Big Sean is back with a new single and some pretty big opinions about his superior rap abilities.

After his recent L.A. Leaker’s freestyle, during which he spit for nearly 9-minutes over a series of unique beats including JAY-Z’s “Dear Summer,” Drake’s “Love All,” Kanye West’s “Hurricane,” and Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke??”, Sean received floods of positive feedback.

But it was a text from a particular Hip Hop legend that had Sean take to Twitter, to reflect on just how talented of a rapper he is.

Nas just txt me saying ‘you murdered these freestyles thanks for pushing us all’ that’s crazy AF to me when I really thought about Nas txt’n me that, I’m at the crib right now in Detroit n I’m just feeling grateful I actually am doing what I said I would. S*** feel like a dream.”

The Detroit rapper continued on with a series of tweets, “I take pride in being versatile but I can also see how’s its helped and hurt me in my career,” he said. “Cause some people hear a song n think I’m just that, or a certain type of artist when I actually have many sides. I can Out rap anyone, but sometimes I just wanna jus vibe or have fun.”

Sean went on to note his versatility and express that he does get tired of being judged.

After making those points, Sean brought up how he misses the way his G.O.O.D. Music “brotherhood” used to operate. Saying, “I also really miss the brotherhood I use to have with GOOD music, I don’t know what happened. Guess those the GOOD ol days. It’s all love, but we use to really be clique’d up.”

Before he finished his thoughts off with what we like to call a mic drop conclusion. Declaring, “So I’m a just get back to having fun, cause trying to please everybody ain’t it! If you rock wit me, you rock wit me n if you don’t then… you just don’t have good taste.”

In other news, Big Sean has once again collaborated with Hit-Boy for his first single of 2021, “What a Life.” The track arrived alongside a Joe Weil directed music video which, we just have to shout out, features the rapper calmly covered in bees (no, for real) Check it out below.
