Detroit native and my all time favorite rapper Big Sean decided to bless Chicago on March 31st of this year. It is the day my love and respect for him as an artist grew. His latest album titled “I Decided” was released February 3rd and his performance provided a different side of Sean that people really haven’t heard before.
There are signs of financial, personal and spiritual growth present through out the album and Sean does not disappoint when it comes to the visuals for the album. He also does not disappoint in a live show. The line was long as eager fans awaited the show and then once we got inside the wait was longer. With MadeInTyo as his opening act, and performing his list of hot singles and getting the crowd amped up for the main attraction was not a problem. My favorite song Big Sean performed was of course “SkateBoard P” and you can enjoy this awesome video as much as I have.
Sean’s album demonstrates much maturity and progression. I have been to a Big Sean concert when he was just starting and his live performance has improved a lot. I find his performance simply amazing. The set was basically his album cover brought to life and through out the show we’re aware of his conscience which is what we hear on the album during transitions. We actually got to see him on a big screen and I enjoyed the lighting during his show because of the purples and blues, which happen to be my favorite colors.
So I had my favorite rapper, favorite colors and favorite drink all in one night! Check out footage and the fly hat I got as a great memory of this concert.
