Big Sean is NOT This Sean

bigseanisnotseanconneryWith the Spring Kick-Off concert fast approaching, I’m sure you’ve all been researching the two artists coming to campus, White Panda and Big Sean. Or at least you keep meaning to. If you’re musically challenged, you might not know who Big Sean is. The Fourth Edition is here to help you get your act together so that you don’t start screaming for Sean Connery and an SNL skit this Friday in McDonough. These Seans are NOT coming to campus:

1. Sean Kingston

A lot of his songs might start with, “Ayo Sean. You Mr. Kingston,” (da ti da ti da ti do do feelin’ like I’m letting go…) but he is not THE Big Sean. His songs might be pretty catchy and remind you of your middle school dance days but, sadly, he will not be coming to Georgetown.

2. Sean John aka Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy aka P Diddy

While he is another classic rapper, Sean John is not BIG Sean. Though Diddy and his Dirty Money have a multitude of names, Big Sean is not one of them.

3. Shaun White

Wrong! Wrong race, wrong hair color and wrong reason for being famous. If you thought that Big Sean was Shaun White you should probably just not come this weekend. But maybe you should venture out from the rock you’ve been living under. Shaun White might be a bad ass snowboarder with crazy style, but alas, he would probably not do well as our concert’s main act.

4. Sean Penn

Once again, if you were thinking that Big Sean was Sean Penn, you’re pretty off base. A famous actor and producer, Sean Penn is brilliant, but he should probably stick to the screen.

5. Shawn Johnson

P&G "Thank you, Mom" Gift Announcement

OK so now we’ve hit the wrong gender and her name is even spelled differently. Trust me, I would pay decent money to see this girl perform some gymnastics, but I’m less enthused by the thought of her singing career. So good guess — not really — but Big Sean is not Shawn Johnson — in fact, she’s only 4’ 9” so maybe we’ll just dub her Little Shawn.

6. Sean Bean

While a fantastic actor — even though he dies in every role — Ned Stark, err Sean Bean, is not Big Sean. It would be nice to see Sean Bean at Spring Kick-Off so he could tell us winter is ENDING, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

7. Sean Parker

You might only know him as the character Justin Timberlake plays in The Social Network, but unfortunately Sean Parker himself cannot sing “Sexy Back” as well as our boy J.T. I’m also going to say, he’s not nearly as fun to look at, but let’s be honest, who is?

8. Sean Lowe

sean lowe

He might be a cutie, and he actually married the girl he proposed to on the Bachelor —that’s refreshing — he’s not the guy you want for your concert. He’s a nice guy, unlike the most recent Bachelor Juan Pablo (don’t even get me started) but still, he’s not Big Sean.

If you still have no clue who Big Sean is, then you’re probably the type of person who sticks to the likes of Justin Bieber. That’s unfortunate. But Big Sean collaborated with Justin Bieber. Duh. So you still have no excuse.

Now that you know who Big Sean is NOT, you can go forth and research his songs so you can memorize his lyrics and make a fool of yourself attempting to rap along at the concert. If you need some help, look here for song recommendations! Don’t worry, the blog has your back.

Educate yourselves!

Friday Fixat10ns: Spring Concert Edition

[8tracks width=”300″ height=”250″ playops=”” url=”https://8tracks.com/mixes/3580015″]

By now, some of you may know that the headliners for the Spring Kick-Off Concert are official. In less than a month, McDonough Gymnasium will be the venue for Big Sean and the White Panda.

For those of you who don’t know, Big Sean is a hip-hop artist/rapper from Detroit, signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music record label. The White Panda are two childhood friends who make crazy good mashups for a living. With the two acts performing, this concert will definitely be a good time. Here at 4E, we’ve compiled a quick playlist of a few of both artists’ songs. Listen to it when you’re stuck in Lau, at Yates or doing something else that’s not as fun as a concert.

1. Control (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica) – Big Sean Yes, this is the song where Kendrick drops truth bombs everywhere. But Big Sean kills his verse too, making it a great track overall.

2. Animals (ft. Kendrick Lamar) – The White Panda Mashing up Kendrick, Tiesto and others, this song definitely won’t kill your vibe.

3. Clique (ft. Big Sean, Jay-Z) – Kanye West Technically not Big Sean’s song, but a great track nevertheless. Besides his verse, Big Sean gets a couple of his signature “Oh GAWD’s” in there.

4. Dance (A$$) Remix (ft. Nicki Minaj) – Big Sean A classic.

5. Midnight Life – The White Panda A mashup of M83’s “Midnight City” and Kanye’s “Good Life,” this song is a prime example of when a mashup sounds ludicrous but actually works.

6. Beware (ft. Jheno Aiko, Lil Wayne)  – Big Sean A single from last year’s Hall of Fame, this “cautionary love song” comes with a great music video.

7. Stereo Hands – The White Panda Mixing “Stereo Love”, Waka Flaka and Wale sounds ridiculous until you hear this song.

8. What You Know About Little Secrets – The White Panda So T.I. and Passion Pit sound pretty good together!

9. Ashley (ft. Miguel) – Big Sean Besides having a great hook (courtesy of Miguel – when is he coming to Georgetown?), this song shows Big Sean’s emotional side without sacrificing his great rapping.

10. Deep In the Levels – The White Panda Adele + Avicii = concert bliss. The moral of the story is that The White Panda can do no wrong, and they, along with Big Sean, are going to kill it at the Spring Concert.
