Big Sean Reveals His Favorite Verse He's Ever Written: Interview

"Every verse I do -- it's not for everybody, but for me, I love it," rapper tells "Billboard" before his Hot 100 Festival set.

Literally minutes before hitting the stage as Saturday's (Aug. 19) headliner at Billboard's Hot 100 Fest, Big Sean gave us unprecedented access in his dressing room to talk about his set, his No. 1 album, I Decided, and more.

Recently, Billboard ranked the rapper's best featured verses, something Big Sean definitely had his own opinion on.

"I feel like they left out 'Clique,'" he says. But his personal favorite? "That 'Detroit vs. Everybody' verse. That was a fire one," he reveals. "I remember that I didn't have any time hardly to do that and I somehow knocked it out in an hour."

The rapper does admit though, he loves all of his verses, "Every verse I do -- it's not for everybody, but for me, I love it," Big Sean says.

He also explains that it's all about progression and recognizing it within yourself. "Every time I do a verse, I feel like it's better than the last one."
