Big Sean and Ariana Grande are totally, wildly, madly into each other and the couple is making that known in a new video posted by Big Sean.
On Tuesday, the Detroit rapper posted a vlog (video blog) about patience with cameos from Grande, Kanye West, Common, Jhene Aiko, John Legend, Mike Will Made It and several other artists in the industry.
“One thing that was necessary for me this year, just as a person in general was learning Patience,” Sean captioned the video on Instagram. “I want to share this short special video w/ you guys and invite you into my process. I’d like to share what “Patience” not only means to me, but the role patience has played in the making of my album “Dark Sky Paradise” 2.24.15!”
In the all black and white clip, the rapper can be seen mentally preparing for his forthcoming album, Dark Sky Paradise while talking about the importance of patience. At the 2:54 mark, he holds his girlfriend and brings her in for a sweet kiss. Cute!
Big Sean’s album drops on February 24.

Patience is the ability to accept trouble, suffer, delay, without getting angry or upset. I feel like if you can master patience, you can master anything. To sit and plan out your goals and dreams, strategize, understand how the universe works, how things manifest. The time it takes is part of your own learning process. It’s hard to realize this when things aren’t coming fast enough—whether it’s a check, a job, a loan, a dream, a goal—it all takes patience.
Always remember with the proper attention from the higher place, the purest place, the highest vibration, you’ll always get what you want. There’s no point in rushing. If you rush too much, you might not get where you’re going. Usually when you’re rushing, you’re stressing. It can affect the quality of anything and everything you’re doing. You might have 1,000 strikes before you hit a home run. To see the bottom is to see that the top is just as real and just as obtainable.
I realize patience is key for happiness. It allows you to be happier, to see the bigger picture in everything. I feel like wisdom is priceless, and patience is a major part of that. There are certain things you can control, some you can’t, but when you approach situations with patience, you’re bringing your best self to that situation—giving yourself the best chance of success of whatever’s at hand.
I learned there are a lot of lessons in patience. It can teach us a lot of things. I could give you 100 stories on how I wish I could’ve went back in time to talk to myself, tell me to ‘calm down or relax. Don’t let this throw you off.’ When I graduated high school, I decided to focus on music. It was one of the hardest things to watch all my homies at school, especially the schools I could’ve went to. I felt like everyone around me was progressing, and I was at a standstill. Man, I was doing a lot of reading. I realized you have to recognize you’re own process, and it can’t be measured by anything but happiness.
Just remember your journey is the most important part of the story—not the trophy. The time I spent frustrated, the press, afraid of what might happen or not happen was the worst things I ever went through. The worst feelings I ever felt. I didn’t get anywhere thinking or feeling like that. It was when I got out of that way of thinking that it all started turning around.
I realized that a man who masters patience is a master at everything else. To make it to the top of your game, it takes patience.
