Big Sean is set to release his fourth solo album, I Decided next month and is already on an impressive media run. The Detroit native sat down with Zane Low on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and gave an exclusive interview just a couple of weeks before the album is released.
The G.O.O.D Music artist gets sentimental, as he tells listeners about his battle with depression while record Dark Sky Paradise and how it was a blueprint for his future albums. He also shares the difficulty he faced selling his Los Angeles home.
As the interview goes on, he talks about the politics behind many of his songs. He mentions his struggles with the record label and explains that there are “restrictions” that artist have to go through which keep a lot of their music off of their albums, “No More Interviews”, being one of several. “It f*uckin sucks”, he says.
