Big Sean wasn’t short on confidence preceding the release of I Decided., his Platinum-certified fourth studio album. Like any artist proud of their forthcoming work, he spoke highly of the product and his status. Boldly, he delivered his elevator pitch as one of rap’s best and immediately my attention was his. Unfortunately, the album didn’t provide a compelling enough argument. I like Sean, he can be exciting and is fairly relatable, but his attempts at being clever often come across as corny, at times painfully so. He’s a very good MC who has spent years just outside the doors of the elite classroom.
With the announcement of Double Or Nothing, a new Sean album produced entirely by Metro Boomin, I saw a glimmer of hope within the realization that a special producer is what Sean has needed. This could be his Savage Mode, the collaborative mixtape between Boomin and 21 Savage that showcased 21’s true potential. Sean could benefit greatly from someone orchestrating his sound, setting the tone, and giving him a space to truly call his own.
This is also a good time for Metro to reassess. He has saturated the market in 2017, breaking records and picking up trophies in the process, but his sound is widely known and often replicated. Working with Sean is a chance for Metro to revamp his winning formula and further insert himself into the conversation as an all-time trailblazer.
