Big Sean celebrated his I Decided. album release with a fire-filled Hot 97 freestyle session.
Joining Funk Flex, Sean Don brought out a barrage of bars, referencing his new LP, the #DeleteUber campaign, and his claim to the throne.
“The album droppin’, they getting nervous,” he rapped over Freeway’s “What We Do” instrumental. “I canceled my Uber, it’s time to Lyft the burden / Know if I take a pay cut, then you gon’ need a surgeon / I don’t want the top spot, I deserve it.”
Not stopping with the Uber news, the Detroit spitter also had some choice words for President Donald Trump.
“I know ‘Ye proud of me, he took me out of debt,” rapped Sean. “I know Jay proud of me, he put this ’round my neck / And I might just kill ISIS with the same icepick / That I murder Donald Trump in the same night with.”
The rhyme about Jay Z was in reference to a classic Roc-A-Fella chain that’s now hanging around Sean’s neck. The G.O.O.D. Music MC, who is managed by Roc Nation, explained how he received the necklace during the session too.
“You see the chains,” he said after rhyming over Nas and Braveheart’s “Oochie Wally.” “Hov heard the album and threw me this and said I earned it.” Later, Don shared a more detailed photo of the piece on Instagram.
But this freestyle was only part of a celebratory day for Sean, who also performed “Halfway Off the Balcony” on “The Tonight Show.” Bringing the fitted hat back, he performed in front of blue, pink, and green neon lights, following his album cover’s color scheme.
During the performance, Sean shared a Darth Vader-like voice mid-song. “Just got my fortune read,” he rapped. “She said there’s more coming / Yeah, I got the force, but never forced nothing.”
His “Tonight Show” appearance also included some fun. In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, Sean joined actress Kristen Stewart for a game of “Facebreakers” against Jimmy Fallon and Black Thought. Smashing a couple of windows with footballs, Sean and Kristen came out victorious against Jimmy and The Roots’ MC. Watch Sean’s quarterback skills in action below.
