Big Sean Returns to Syracuse

The rapper performed Friday, March 22nd in the Schine Underground as part of the Save The Horn Benefit Concert organized by the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and Habitat for Humanity.

Oh God! Rapper Big Sean returned to Syracuse University's Schine Underground Friday in front of a sold-out crowd. 

The brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Theta Xi Chapter along with Habitat for Humanity brought Big Sean to Syracuse as part of the Second Annual Save the Horn Benefit Concert to benefit the Horn of Africa.

Big Sean, a member of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music group, hit the stage around 8:40 p.m. and performed for over an hour.

Big Sean’s outline slowly started to appear through the thick smoke. He started his set by hyping the crowd and shouting, "Syracuse University!" He commented on the last time he was here, and said that it “feels like family” every time he returns to SU. The rapper performed in Schine Underground two years ago as part of the 2011 Winter Carnival. F One of Big Sean's latest hits, "Mula" from his Detroit Mixtap kicked off the night's musical fare. 

There wasn’t a moment throughout the evening when Big Sean did not have the crowd on their feet and yelling from all the sides of the auditorium. He shouted out each side of the audience and had them yell out. 

During the middle of his set, Big Sean took off his shirt, leaving his Detroit cap on.

Some of the most popular songs that Big Sean performed were "My Last," "Dance (A$$)," "Guap," "Marvin & Chardonnay," and "I Do It." He also performed some of the songs by other artists he is featured in like Jay-Z and West's "Clique," West's "I Don’t Like" and "Mercy," and Lil Wayne's "My Homies Still."

Big Sean left the stage after performing "Clique," and thanked Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and SU for having him again. The audience lingered in the Underground after the concert, still soaking in their experience.

“I loved it. I loved his energy and he had me dancing the whole time. I’m glad they brought him back,” said engineering and computer science senior Brianxis Jimenez.
