Schoolboy is starting to questioning his religion!
Some introspective lines here. Q can count off 5 sins that he committed off of the 10 Commandments and nothing has happened to him yet. Is all the sins just a big lie? Do you really go to hell/heaven when you die or is the bible/god just made up?
The production of “MILF” and the song itself is somewhat comical. A trippy synthesized and clap/kick heavy banger production leads to a “MILF” anthem with Sean rapping about the conflict between him and the kids of the woman he’s sleeping with. Nicki Minaj co-stars as the “MILF” and Juicy J backs Sean’s perspective leading to an all around humorous song.
If this isn’t original production I don’t know what is; although “You Don’t Know” is very synth and bass heavy, all of the elements are composed in a very unique fashion. The icing on the cake are the vocals by Ellie Goulding that adds a very addictive melody and phrase to the song. It´s EDM mixed soulful.
“Toyota Music” slows the album’s pace down. With an ambient synthesizer kicking the song off and then building up to snare rolls, reverberated percussion, pianos, sine wave synthesizers, bass, organs and breaks with only instrumentals such as clicking. A spacey-sounding song.
The beat was apparently taken from Theophilus London & Jesse Boykin’s III (Paris 96) — Afternoon, produced by Xaphoon. Controversial because Theophilus claimed Big Sean stole the beat.
Da Internz use standard 808’s, 808’s claps and snares to make a knockin‘ and bass heavy urban bounce record. This one is a club banger for sure. Containing the “U Can’t Touch This” sample of multiple elements including vocals in the background. http://youtu.be/otCpCn0l4Wo?t=1m57s
Hall Of Fame begins with Big Sean’s motivational anthem “Nothing Is Stopping You” that reveals some of the personal details behind Sean’s rise to fortune and fame. In terms of the production this is full of synthesizers, key chords, staccato strings and pitched down vocal samples that all manage to offer plenty of variety. This is clearly a song for all of the dream chasers, something that I can surely relate to and so can anyone else who is pursuing their passion.
It contains vocal samples of “Rocket’s Theme” as performed by Pharrell Williams:
Nothing is stopping you
Which starts of the song/is the intro and features throughout the track, backed by James Fauntleroy. It also features addition vocals by: Kanye West, Mo Beatz during the first interlude his mother, Trick Trick and Shorty dring the second interlude. While his mother ppears as the outro Myra Anderson. This is to put emphatize on dreams comming tre the theme of the song since these are some of the people he look up to the most.
