Big Sean is no longer 5'8," according to him.

On Tuesday (August 3), the "Go Big" rapper took to Instagram Story to share a video of him hanging with a 5'10'' friend, who he said he's just as tall as now.

“My ni**a Ronnie 5’10″… solid,” he said in the clip. “So b*tch, look at me next to him, b*tch. Ni**as try and hate on me like I’m 5’6.″ Nah, for real, I probably even grew like a couple inches."

Sean used the caption of the clip to explain how he was able to get taller at the age of 33.

“How da f**k I grow 2 inches? Chiropractor for a year straight twice a week, that’s how," he wrote. "Straight Spine thas how. I’m laughing cause it’s real.”

As fans know, Sean has made taking care of himself from the inside out a priority in recent years.

In March, the Detroit rapper opened up about his struggles with depression, sharing that he's contemplated suicide.

“You know, if you're a man and you're not working hard, it's like, 'Aw, you getting soft.' So that was always in the back of my head. I'm working, exhausting myself for years and years, and I couldn't get through the day without feeling terrible. I for sure contemplated suicide a lot of times, having guns in my hand, feeling it for real," Sean shared during an appearance on author and professor Michael Eric Dyson's Facebook Watch show, One Question One Mike. "[I] was even planning it out to the point where like, 'Hey, if I do kill myself, at least my family will get this amount of money." Sean added, “Because I was just stressed out and not happy. I realized that OK, I need to stop everything I’m doing and figure this out or I’m going to self-destruct.”

Sean went on to tell Michael that he was able to get out of that dark headspace by taking time off from work and putting himself first. “I took the time off, canceled everything I was doing, sought therapy, connected with God more, spiritually grounded myself, and put myself first as a priority for the first time ever,” he explained.
