Remember a few weeks back when Kanye West dubbed Big Sean the Beyonce of Hip-Hop?

Well Big Sean, whose debut album “Finally Famous” hits stores this Tuesday (Jun 28), has finally weighed in on Yeezy’s compliment and says he doesn’t plan on letting his mentor down.

“You know, I am gonna be that. I’m gonna take it there. I’m not gonna make ‘Ye eat his words or anything. I appreciate him being so outspoken and for believing in me so much. It gives me my own confidence.”

During his interview with Vibe magazine, Sean also spoke on his new single “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay” and how Kanye taught him to make his verses more simple.

“The [theme for that record] was actually Kanye’s idea, he came to me with it and was like ‘Yo, you definitely need this.’ He was in Paris and I was in LA so we just knocked it out over the phone. He was helping me with my verse, I was helping him with his verse.”

“One of the main things Kanye taught me is to think about how the listener will receive a line and how it can impact a group of people. Like on ‘Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay,’ I [initially] made my verse on there too complicated. I thought it was already simple, but [Ye told me] to make it even more simple and fun. That’s just how it needs to be sometimes.”

We still don’t know about him being the Beyonce of rap … but with Kanye on his side, who knows how far the kid will go? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
