Bounce Back - Big Sean




The Experience: If you a real one, then you know how to bounce back... Can't win all the time, but can you at least bounce back if you have the right stuff...


Music video: Big Sean sings in a surreal world with ocean instead of sky. It's a a harsh and random world. A world full of sin - the single apple a woman picks and eats. A world full of saints - the statues that come to life. A world full of sex - the woman twerking in a bikini. And a world full of people in search of a future - the schoolgirls and the baby. A world without happiness, but with the promise that happiness is possible... maybe?

The Meaning of Bounce Back: Big Sean sings about bouncing back, turning losses - L - into gain. Even though the song's view life is superficial - sex (b-tches and -ss) and money (stacks) - Big Sean's ingredients for success are serious. Perseverance is a must: never takin' summer or fall off. Loyalty is a must - even in a f-cking crisis I'm never on some switching sides sh-t. Faith is there too - faith of a mustard seed I keep growing and God talk to me in silence but I hear him every time man But putting together sex and God's blessings the way Big Sean combines twerking, votive candles and the Sacred Heart is a bit of a stretch. Is Big Sean serious, or just sarcastic. Does he bounce back with God, or in spite of God's silence? 

Ask yourself: Where do you go for strength and hope when you fail?

Album: I Decided (2016)

LYRICS:

[Future]
If Young Metro don't trust you I'ma shoot you

[Big Sean]
Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Wake up every morning, by the night, I count stacks
Knew that -ss was real when I hit, it bounce back
(You ain't getting checks)
Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Boy, I been broke as h-ll, cashed a check and bounced back
D town LAX, every week I bounce back
If you a real one, then you know how to bounce back

Don't owe nobody, owe nobody
Always on the f-ckin' job, I got no hobbies
Got the city f-ckin' with me cause I'm homegrown
Vibin' out more than my phone though
Leave me 'lone, me on my own though
Look, I cut that b-tch off like an edit
My daddy a G, it's genetics (Straight up)
I heard ya new sh-t, it's pathetic
Ya contract should be s-shredded
Took my dogs on a private jet from the public housing
I kept it G, yeah, one thousand
Clique star studded like the Paramount mountain
Everything I do is righteous
Betting on me is the right risk
Even in a f-cking crisis
I'm never on some switching sides sh-t
I switch gears to the night shift
Blacking out cause I'm enlightened
God talk to me in silence
But I hear him every time man
(Thank you God, God bless you, thank you so much)

Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Wake up every morning, by the night, I count stacks
Knew that -ss was real when I hit, it bounce back
(You ain't getting checks)
Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Boy, I been broke as h-ll, cashed a check and bounced back
D town LAX, every week I bounce back
If you a real one, then you know how to bounce back

Look, I woke up in beast mode
With my girl, that's beauty and the beast though
Been top 5, these n-ggas sleep though
Only thing that sold out is the seats though (Never sold my soul, never will never have)
N-gga how dare you stand before me and not respect my authority
If you f-ck with my glory I'ma drop the L and get gory
I done did everything expect worry
H-lla drama, my life story
Faith of a mustard seed, I kept growing
I knew that this life was meant for me
N-ggas change up more than wishin' wells
Karma come around I'll wish 'em well
Livin' like I'm on a limitless pill
I kill the scene like I'm Denzel
Crazy like my jacket strapped up
N-gga I don't act but I'll act up
Brown paper bag like the lunch packed up
Back, back, back, back up
N-gga I'ma need like 10 feet
Or get stomped out with ten feet
I'ma always lose my temper
You cannot "count to ten" me
If I lose 1, I bounce back like 2, 3 did with 4, 5
Seen court rooms and court sides, ain't too many seen both sides
N-gga f-ck what you know
N-gga I'm takin' back control
The under dog just turned into the wolf and the hunger steady grows
Yeah, I call shots while you call off
Never takin' summer or fall off
When you stay that committed to it, you just fall down and never fall off

Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Wake up every morning, by the night, I count stacks
Knew that -ss was real when I hit, it bounce back
(You ain't getting checks)
Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back
Boy, I been broke as h-ll, cashed a check and bounced back
D town LAX, every week I bounce back
If you a real one, then you know how to bounce back

[Kanye West and Big Sean]
Bounce back, bounce, bounce
Bounce back, bounce, bounce
Bounce, bounce, b-tch, bounce (Yeah)
Is you a real one?
Is you a real one?
Real one
Real one
Is you a real one?
Real one
Real one
Gone
