Big Sean stopped by Los Angeles radio station Power 106 and displayed his lyrical prowess in a new L.A. Leakers freestyle.
The Def Jam artist rapped for almost nine minutes, delivering a flurry of bars over multiple beats. Big Sean began by spitting on Jay-Z’s “Dear Summer” and quickly established the tone a decade after he last freestyled for the L.A. Leakers.
“I stopped hoping for the best now I’m demanding it work/I handle my dirt if good karma don’t land on it first/Relentless how I give it all but never give in/Just like NBA players in my girl’s DMs/Steady shooting shots that’ll never go in/F### it, I’m focused on making money we nevеr gon’ spend/My whole life is likе my blessings queued right on schedule/I still hate seafood but love the oyster perpetual,” he rapped.
The L.A. Leakers switched things up about two minutes in, having Big Sean tackle Drake’s “Love All” instrumental. A few minutes later, Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk flipped the script again with Kanye West’s “Hurricane” beat.
“Everything I know now could’ve been added to then/Nothing better than having it all, except having it all losing it all then getting it back again/No writing on the wall but I still know how to read a room/I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/My focus back active, now I’m getting consumed/Yeah I’m awake with the moon/Mother Nature so when I die and I’m buried, what that mean? I’m going back in the womb,” Sean Don rapped over the Yeezy cut.
The freestyle capped off with Big Sean rhyming over Florida-bred rapper Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke?” instrumental. The change in pace didn’t phase the Detroit rhymer as he adjusted his flow and continued unleashing bars.
