While 2017 may be coming to a close, Big Sean doesn't seem to be quite done gifting fans with new music just yet. Just last week, the Detroit hometown hero unleashed his latest effort, Double Or Nothing, a joint project featuring the sole production of none other than Metro Boomin'.
But before the 10-track album had enough time to be dissected by fans, rap purists and others alike, Twitter was ignited in a furious debate over the merits of the Detroit rapper.
Apparently, the point of contention is questionable bars from Sean Don, with many drawing attention to his Rosa Parks name drop. The newly released project, however, is heavy on guest appearances, including features from Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, 21 Savage, Young Thug and more. Only four tracks appear to be solo tracks from Big Sean, which has spawned unrelenting criticism.
The Detroit rapper teased the project earlier this month, saying, "Sometimes ego gets you in trouble. You've got to be aware enough to have your teammates around." Metro also liked the idea of teaming up for an album and mimicking the golden era of rap.
Take a look at a teaser for the project below.
While the duo clearly had the best of intentions, the internet had it's own opinions on the project. Take a look at some of the critiques below.

Big Sean you have to be the only rapper to disappoint on a collab album with Metro Boomin.— ⚡️ (@donsensei) December 8, 2017
However, others have come to the defense of the Detroit spitter with many citing Lil Pump as a prime example of why such harsh opinions are skewed.
Y’all really picked Big Sean’s worst lines on this Metro Boomin and tweeted it and ignored his good ones. Narratives boy I tell ya— is that Tyrese? (@RedNationBlogga) December 11, 2017
