As Big Sean's forthcoming album Dark Sky Paradise had the cocky, brash and somewhat petty "IDFWU" as its lead single, it was jarring in the best way possible to hear him drop "One Man Can Change The World," which is pretty much the polar opposite. Now veteran producer Statik Selektah has offered up a remix of the Kanye West and John Legend-featuring cut.
Adding his usual boom-bap-style drums, Statik also incorporates some additional, more subtle melodic elements that add an even greater lushness to the heartfelt ballad. It's really looking like DSP will be Sean's best work yet.
My grandma told me if you write your name in stone you'll never get the white out
I grinded out that black hole then performed up at the white house
Standin' next to Jim Carrey, we traded stories then laughed
I said you not the only one I know got rich wearin' masks
