Big Sean is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated album I Decided. on Feb. 3. As a result, the Detroit MC recently spoke with Zane Lowe for an Apple Music interview, and Sean Don revealed that Eminem is featured on the new album.
Big Sean and Zane Lowe sit down for 45 minutes to discuss the album track by track. Fans will be happy to know that Em will appear on the album, and, according to Sean Don, the verse is incredible.
The G.O.O.D. Music artist also discusses a collaboration with The-Dream called “Sunday Morning Jetpack,” as well as a Jhené Aiko feature and a Metro Boomin-produced record. According to Sean, he has several other collabs with Metro (they didn’t make the album), which he plans to release soon. One of them is tentatively titled “Super Metro 3.”
Big Sean also talks about Kanye’s influence on I Decided. For example, on the track “I Owe,” Kanye made the suggestion to take one of Sean’s lyrics from a verse and use it as the hook.
The 28-year-old rapper also discusses Yeezy’s impact on him as an artist, in general. “Kanye’s been – I feel like he groomed me within these past 10 years to creatively do what I do,” Sean says. “When you know somebody for that long, I’ve taken so much. I’ve taken the hunger. The hunger that guy has is incredible. He gave me a sense of work ethic, a sense of perfection. Just making sure it’s the best it can be.”
You can watch highlights from the interview above, or listen to the whole conversation below via Apple Music. Additionally, you can pre-order I Decided. right now via iTunes for $9.99. The “Bounce Back” artist is also hitting the road in March for a tour.
