Big Sean just needed five albums to land on LA Leakers, the renowned show on LA’s Power 106 platform where rappers may lay down their hottest bars. The Detroit rapper joined the stage for the 122nd installment of the show, and he did not disappoint, freestyling for nearly nine minutes in the episode that aired on Wednesday. Sean performed over Kanye West’s “Hurricane,” on which he had an original verse, Drake and Jay-“Love Z’s All,” Jay-Z and Memphis Bleek’s “Dear Summer,” and Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke?” during his performance.
During his appearance, Sean touched on a number of topics. He spoke about Kanye West signing his advance check to him before officially bringing him onto the GOOD Music roster, being with Kobe Bryant on New Year’s Day in 2020 just weeks before the Lakers legend passed away, and NBA players shooting their shot in his girlfriend’s DMs. He also addressed artists he wrote hit songs for that failed to pay him for his work. “A lot of songs I wrote for icons that I still ain’t even get publishing on / And some of them up more than me,” he raps. “I don’t know how they sleep at night knowing they wrong.”
Sean celebrated his freestyle in a pair of posts on Twitter, writing, “Y’all really playing wit me man! Okay!” and “Donda signed my advance check on God, that’s how long we been at this…”
