It's pretty common for rappers who float somewhere in between the skill sets of Lil B to Kendrick Lamar to have loud stans who claim their favorite artist can hang with the best of em'. Here we are to give our 2¢ on the issue.
Big Sean is a Detroit native who burst on the scene as another one of Kanye's many prodigies. Coming up as an early 2010s rapper, Sean has amassed a rather strong following that has only snowballed over time, leading his 4th and most recent studio album , "I Decided," to debut at number one on the Billboard charts.
Big Sean has talent no doubt. BUT...the biggest hurdle he has yet to clear from turning him to an elite rap artist is his tendency for corny raps. While at times he blows me away with his skill, other instances call for a hard cringe, voiding the entirety of the song. The problem is that Sean's style skews toward being a traditional rapper who's got bars, similar to Kendrick or J. Cole. And with that comes an implication that he won't be corny during that. He's not going to win being the most creative sonically (like Kanye or Travis) and he's subpar on the bars at times.
The other reason Sean won't be considered elite is because of his generic sound at times. Large portions of his music can be confused for the common SoundCloud rapper, which is such a shame because other times he exhibits incredible flows and lyrics that allow him to at least peer into the elite conversation.
