Big Sean Talks About Heart Disease He Battled With Growing Up In New Interview
For his new album, Big Sean is apparently opening up like never before, and one of the revelations he makes deals with a potentially life-threatening illness he faced as a teenager. Apparently, it’s an issue that was miraculously cured.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly in an interview published on Tuesday (Oct. 15), Sean provided them with a listen to his new song “Lucky Me.” On the track, Sean relives a moment a holistic doctor cured him of a heart illness.
“Lucky me, I was diagnosed with a heart disease at 19/Doctors said they had to cut it open put a pacemaker on it to put it back on beat/’Til my mother took me to holistic doctors and they prescribed me magnesium for two weeks/Went back to the regular doctors and they said, ‘Huh? damn, looks like we don’t need to proceed,” Sean spits on the track.
Addressing his plans to offer more introspection, Sean says it was time to open up more about his life.
“I’ve never talked about certain things in my life,” Sean says of why he rapped about this instance. “It just kind of made me realize I need to really express some of these things.”
