So impressed that Big Sean signed you to a publishing deal. How did that happen?
He had a show in Nashville, I think last November. So when I was done with school, Sean told me to come through to the show and right after it we went to a studio. On our way to the studio, he was like “I wanna sign you bro.” I was like “Fosho,” so, I continued to work and send him tracks and work on getting placements with other artists. In the meantime, he went to London to work on the G.O.O.D. album with the label [and while there] told me to send him some tracks while he was out there to play for Kanye.
He played one that Kanye liked, so Sean and an A&R from G.O.O.D. [Music] hit me up and asked to send the track that ’Ye liked, as soon as I could. Right after I sent it, I got a phone call from Mike Brinkley (Sean’s management) and he asked me was I in any music situations with anybody. I said no so he then said, “We have the contract ready for you to sign your co-publishing deal with Sean. You should be getting it next week.” I was hype. I received the contract, my attorney looked it over, I signed and everything has been even more on deck since then.
Recently a joint dropped from Sean featuring Wale titled “Life Should Go On,” word is that you produced it.
That was a leak man. I was kind of mad. I was chillin’, watching TV and my phone vibrated and I saw somebody tweet, “Man, this is cold as shit. New music from Big Sean and Wale, ‘Life Should Go On’ produced by Key Wane.” I was like, ‘What the fuck?’ So, I had looked on Sean’s page, see if he put it out [and] he didn’t so I was like, ‘How is somebody going to tweet this before him?’ From there I figured, ‘It’s a leak.’ I was pissed, but everything getting worked out though. Everything is gonna be straight.
I know you and Sean have work on the way as well. What can you tell us about his upcoming sophomore album?
I can’t really [speak much on it] because there’s a lot of stuff they’ve been recording when I haven’t been around but, I can tell you that he has a good body of work. It’s a great growth from Finally Famous. Looking past the friendship that me and Sean have and just listening to it as a listener—he just played me a bunch of shit— it’s that good. I ain’t even trying to brag on it, but that shit is that good.
