After an awesome set by Deep Sea Diver, I followed the steady stream of teenagers into Key Arena to see if Detroit rapper Big Sean was any good live. Surprisingly, he was. The guy's got swagger. Even from the farthest corner of the arena I could see him dance around the stage, taking pictures with the crowd and throwing out beach balls as he yelled, "I want y'all to play with my balls." The crowd was on their feet bumping and grinding through the whole set, even up in the cheap seats. As I took notes on my phone the guy next to me leaned over and said, "You gotta get more hyped for this." Slightly embarrassed by the call-out, I got up and danced as Big Sean blazed through the smash hit "A$$ A$$ A$$."
