Big Sean on Nas/Shyne’s feelings about Def Jam

Big Sean appeared on Lip Service and was asked about what has been said about Def Jam and L.A. Reid in the last week or so:

Well, my experiences with L.A. Reid, I’ve had tons of meetings with him recently, and even in my meetings he said ‘Man I’m a guy that’s into hits man, pop,’ you know he says that. He’s straight up, I’m into hits I’m into that money. I’m into these fucking hit songs so no, I don’t think L.A. Reid understands hip-hop in the same way that Nas understands it or Shyne or whoever or Kanye. He understands that muthafuckin money, he understands what a hit is, so you gotta respect him on that. He’s responsible for a lot of big acts. But honestly Def Jam does make a lot of mistakes and I’m signed to Def Jam and I appreciate everything they’ve done for me. I’m happy to be on Def Jam.

    L.A. Reid is like “if we ain’t talking money nigga, shit….. sign with an independent nigga”…

    I ain’t mad at all….

    But thing is Nas’ “Lost Tapes II” will make cake…

    Hence why L.A. Reid signed Bieber though, he just sees dollar signs when he sees that lil dude…

    But those cats were still in the studio with Ye on Late Registration, crafting bars & hooks.

    Lonnie went at Cube and Westside connection back in the day. Maybe in 2010 it would be interesting if he would go at Cam. Oh and Beans and the other Roc members had talent. Cons, GLC and a lot of them other dudes albums are super lame. Ye was still giving them beats and putting them on his early albums but still them dudes are just good at being a part of the entourage.

    Well, I guess them GOOD niggas listen better than those SP niggas. Beans said Camel told them not to go to war with Kiss, Nas, or P. Beans and them said “fuck it,” and rode out anyway, if only to keep them from falling in the same fate as Diamonds in Da Ruff, Rell, and Da Rahnjaz.
