Big Sean reveals his problems with Kanye West.
After the “Loyal to a Fault” rapper called him about his “Bitch Ass” comments, he spoke about his relationship with Ye during his three-hour interview with “Drink Champs”.
Sean, who ended his relationship with GOOD Music earlier this year, claims Ye still owes him around $ 6 million from what he calls an “unfair” recording deal.
“If you turn Bs up and you owe me the money, it’s probably not for him. This is life changing money for me, ”he told NORE and DJ EFN. “I put at least 30 million or more in this man’s pocket and he owes me money and he made billions.”
Sean decided to look into the label following a suggestion from his manager, Jay Brown, CEO of Roc Nation, who called it “the worst deal he has ever seen”.
In September 2020, Kanye announced that he was giving his artists their masters back, but that has yet to happen, according to Sean.
“That hasn’t happened yet, but that would be very useful to me,” said Sean, who describes himself as “No. 1 Earning Artist at GOOD Music. “” If I were Bs, if I were a man who kept my word and didn’t just say something to look good in this moment, I would pay my artists their masters. “
I give back to all good music artists the 50% share that I have in their masters

He revealed that his problems with Ye stemmed from “Blessings,” his 2015 collaboration with Drake. Kanye heard the song and said he wanted to be there, but his album Dark Sky Paradise was already finished and should be published the next day.
Sean was still trying to get him to do it, however, and even helped Ye write his verse. Drake didn’t think the song needed Kanye, but Sean still pushed for him. Because of the last minute timing, Kanye didn’t end up on the album, but he did appear in the Extended Version and in the video. During the set of the “Blessing” video, Sean said that Ye “walked” him because he did not include him on the album version.
During his “Drink Champs” interview, Kanye beat up Sean for not supporting him in running for president. Sean says he tried to reach Ye but didn’t have his contact details and that he never publicly endorsed a candidate, despite Ye claiming otherwise.
“What should I do, support someone I can’t get in touch with right now?” Asked Sean.
He decided to finally break his silence because it was bothering him. “It bothered me and I’m tired of not being able to speak my mind,” he said.
