Exclusive: Big Sean on “Control”: I Orchestrated The Whole Record



It’s rare at your own listening party that the talk is about another artist. But tonight at the Moët Rose Lounge for Big Sean’s “Hall of Fame” listening party all the talk was about Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Sean’s lastest track “Control”.

Big Sean told HipHollywood exclusively that he doesn’t see the big deal, since he was the mastermind behind the collaboration.

“I orchestrated the whole record,” said Sean. “I think me, Jay Electronica, Kendrick, all had great verses on there. Fun, rap we pushing the culture forward.”

“I’ve been sitting on that song for a while”, added Sean. “When I first heard it, it was funny to me. I was like he really gone name drop, but then I was like its Hip Hop, it’s a sport.”

Well one thing is for sure, the buzz is sure to drum up lots of publicity for Sean’s new album Hall of Fame set to drop August 27th.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
