Hit-Boy, Big Sean bring the heat in new collab EP ‘What You Expect’

What A Life” it truly is for Big Sean and Hit-Boy.

As the dynamic producer-rapper duo caught fire from their LA Leakers appearance last week (Oct. 20), the two finally dropped their first collaborative EP, What You Expect.

The 6-track project features “Loyal to a Fault,” with Bryson Tiller and Lil Durk, and “Offense” with fellow Detroit natives in Babyface Ray and 42 Dugg. Other tracks include “Chaos,” “Into It,” “The One” as well as “What A Life.” The EP also brought forth two visuals in “What A Life” — where Big Sean can be seen covered head-to-toe in bees — and their latest “Loyal To A Fault.”

Earlier this week, both Big Sean and Hit-Boy hinted at their seemingly inevitable collab effort via social media. Following the EP’s single “What A Life” (Oct. 22), Hit-Boy responded to a Twitter comment on Tuesday, further teasing a project with the Don himself.

Sean seemed more than excited to release new music, saying he was “bout to drop a new song tonight, but then I thought… nah, instead I’m a drop 5 new songs tonight!”

Hit-Boy and Big Sean have always had great rapport, as the award-winning super producer worked with Sean on his Grammy-nominated magnum opus Detroit 2. D2 was the final record apart of Sean’s long-term, 14-year deal with GOOD Music. Now, he’s on to bigger things — doing what he does best all under his own imprint, FF, in partnership with Def Jam.

Hit-Boy has also had his fair share of success this year as well, locking in with Nas for Kings Disease and Kings Disease II — the former winning the legendary rapper a Grammy for Best Rap Album. The duo also boasts a slew of of other singles in “Salute,” “4 Thangs,” “It Ain’t My Fault among many others.

As Big Sean and Hit-Boy bolster their overarching impact in the game, “What You Expect’s” eclectic, hard-hitting sound lifts their intangible chemistry to new heights.
