"I Decided" is Big Sean's fourth album. This album is not like his other albums, it has a concept. He's telling a story of a guy that feels like he failed at everything in his life; his relationship with his parents, girlfriend, he’s not doing what he wanted to do as an occupation. But then something happens and he gets a second chance to do his whole life again. The album is him as a younger self but having the wisdom of an older version of him to make sure he doesn't make the same mistakes.
