BIG SEAN. … But he admitted. He was like, ‘Yo, I got that style from Big Sean.’ ‘Cause after he did it, the whole rap game did it.”

He also addressed the possibility of joining Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne tour this fall. “Maybe… It would only be right.”

Sean is planning to release a five-song mixtape in the coming weeks. “We’re just having fun with it. That’s what people are not doing these days, they’re not having fun with this shit.”

Plus, he spoke candidly about having sex for the first time at age 15 and getting caught by his mother. “You would’ve thought I made a porno or some shit,” he joked.
