Big Sean's upcoming second studio Hall of Fame got a major push this week after the Detroit rapper released the album outtake "Control" with a Kendrick Lamer verse that set the hip-hop world on edge. In additional lead up to the LP's Aug. 27 release, Sean has been hitting the late night TV circuit and throwing listening parties here and there, including a block party at Los Angeles' famed Fairfax and Melrose district earlier this week. As music played inside, hordes of people gathered and lined up to get it. Check out photos from the scene in the gallery that follows.
