Big Sean opens up about heart disease, holistic medicine and new music

Big Sean has tapped Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill and more for his upcoming album.

The 31-year-old rapper has revealed details of his fifth LP – his first solo record since 2017’s ‘I Decided’ – which will see the star get real about being diagnosed with heart disease as a teenager and family.

Malone and Rocky feature on the track ‘Wolves’, which Sean says is about his family being close like a pack of wolves.

He explained: “[That song is about] my family growing up. “Everybody’s in there, my grandma, my mom, my brother — it’s like they were a pack of wolves and they were the sweetest and strongest. It’s one of my favorites on the album.”

Rocky also features on another song with Atlanta rapper MadeinTYO.

He said: “Rocky had a verse on [‘Wolves’ originally], but he ended up doing the verse to another song that he and I felt fit a little better with the album. That’s another song I got with MadeinTYO. But I just kept it dialed-in throughout.”

The track ‘Lucky Me’ sees the ‘Bounce Back’ star open up about his battle with heart disease and how his mother’s holistic medicine helped mend him.

Recalling a scary moment when he was rushed to the emergency room after passing out, Sean told Entertainment Weekly: “I couldn’t even walk from one side of the room to the other without getting super-tired.

I passed out once in the shower and got rushed to the emergency room.”

On the song, he raps: “Lucky me, I was diagnosed with a heart disease at 19.

“Doctors said they had to cut it open put a pacemaker on it to put it back on beat / ‘Til my mother took me to holistic doctors and they prescribed me magnesium for two weeks / Went back to the regular doctors and they said, ‘Huh? damn, looks like we don’t need to proceed.’”

There is also a brief cameo from Mill and Diddy on another song.

He said: “There’s a song where Meek Mill just says two lines, and Puff had a couple of lines.”
