Sean says Jay Z told him that he'd earned the chain.
It seems Jay Z is happy with how Big Sean's new album turned out. Just before he released I Decided, his fourth studio album, Sean revealed that Hov had gifted him with an iconic Roc-A-Fella chain, posting a picture proudly rocking the new jewelry on Instagram.
"Hov just gave this to me!," he wrote. "Told me I earned it!"
Jay Z doesn't give a Roc chain to just anyone. Kanye was famously gifted with a chain when it was announced that he was signing with Jay's-then label Roc-A-Fella records. The on-stage moment was featured in Kanye's "Through The Wire" video (starts at the 4-minute mark).
