5. Big Sean “What You Doin?”
What you doin?……BULLSH*TTIN! Only early Big Sean fans will remember this catchy catch phrase. A video way ahead it’s time, Big Sean gets very animated with very bright colors and 3-D glasses.

4. Big Sean “Ashley” Feat. Miguel
Love hurts, and it’s a lesson that Big Sean has to learn in his video for “Ashley,” from his Hall of Fame LP. The rapper is kidnapped, beaten and forced to dig his own grave at the behest of a psycho couple. The track features Miguel on the hook, but the crooner doesn’t appear in the video. In fact, there are no performance scenes at all, just the Detroit rapper in full character.
