Big Sean brought it full circle Tuesday with a multi-beat freestyle session on Funk Flex's Hot 97 show that included a run over a classic College Dropout era Kanye West beat.

"We fresh from the awards, bro, I just got off the stage like an hour ago," Sean explained, followed by some reminiscing from Flex about the first time the two met, pre-fame.

"You came up to me, you said 'I just signed with Ye' and he says 'I have some stuff coming that you gon' like' . . . But you haven't changed. The way I met you that day is the way you've always been," Flex said. "I've always noticed that about you."

At the top of the ensuing freestyle, Sean congratulated Young Thug on his No. 1 album So Much Fun and touted the importance of following the "proper preparation prevents poor performance" mantra. Later, Sean went in over Ye's beloved "Through the Wire," complete with some personalized takes on a couple choice lines from the original song.

Sean was indeed "fresh from the awards," having performed Monday night at the MTV Video Music Awards. He linked up with ASAP Ferg for the TV debut of their newly released collab "Bezerk."
