West went on to talk about Sean and his amazing journey. “I believe Sean’s story is one of the most amazing ever, because he literally got signed off a freestyle,” said Yeezy.

“To now, and I say it all the time, having the potential to be one of the biggest artists in the world. I feel like he can be like what Beyonce is to R&B, that he can be that to rap music. As far as G.O.O.D. Music go, the swag is just all the way up, this is what we do to the fullest!”
