Big Sean’s single “IDFWU” raised a few eyebrows upon its release, which conveniently followed his break-up with ex-fiancee Naya Rivera even though he has denied that this is any sort of diss towards the Glee star. Sure. While I question his professionalism with the timing of the release, he redeemed himself with the accompanying (Kanye-assisted) music video and has impressed, yet again, with this incredibly restrained live performance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Obliterating all the curse words doesn’t leave for much to be left in the song but evidently Big Sean, and guest E-40, took it all in their stride and turned out a decent performance suitable for family-safe holiday television viewing. He did, however, introduce the track with “This song is dedicated to everybody that deserve it.” No shade, Sean. Take a look at the performance above.
