Watch Big Sean Act in a Shakespeare Play When He Was in the Eighth Grade
A part of Big Sean's childhood is on the web for the whole world to see. Some old footage of a young Big Sean acting in a school rendition of William Shakespeare's play The Tempest is circulating on the Internet. The YouTube video was originally uploaded in 2013, but it is just starting to catch people's attention.
For Big Sean, the video might turn into a little unexpected promotion for his new album I Decided. The Detroit rapper's new LP is scheduled to drop on Friday (Feb. 3), so it does not hurt to have his name circulating without any effort. During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Big Sean revealed the concept behind his upcomign album.
“The story of the album is: imagine you went through life and you made all the wrong decisions your whole life,” he said. “You get to the end of your life and your at a moment where it’s like, ‘God, I did everything wrong. I didn’t work it out with the love of my life. I messed it up with my parents. I’m not doing the job I was sent here to do on Earth.’ So the album is basically a chance of like having that wisdom of an old man while you’re young and going through life and figuring it out."
