Regarding West, Big Sean calls him "forever a brother, no matter how much we talk or don't talk." 

Big Sean, born Sean Anderson, also discusses coronavirus, which was beginning to take hold as the episode was taped.

"I was definitely looking forward to Coachella being now. I was very excited for that, (but) I understand, you've gotta be safe," says Sean, who is booked to perform at this year's festival.

Regarding cleanliness, "I've been wiping down my seats on my plane," he says. "I've been a germaphobe. I've been doing that before corona." 

Early on he gives a shout out to Detroit's Sweetwater Tavern, his favorite local wing spot.
