Rapper Big Sean Reveals Wanting To Take His Own Life, Rapper Admits He Had To Seek Therapy Because His Energy Wasn’t Connecting

Detroit rapper Big Sean hasn’t been shy about his personal struggles with his mental health in the past.  Over the weekend, the “IDFWU” rapper released his fifth studio album “Detroit 2” (a sequel to his 2012 mixtape “Detroit”), and in the midst of celebrating the imminent success of the album (currently on track for the #1 slot on the Billboard Top 200 Albums charts), Sean has taken to his Twitter to get some things off his chest.

Back in 2018, Big Sean announced he would be scrapping the rest of his tour in support of his “I Decided” and “Double or Nothing” albums, the latter a collaborative album with producer Metro Boomin.  He explained he was “in a deep creative space and decided I need to stay focused in the studio.”  Sean, who also went through a break-up with then (and now, back on-again) girlfriend Jhene Aiko, spoke with Billboard, where he also revealed that he “had some things to work out in his head.”

“I never really took the time out to nurture myself, to take care of myself,” says the Detroit native.  “It took me a lot of depression having a lot of anxiety to realize something was off. I’ve been getting myself together, getting my mind right. So I have been taking better care of myself and…not only am I bringing my best self to the music but I’m bringing my best self to the table, to my city, to my fans, to the people who are about me.”

Sean got even more candid about his mental health on his 31st birthday last year, where after removing all of his social media posts, he made a return to Instagram with video clips expressing he went through difficult times around his 30th birthday and had to seek therapy.  “Around this time last year, around my birthday, it was good for me,” he said, “but it was wild for me too because I felt like something wasn’t all the way connecting with my energy. I wasn’t feeling like myself and I couldn’t figure out why.”

my thoughts (3/3) 🗣 UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

“I stepped back from everything I was doing, he continued, “from everything I had going on because somewhere in the middle of it, I just felt lost.”  It was then he revealed he sought a therapist out in attempts to help him out.  He began to feel clarity and even begun to reevaluate certain relationships within his life, including with his mother.  It was through this process his was able to find himself and create what he described as the “best music in his life”.  “I definitely rediscovered myself and found a whole new energy and me being a source of it, not somebody else,” he said. “Then I started getting back to making the music and it started being fun again.”

With the release of Detroit 2, Big Sean seems to be in a much clearer and healthier headspace, and he’s taken to his Twitter to once again, release a series of candid tweets, letting fans know he had (amongst other things) developed thoughts of suicide in the past.  However, as the rapper seems to be in a reflective space, the “Bounce Back” superstar seems to be closer to doing just that.  

“I don’t feel like this currently,” he explains, “but I had never gone through wanting to kill myself, give up on my life until the past few years and I didn’t realize how important it was to embrace the ups n downs of life and enjoy (in joy) taking active steps to better it. it’s the Journey!”  He continued to explain that throughout doing what he loved to do, he grew tired of it rather than becoming satisfied and it drove him insane, until adapting a new mentality and rediscovering his passion.  

“That’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to learn how to do.  I pray if and when it happens to you, you just hold on to your faith! You may discover more passions if it’s meant to be as well. Not sure if we are only meant to do one thing in life, who knows for sure,” says Big Sean.

All you need to do is just click on a game to begin playing it! Start with games created by us, which include: Fireboy and Watergirl, Troll Face Quest, Uphill Rush, and Bob the Robber. Barbie’s dream house is split into multiple floors and rooms, each with different activities to complete. For instance, the rooftop deck has an outdoor kitchen and grill where kiddos can chop vegetables and grill burgers before serving them to Barbie and the gang. Add a little friendly competition to your home with this glow-in-the-dark Capture the Flag set — a must-have for birthdays or family reunions. All 33 pieces light up, putting an Avatar-like spin on a classic lawn game.  http://juntendo-english.jp/forums/user/i4wsukf126/ Time to keep your kiddos busy and having fun during those Holiday/Winter/Christmas school parties again! To make your life a little easier, here are 12… As Zoom allows us to have a window into the outside world, it also allows us to show off the sole reason most of us go to Christmas parties, anyway: an ugly Christmas sweater contest. I’ve found out over the years of attending parties during the holiday season that even the historically popular party games can be duds in one way or another. For instance, when my wife and I beat several of my siblings in Scrabble after scoring a 50-point turn by spelling equalize with an ‘s’ (how the Brits do it), some folks who are normally well-behaved lost their cool and ended the game with insults and accusations. We had to rule out that game from then on. The determination of what actually qualifies as a word is just too difficult. People apparently get really serious about it! The classic board game of Monopoly gets the festive treatment with this “Christmas-opoly” version that all ages can play together. Collect Christmas properties, buy and trade presents—or if your luck runs out, you’ll get sent to the “naughty” corner.
