Big Sean Drops Bars For Jhené Aiko On New Nas Collab “Replace Me”:
The hip-hop world is currently as a whole bumping Nas‘ new album King’s Disease, the Queens-bred rap vet’s 13th studio album. One of the standout cuts is a collaboration between Don Toliver and Big Sean called “Replace Me,” and many have noticed that Sean’s verse pays lowkey tribute to his relationship with R&B sensation Jhené Aiko.
On “Replace Me,” Sean uses his entire verse to break down his deep connection with an on-again/off-again lover. While he never actually drops her name officially, lines like “I even bought your daughter clothes and your father clothes” or “I’m not your ex, I’m your ecstasy” make it easy to tell that Aiko may be the one he’s referencing.
If that isn’t enough, the line “You know I’m good at reading you, I spent like ten thousand hours” connects a little too well with Jhené’s own Nas collab “10K Hours” off her latest project CHILOMBO. Don Toliver is also featured on the Hit-Boy-produced song, who also acted as executive producer for the entire King’s Disease project overall, so we can only hope this one ends up being an official single with even a cameo from the “Sativa” singer herself.
