We’re at the end of 2017, and new music just keeps flowing our way. One project that’s created quick hype is the collaborative album by hip-hop heavy hitters Big Sean and Metro Boomin, Double or Nothing.
This drops following last month’s release of “Pull Up N Wreck,” featuring 21 Savage, to which many speculated that this could be a part of a full-length project.
Double or Nothing comes at the end of a great year for the rapper-and-producer pair. Earlier this year Sean’s fourth studio album I Decided, had been certified platinum; Metro earned the title of music’s most in-demand producers.
The unexpected 10-song album includes guest features from Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Swae Lee and Kash Doll. However, Big Sean’s lyrics are at the center of discussion. They aren’t too crazy, but let’s keep it real—is anyone listening for lyrics in this new age? With some weak rhymes and some good coming from the Detroit raised rapper, the album could be considered ‘average.’
One line that’s gotten much heat from “Go Legend,” contains the line: “I’ll sock you out yo’ socks,” rapped with much enthusiasm.
The album could easily be compared with Metro’s last collaborative collection Without Warning with Migos’ Offset and 21 Savage, a more likely pair. With catchy hooks and fire beats provided by Metro Boomin, Double or Nothing is worth taking a listen—it could bang your speakers, or not.
