Big Sean reunited with Hit-Boy behind the boards and returns with his “What A Life” single and coinciding visual on Friday (October 22).
The clip is directed by Joe Weil and kicks off with Sean Don floating into the sky, which he describes as some “Goku type shit.” Doing his best Candyman impression, the Detroit native channels zen vibes to remain still while an alleged 65,000 bees swarm his body as if nothing happened.
Sean then transitions through different roles in life, such as taking the stage for a concert, heading to a wedding where all of the bridesmaids are brandishing assault rifles, before finally becoming a football coach with Hit-Boy as his assistant.
Big Sean also saw himself end up on the wrong end of a lot of bee-related jokes thanks to his affinity for the 1992 Candyman movie, which was remade this year. Even Freddie Gibbs had some fun at Sean’s expense on Twitter.
“Man I gotta get so rich I let bees sting me in the dick,” Gibbs joked.
Big Sean made a buzz earlier this week in his L.A. Leakers debut, serving up a four-part freestyle filled with nine minutes of bristling bars. His fiery rhymes even caught the ear of Nas, who texted Big Sean and showed him some love.
“Nas just txt me saying ‘you murdered these freestyles thanks for pushing us all’ that’s crazy AF to me when I really thought about Nas txt’n me that,” Sean revealed on Twitter. “I’m at the crib right now in Detroit n I’m just feeling grateful I actually am doing what I said I would. Shit feel like a dream.”
