Big Sean Defends Kanye West — He Has ‘One Of The Biggest Hearts In The World’

Big Sean and Kanye

Kanye West might be confusing a lot of people these days, but one person definitely has the rapper’s back.

Big Sean hit up the Grammys on Monday where he didn’t have enough good things to say about Kim Kardashian West‘s husband.

In fact, it was Yeezy who gave the Grammy nominee his first shot back in 2005:

“He’s great ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ he’s everything you imagine. Like I always tell everybody, Kanye discovered me. He saw the potential in a kid who rapped for him at the radio station.”

Now, Sean’s song One Man Can Change The World featuring West and John Legend was nominated (but lost to Kendrick Lamar) for best rap/song collaboration:

“Without ‘Ye, I probably wouldn’t even be here. At least he for sure gave me that path, gave me that opportunity. Anybody who can see the potential, change a kid’s life like that, gotta have one of the biggest hearts in the world.”

This particular song has a lot of meaning for the 27-year-old:

“I got the chance to mention my grandma in it, who is one of the first female black captions in World War II and one of the first female cops in Detroit where I’m from. It’s definitely a special song. That’s why it meant so much to get that nomination, and it means so much to have ‘Ye on there with me and John Legend. My grandma’s voice is at the end of the song, so you can just imagine what that feels like. So hopefully I get that award and we boss up and put on for the city and just have a good time.”

Although he didn’t take home the trophy, the Detroit native still feels like a winner:

“I told myself, ‘Win or lose, we’re winning.’ My album just went platinum. I got my mom out here with me. In life, it can go any way for you. The fact that it went up for me, the fact that I’m able to get to do, I’m winning regardless.”

What a class act!
