The Detroit rapper and St. Louis producer Metro Boomin released their joint album today to mix reactions from hip hop fans. The project comes with 10 singles and includes some guest features from 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Kash Doll, Swae Lee and more. Two particular singles on the album are drawing some concerts for its lyrics.
On the single “Who’s Stopping Me,” Big Sean made some references about Rosa Parks and that made some fans a bit uneasy. “I had a dream I rode with Rosa Parks in the back of the ‘Bach / And we was blowing a blunt and she was packing a strap / Like damn, it do feel good to be black in the back,” he raps.
“Big Sean really got on that Metro Boomin beat talking about smoking a blunt with Rosa Parks and I’m supposed to take this man seriously,” one fan wrote while another added, “The sad thing is that you got n**roes out here using #WhatAboutism trying to defending that mess saying people are overreacting. Rosa Parks sued #Outkast for a song she thought was disrespectful to her name. That Big Sean line is way more disrespectful that the Outkast song.”
One of the most talked about songs on the album is “So Good” featuring Kash Doll. “I’m so disappointed in you @BigSean thst album was terrible metro gave you the worst beats possible and the kash doll song might be the worst song of the year,” one fan wrote.
“kash doll got a whole verse praising big sean dick. jhene got his face tatted on her. i don’t know what this is about but “oh God”, another fan added on Twitter. Check out more reactions on Twitter below.

How is the world just now waking up to Big Sean's mediocrity? Dude has one OK project. ONE. And it's just OK.
