Hot off the release of I Decided., Big Sean opeed up about the album during an interview with “The Breakfast Club.”
One of the tracks Sean Don spoke about was “Sunday Morning Jetpack,” in which he raps about girls who were always jealous of him and Jhené Aiko.
“People used to always be like, ‘What’s up with you and Jhené?’” he recalls, admitting that he took a liking to his collaborator long before they got together. “There’s always been feelings for her, just to keep it honest. She’s a great person.”
Aiko, of course, was married to producer Dot Da Genius before her relationship with Sean became public last year. Asked whether he’s afraid of a potential problem with Dot, the Detroit spitter responded confidently. “No,” he said. “No way. I’m not afraid of no confrontation.”
During the interview, Sean also addressed a line about suicidal thoughts on “Voices in My Head/Stick to the Plan.” “Voices in my head attacking what I’m thinking,” he raps. “Bullet to the head might be the way to free it.”
“I go through real shit all the time,” he explained, admitting that he’s struggled with suicidal thoughts in the past. “I’m not saying I was going to do it.
I’m saying I thought about it…God got me through that point. My family got me through that point. Unconditional love is more important than anything. That’s something money can’t buy.”
Elsewhere during the 34-minute conversation, Sean said he didn’t feel like Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse was better than his and that he feels he’s the best rapper out.
He also talked about working with Eminem, how he got a Roc-A-Fella chain from Jay Z, and what he’s up to with Metro Boomin. See highlights from the Q&A below
