Big Sean had it all until his mental illness took over his life and caused a down fall in his career. Over this past weekend he opened up to his fans, posting videos on his Instagram sharing his experience with this illness.

“As I’m going into another year of life, wiser, I’m definitely seeing things different than how I used to see ’em” he stated also adding, ” I just wanted to speak on it and share, you know,because a lot of y’all need insight just like I do and probably felt similar too”.

Due to his depression, Big Sean had cancelled his tour to focus on therapy and allowing himself to get better. Fans had their speculations on what was going on with their favorite star and grew concerned until he shared with the world on his 31st birthday. He started off by saying, ” I just felt lost and I don’t know how I got there. I got a good therapist, I was blessed enough to talk to super spiritual people, and they made me realize what I was missing in my life, and one thing I was missing was clarity”.
