You've got to feel for Big Sean. Back in 2013 he linked up with Jay Electronica and Kendrick Lamar for "Control," a track more often attributed to the latter's thunder stealing and career shattering verse. Jokes are abound about his "internship" with G.O.O.D Music. It's all a little unfair—I mean, Big Sean's worked relentlessly and he's not objectively terrible—but you have to admit he has a habit of getting on tracks with some of rap's biggest names, leaving himself open to being overshadowed. Cut to his latest song: "Blessings," which features Drake and Kanye West.
"Blessings" isn't as fire as the feature list would suggest, more standard issue for each artist: Drake singing the hook, Kanye rapping about his "condom size being compromised," and Big Sean meandering between the two. Still, it's a piece of new music from all three, all of whom are putting out records this year. So think of it as a bowl of peanuts to munch on while waiting for the starter and main course to arrive.
