Big Sean throws a homecoming parade in “Guap,” the video for the lead single off his forthcoming Hall of Fame album, due early 2013. In the feel-good clip, Big Sean shuts down the city of Detroit as he rolls down the famed Woodward Avenue passing by famous landmarks such as Michigan Theater, Stadium Liquor, and club Bleu. Sean recently spoke with MTV News on the significance of the Mike Carson and Mike Waxx-directed clip.
” ‘Guap’ [will be] one of those classic hip-hop videos [that] key rappers always have had in their careers, like Jay-Z with ‘Izzo (H.O.V.A.).’ It’s legendary because you come back to your city and shut it down to that degree. We shut down the biggest street in the city, kids came out — they were skipping school, which is kinda f—ed up, but we had an awesome time. I really saw how the city was showing love to me and the production in the video is all just sky high.”
