If there is anything you can credit Big Sean with, it’s being a trend setter. After being credited with the “stop-n-go” flow by Drake and making snap back hats come back in style, you can also credit Sean with “swerve.” The word which he says continuously throughout the G.O.O.D. Music single, “Mercy” has caught on almost replacing the word “swag” as a punctuation.

“I just feel like that’s what I’m doing. I’m swerving around. Especially in the D-Town with whips everywhere in the city. That’s something my crew was saying a long time ago,” Sean told Brad Wete of Complex.  “I guess it’s something I brought to the forefront to where everybody can hear it. That’s what it’s all about, making new stuff up, making this elevated.”

Big Sean also took aim at people who criticize his rhyme scheme and style. “A lot of people criticize me because I be making up my own words sometimes in raps to rhyme, but I don’t understand how you can criticize someone trying to bring originality to the game.”

“I think that’s really Beyotch-made to hate on somebody who rose up out their city and had a dream and made it happen and made their parents proud and supporting their family off of it too. You can hate, but I’m going to keep making this paper, though.”
