I Do It

Album: Finally Famous: The Album (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This bass heavy, No I.D.-produced track is the second single from American Hip-Hop artist Big Sean's debut longplayer, Finally Famous: The Album. Renowned Chicago producer No ID, who is known as "The Godfather of Chicago hip hop," produced the majority of the album.
  • Finally Famous has the loose theme of hustling to achieve your goals running through the album. Sean explained to Artist Direct: "It embodies a story of a person realizing what he wants to do and his dreams and starting to live them out. Along the way, it tells a story of falling in and out of love, going through domestic love, partying, being young, and really finding oneself. That's the whole message behind the album, Finally Famous. I'm really excited, and I think a lot of people are going to relate to it. You can do everything to it — ride to it, smoke to it, have sex to it, cry to it, or vibe to it."
