Big Sean Teams with Kanye West in ‘IDFWU’ Video

Big Sean

Big Sean touched down at College of the Canyons football field in Santa Clarita, Calif. on Sunday to shoot a video for his Kanye West and DJ Mustard-produced single “I Don’t Fuck With You.” MTV News was on set as the Detroit rapper suited up in his uniform and took the field as the team quarterback.

His collaborator E-40 served as football commentator and DJ Mustard played Sean’s teammate. Even his G.O.O.D. Music mentor Kanye West worked the sidelines as coach.

“Obviously football plays a part of it. I’m the star quarterback, one team against another team,” said Sean.

The song, rumored to be inspired by his ex Naya Rivera, has became an anthem. “Everybody got people they don’t mess with. Soon as it came out, tons of people were relating to it,” said Sean.

Go behind the scenes of the football-themed clip below.

Chris Brown, Big Sean Spit ‘Open Bar’ Freestyles on Power 106

Chris Brown

During his visit to Power 106′s #LIFTOFF show, Chris Brown put his freestyle skills to the test for the “Open Bar” series using four bars and four topics. Over Migos’ “Fight Night,” Breezy rapped about thots, drunk texting, girls looking through your phone, and L.A. women.

Big Sean also stopped by the show and laid down some hot bars over Drake’s “0 to 100.” His topics included Floyd Mayweather, L.A. girls, Nicki Minaj’s ass (“You know I was the first one to have her bend it over in a video”), and crazy chicks, but he stopped short on the last topic.

“I’m in enough headlines right now. I might have to stop while I’m ahead,” laughed Naya Rivera’s ex.

Sean has collaborated with Chris on a new song for his upcoming album, due later this year or in early 2015. They previously scored a hit with 2011′s “My Last.”

Check both their freestyle flows below.

Def Jam celebrated 30 years of hip-hop with a star-studded concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Thursday night. The label’s past and present icons—from EPMD to Big Sean—united under one roof to perform some of their greatest hits.

Accompanied by Swizz Beatz, DMX tore up the stage with “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem,” “Where the Hood At,” and “Party (Up in Here).”

Ja Rule, who will star in MTV’s docu-series “Follow the Rules,” took it back with his Murder Inc. classics and brought out Irv Gotti and his former labelmate Ashanti for “Mesmerize” and “Always On Time.” The R&B princess stuck around to sing “Happy” and her debut single “Foolish.”

“This next record put me in the Guinness Book of World Records,” said Ashanti before performing the Biggie-sampled song, which spent 10 weeks at No. 1 in 2002.

Draped in a gold fur-lined jacket, a slimmer Rick Ross bumrushed the stage with French Montana and some twerking fans for “Pop That” and brought out Stalley for “One More Shot.”

Foxy Brown repped for her hometown with her classics “B.K. Anthem,” “Ain’t No Ni**a,” and “Get Me Home.”

Surprise guest Big Sean had the crowd singing along to his new anthem “I Don’t F**k With You,” Fabolous did his remix to “Hot Ni**a,” and 2 Chainz delivered a swagged-out set.

Big Sean Freestyles on Cosmic Kev

Big Sean

During his trip to Philly, Big Sean stopped by DJ Cosmic Kev’s “Come Up Show” on Power 99 to spit a freestyle. Over OG Maco’s “U Guessed It,” Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares,” and Quilly’s “Real One,” Ariana Grande’s boyfriend shouted out Meek and his city. He got up out of his seat and continued rapping over DeJ Loaf’s “Try Me,” but didn’t want to give too much away (sounds like he may be on the official remix).

Sean plans to release his third album later this year or in early 2015. He has confirmed collaborations with Chris Brown and Kanye West.

Watch Sean Don body the beats.

Video: Big Sean – ‘Paradise’

Big Sean

Big Sean dropped four new songs last month and now he gives us the dark and eery visuals for the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced “Paradise.” The G.O.O.D. Music rapper rides around in his red Lamborghini with his girl, played by Love Dollhouse’s Ryan Destiny. They check into a motel (run by Mike WiLL), but something is not quite right and Ryan eventually storms out.

Sean’s upcoming album is due at the end of 2014/early 2015 and will feature collaborations with Chris Brown and Kanye West.

“I’m just in straight beast mode. I’m not angry, but I’m passionate,” he told 106 KMEL. “I’m just going in to the best of my ability on every single beat—not lagging, not cutting anything short, giving it 110 percent, going for blood.”
