He also performed a live band reinterpretation of “Bounce Back.”
Big Sean took the SNL stage for the first time this weekend, where he performed two songs from his upcoming fourth studio album I Decided. Sean began with his single “Bounce Back,” which was given a slightly different arrangement to the Metro Boomin-produced recording, thanks to a live band. Later on, he premiered a song from the album called “Sunday Morning Jetpack,” which is said to feature an appearance from The-Dream on the record.
The personal track features a few memorable lines that reference Cam’ron and Kanye West, as well as Sean’s collaborator and rumored girlfriend Jhene Aiko.
This feels like the first time I heard Killa Cam Pink Tims in the Lamb Mixing it in with Dilla and Headphones to the ceiling fan
You the reason I ever touched my first Franklin Fast forward, I’m in Kanye crib with Kirk Franklin
And see you again, needless to say Back when I dated Alisha, Simone Or any other girl who looked like Lisa Bonet Who was jealous of me and Jhené
Ralo documents the scene of a car accident in which he miraculously escaped without injury.
Ralo is a very lucky man. The Atlanta rapper seems to have narrowly avoided death today, sharing a video of his totaled car and revealing to fans that he escaped his second car accident in a month “without a scratch.”
“That just tell you Allah is the greatest at all times,” Ralo said after giving his Instagram followers a close look at his wrecked vehicle, which was flipped upside down beside the freeway. “Walk away from this shit like a gangsta.”
It’s not clear if there were other passengers in the car at the time of the accident, but members of the rapper’s crew can be seen by his side in the video. There is no mention of anyone else being injured in the crash.
The spring and summer may bring “music and concerts” from Mr. West.
Kanye West has had an unpredictable last few months, but it sounds like he’s regrouping and focusing on art and family in 2017. A source has reported to E! News on Kanye’s plans for the new year.
“Kanye has a few surprise projects coming up that involves music and concerts in the spring and summer,” the source claims. “Plus he is working on his fashion line and some collaborations.”
Unfortunately, there’s no word on what these “projects” are. Kanye has hinted at a solo album called Turbo Grafx 16, a GOOD Music album called Cruel Winter, and a joint project with Drake which may or may not be called Calabasas Is The New Abu Dhabi — though knowing Ye, he probably has something entirely new up his sleeve.
The report also suggested that Kanye is spending as much time with his family as possible. “His kids are his number one priority for him and he wants to be a good dad and make his mother proud,” reads the quote. “He thinks about her every day.”
T.Y. suggests his father could be home within the next year or two.
NOLA rapper and former Hot Boy B.G. was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison back for gun possession and witness tampering in 2012, but his son, Jet Life rapper T.Y., suggests he’ll be home a lot sooner than expected.”His time was shortened. He’s coming home like within probably this year,” T.Y. said in an interview with DJ Smallz. “If not this year, next year for sure, but we shooting for this year, you feel me? Cause he been telling me all kinds of good shit.”
He went on to explain that B.G. has been through a few different facilities over the last little while, sometimes making it very difficult for the two to communicate. “When he was in Pennsylvania, that was like the worst jail,” he said. “Since he got out that motherfucker everything’s been a lot better. During that time it was rough on him bro, but he’s doin’ good now.”
While it’s been hard to stay in touch at times, T.Y. suggests he’s always made an effort to speak to his father even if he had to resort to writing. “We was just communicating through letters,” he recalled. “And that shit don’t be moving like how you would think cause that shit takes days to get to you. That shit be crazy, but we talked as much as we could.”
Here’s hoping B.G. is home sooner than later. T.Y. just released a collaborative project with Curren$y and Corner Boy P called Jetlanta. Listen to it here.
