We’ve seen Big Sean’s rise, since the beginning, when Kanye West first introduced him to the world years ago – since his immense growth, we caught up with the Sean Don on Sway in the Morning to find out what’s been going on.

Since, Sean just dropped his new album, I Decided, we decided to do a live lyrical breakdown of his music. Little did we know, our beloved Big Sean was going through thoughts on suicide while recording his album – but we were relieved to hear how his album helped him through it.

While in-studio he opened up about why he keeps his parents so close, meditating and new school curriculum he’s working on with his mother. He also participated in an unorthodox experience – since ‘Ye gave him his first shot after eagerly rapping for him at a radio station in Detroit, we welcomed rising rapper, Oswin Benjamin to do the same.

Watch below and let us know what you think? Does Oswin have bars? Keep up with @BigSean and cop his album, I Decided HERE.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
