    I Decided ,is Sean's first solo album in nearly two years time and hits shelves and digital outlets .the album features Eminem, Migos, Jeremih and more. 

    The 28-year-old rapper previewed what's to come during a new Apple Music interview with Zane Lowe. The most exciting tidbit that he dropped in the chat? A new Eminem collaboration is on its way.


    “Before anything,” Sean said, “I was like, ‘You’re one of the only people I want on this album.’ I was telling him the story of the album, what it meant to me, and he honestly told me, ‘I want to be a part of it, but I don’t know if I’m gonna have time.’ That was what I got back when I was talking to him. I was like, ‘Damn. I don’t know if he’s gonna come through with it.’ Then, randomly, out of nowhere, I got the Eminem verse.


     Big Sean plans to celebrate the debut of his album, "I Decided", with four pop-up shops in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and, of course, his home- Detroit.


    Eminem appear on the 14-track album to help Sean rep Detroit on "No Favors",this collaboration that Sean was particularly excited about.
