words // Pierce Simpson:
It’s safe to assume that Big Sean is declaring open season on any rapper looking to make headway within his respective field. For starters, Sean cemented 2014 with a variety of stellar freestyles and guest appearances that canvassed the libraries of car auxiliary DJs across the country. Building upon that momentum, the heavily anticipated “B-Boy” anthem with Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill and Harlem Bred A$AP Ferg received radio play and it did not disappoint. However, it was Sean that ultimately proved it’s his time. Now while those examples are rather enticing, every hip-hop enthusiast will let you know that albums are the thing that matters, and Sean silenced those critics as his Dark Sky Paradise drew rave reviews due to its stellar blend of radio hits and introspective cuts.
With Sean’s aura at an all-time high, we caught up with the Detroit emcee to get his take on some of his latest additions to his sneaker collection as we present our latest My 5. Headlined by his notable favorite the Yeezy Boost, Sean breaks down a variety of intriguing models as well as gives his thoughts on various topics. To see for yourself, flip through the pages below to see Big Sean’s My 5.

Big Sean: “They’re super comfortable. They’re probably the most comfortable shoe that I have right now. The Boost technology is really innovative and comfortable. I’m really rocking with it. I don’t really do anything other than perform in them and chill in them; but they fit both occasions really well. “
