Big Sean Breaks Down the Concept Behind His ‘I Decided’ Album
Big Sean is putting things in place to have a huge year. It all starts tonight when the Detroit rapper will make his debut on Saturday Night Live, and will continue when he drops his fourth solo album I Decided on Feb. 3.
Sean Don was recently a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he talked about his SNL come up, meeting Kanye West and broke down the concept behind his forthcoming project.
The album cover for the LP features two versions of the rapper in neighboring driveways. "This is me and this is an older version of me," the G.O.O.D Music rapper explained. "I realized my whole life changed when I decided I feel like life is about making the right decisions at any point. Or the wrong decisions," he added.
“The story of the album is: imagine you went through life and you made all the wrong decisions your whole life," he continued. "You get to the end of your life and your at a moment where it’s like, ‘God, I did everything wrong. I didn’t work it out with the love of my life. I messed it up with my parents. I’m not doing the job I was sent here to do on Earth.’"
He concluded, "So the album is basically a chance of like having that wisdom of an old man while you're young and going through life and figuring it out."
Yesterday (Jan. 20), SNL promo'd Sean's upcoming appearance with a hilarious commercial.
He will be embarking on the I Decided Tour in March. Peep the full slate of dates here.
