2015’s Dark Sky Paradise was a moment of truth for Big Sean. Intensely personal, it would be the G.O.O.D Music emcee’s most critically acclaimed project to date.
Hoping to further leave an imprint as one of today’s preeminent rappers, Sean returns with his fourth album, I Decided. Taking a different approach, Sean revealed his most personal release to date would be a concept project — about a man being reborn again – inspired by soul and R&B music.
“As an artist you can imagine, you make sacrifices as an artist like putting your privacy on the line,” he said. “If you’re a true artist you sacrifice your privacy, you sacrifice the stories of your life you’ve been through, you sacrifice all these different emotions and you put em out there but it’s for people to relate to it’s for people to help them get through their times.”
