Big Sean’s new album, I Decided, is a breath of fresh air. The Feb. 3 album isn’t just about stereotypical rap this time around, but also conveys a strong story as well, which has to do with his older self giving the current-day Big Sean advice: to cherish time, not money, and how family is the most important. It shows the struggles Big Sean endured through the years and says to never give up on your dreams, no matter the challenges you must endure to achieve those dreams.

The beat of the album was also very strong compared to Sean’s past albums, like Dark Sky Paradise. This new album continues his streak of lyrics that convey better meanings, and the flow is always improving. The overall feeling and tone of the album is almost inspiring because it shows all the rough times he’s endured and how he kept his head up and conquered his demons. Another thing Big Sean did well was to have a good mix of meaningful songs and  fun songs to listen to around friends.

Overall, this is Big Sean’s strongest work by far and it deserves major recognition across the hip-hop community. The meaningful story told throughout the lyrics, strong beat and amazing flow he is able to carry throughout all of the songs makes this an album to be remembered and replayed throughout the following years.
