Big Sean's "I Decided" Goes Platinum

(FreshAsFrankie) It appears Big Sean can add another victory to his to career, as his album “I Decided” has reached platinum status.

The Detroit rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that his latest album sold over 1 million copies since its released in February.

“For the creatives, the dreamers I made this album for, I Decided is now certified platinum. The fans got me 4eva. Thank you #DonLife GOOD Music/DEF JAM #BacktoBackPlatinumAlbums #IDecided yeeeeeeee,” he captioned the photo of him posted in front of his new plaque.

Big Sean went hard on “I Decided” which is his fourth studio album. The album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200. The album was backed with three incredible singles: “Bounce Back,” “Moves” and “Jump Out the Window.”

The album features guest appearances from The Dream, Migos, and Big Sean’s girlfriend, Jhene Aiko. Alongside dope bars from Big Sean, the production for the project was excellent with beats from Metro Boomin, Dj Mustard, and many others.

However, Big Sean doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Earlier this month, while speaking with MTV News, Quavo mentioned that the Migos have songs with Big Sean in the tank.

Judge Rules That Rapper Tay-K Will Be Tried as an Adult in Murder Case

  
(FreshAsFrankie) Texas-born rapper Tay-K was scheduled to appear in court today (August 31), but his date was postponed. Tay-K, born Tamor McIntyre, is facing capital murder charges, which carries a life imprisonment sentence or the death penalty.

Tay-K’s appearance was postponed due to lack of evidence. His lawyer, James McMillan, spoke earlier this week about Tay-K’s case. McMillan, who previously represented Kodak Black, sai: “The Race” rapper “has this dire situation on his back, but this opportunity on the other hand. I’m tasked with trying to make sure we maximize his opportunities so he can mount as strong of a criminal defense as possible.”

New York Times reporter Joe Coscarelli spoke to McMillan on Wednesday (August 30), and he was told that Tay-K would be tried as an adult in the case. The judge told Tay-K that the decision to move the case to adult court had no bearing of his guilt or innocence the case, and added that officers testified that there was no evidence that the rapper had weapons or engaged in any violent acts. McMillan went on to say that he believes Tay-K will be exonerated on all the charges.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the details of Tay-K’s case.
