Big Sean may be stopped from performing at Princeton university over his "misogynistic" lyrics.

Big Sean's "IDFWU" may have earned the rapper his highest chart placement yet, but it could also be the reason he's barred from performing at Princeton University as part of its annual Lawnparties event. A promo clip for the show, which featured the song prominently, raised red flags among students, who have now opened a petition to stop the rapper from performing at the school.

A student by the name of Duncan Hosie took the first measures in halting the show, doing some "research" on the rapper and apparently finding plenty more misogyny in his back catalog. 

A line from Sean's collaboration with Nicki Minaj, "Dance (A$$)," has been plastered around the school, reading "If she look good she pay me in sex", with a second line suggesting: "Want to take this down? Take down Big Sean." 

Due to contractual obligations, organizers stress that the show will likely have to go on despite complaints. We'll keep you posted on the story as information arrives.
