After Jay Z listened to Big Sean's fourth studio album, I Decided, the mogul gifted the Detroit native with his famous stamp of approval; a diamond studded Roc-A-Fella chain.

The legacy of the coveted item continues with Hov's latest gesture. Big Sean has been on a strict press run for his latest project, but in between all of the running around, he found time to chop it up with Roc Nation's CEO, and received the jewelry piece along with some words of affirmation from the legend MC.

Although an era where a chain serving as a symbol of a rapper's alliance or signing to a label seems to have faded, the Tidal owner gave the recognizable chain to one artist who was originally signed by his Watch The Throne partner, Kanye West. Ye is no stranger to this gesture as he himself received the Roc-A-Fella chain during a show in his hometown of Chicago, Ill.

Big Sean's latest project features The Dream, Jeremih, Jhene Aiko, and his fellow Detroit legend Eminem. Sean is set to follow up his album drop with a performance this Super Bowl weekend alongside Nas, and hinted at a follow-up collaborative album with Aiko as part of their group, TWENTY88. It's safe to say Big Sean has his thumb on 2017.
