Big Sean Does it Big at Scala
Big Sean took to the Scala stage in London to crazy cheers and applause.
With the venue at capacity and the DJ already having hyped up the crowd with some of hip hops latest bangers, Sean had nothing more to do than keep that momentum going.
But that would have been to easy. So he took it up a few levels more.
He pulled no stops in his performance which was full of energy.
Much like his boss and label mate Kanye West, Big Sean has a lot of wit and plays on words.
While their also slightly softer spoken than the most rappers. They do approach their art differently.
From Sean’s video he appears quite a laid back act, though his live performance was anything but.
Full of explosive energy, Sean’s hour long set was much more than most artists as new in the charts as he are usually capable of pulling off.
It was testament to the loyalty of his fans that he could perform tracks from earlier mixtapes and still the whole crowd could sing song.
Every track pumped and with his debut album having so many single worthy tracks on it sounded like hit after hit.
Big Sean quickly put to rest my fear that he may not have a big enough catalogue for a full show.
When the song “My last” was performed and when it finally came on the crowd went ballistic. It was evident this was a fan favourite with nearly all the crowd knowing the track word for word.
Through out the show Sean took time to talk a bit about his life, his journey and show appreciation for the support and love he’d been shown, especially here in London and England.
Then we had a little crowd surfing and picture taking with the crowd, which again went down crazy.
Still young in his career, I imagine there will be many more opportunities to catch Big Sean on stage in the UK over the coming years.
I would definitely recommend it. I can only imagine what another album or two, a bigger budget and a stronger supporting act would be like.
