In a world of hot takes, live stories and virtual pile ons, dropping an album in the dead of night doesn't actually seem like such a bad idea. The cover of darkness unfortunately didn't spare Detroit rapper Big Sean from the internet's acid wit, as he and super producer Metro Boomin released Double Or Nothing at midnight last night to immediate and relentless Twitter roasting:
Kid at my job playing the new Big Sean album in the stock room. I will report this guy to Human Resources — KC (@KCM3____) December 8, 2017
This mothafucka Big Sean said "I do this for the dawgs and nowadays we husky" someone slap the dad hat right off his head — BIG SHIT (@I_Am_DeGenz) December 8, 2017
You know big Sean really wrote a horrible line bc people legit can't even listen past it. They just deleted the album. Nigga spent thousands on it for it to be deleted after three songs. I'm fucking paralyzed — compare to me to who?If it aint the Notorious One (@KingUlyssesIV) December 8, 2017

This particular project aside, Big Sean is underrated (@ me) and given the outright robbery of Metro Boomin not being nominated for the Producer of the Year Grammy, we'll let this one slide by without holding him too accountable.
