Big Sean promised new music, but did he deliver? Of course, the Vinylz produced single has a great beat and melody, but we expect nothing less from the producer, who produced Jay Z’s mega banger, Fuck With Me You Know I Got It featuring Rick Ross. The dark and twisted rift ironically repeats while the two rappers explain why they are so obviously blessed. Sean opens the song “I live a life I deserve/Fuck a vaca/ I feel better at work,” subliminally saying who needs a vacation, when your living your dream. Drake follows the Detroit native’s verse with one of his award-winning hooks, then a verse throwing shade at the Grammy’s. In his verse he states, “I could give two fucks ’bout where the Grammy’s go/ I just gave out Grammy’s on my Instagram,” reminding us how pointless and biased the Grammy’s can be at times.
Blessings was initially released as a 4 minute YouTube video late last night, but a few hours later Big Sean released an extended version on his sound-cloud featuring his GOOD Music founder, Kanye West. Maybe having the Chi Town native end the song was the biggest “blessing” of all. With a very boastful verse, detailing his current lifestyle, it feels as if Mr. West couldn’t have been given a better topic to go off about. Rapping lyrics, “Just did a couple laps in my home pool/ and my daughter right there getting home schooled/ I’m blessed.”
