While details of the capsule are unknown, he previewed two pieces from the collabo -- a T-shirt, featuring the Baby Milo character alongside a version of himself; and a new version of BAPE's classic Shark Zip-Up hoodie.
The Big Sean x BAPE capsule is dropping in April.

Set to being releasing on March 30, the shoe will come with a velvet upper, black snake upper, cork upper, silk paisley upper and other special treatments.
The collection will drop at select retailers.
As he preps his anticipated sophomore album, At.Long.Last.A$AP, A$AP Rocky covers the April/May issue of Complex.
In the cover story, the Harlem rap star talked about a wide range of topics, including his ex-girlfriend, Iggy Azalea.
When asked how he felt about Iggy being viewed as not being very "authentic," he said: "That is unfortunate because nobody wants to be portrayed that way. I'm quite sure she doesn't. I think she works hard like the rest of us. Silly or not, 300 million people like to watch it on YouTube, so who the f*ck are we to say anything?
"It comes with the game," Rocky continued, in regarding to her criticism. "If she fake on something, somebody is going to call her bluff. That's life. I'm not looking at it from a standpoint of 'I used to be boning this chick's back out.' I'm looking at it [as] 'She's just a person.' You can't bluff. You gotta just be 100. That's all I could really say. The question is: Was she not being 100 about something?"

Tupac's voice, reading poetry taken from his song "Mama's Just A Little Girl," appeared in a Powerade commercial starring NBA star Derrick Rose in February.
Apparently, it marks the beginning of a "total reset" of the late rapper's estate by JAM Inc., who was hired by Afeni Shakur in 2013 to oversee her son's business, reports Billboard.
In partnership with Tom Whalley -- who is the current head of Loma Vista Records, who signed Shakur to Interscope in 1991 -- the company plans to keep Pac's legacy alive, similar to how they've managed the estates of the Doors, Rick James, JanisJoplin, the Ramones and Otis Redding, and consulting the Michael Jackson estate... via licensing, apparel and other media ventures.
Nearly a year after Apple's acquisition of Beats By Dre, the company is reportedly redesigning the service to compete with streaming giant, Spotify.
According to the New York Times, Apple has enlisted Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor to redesign their music app, alongside with a team of Apple and Beats employees, including co-founder Jimmy Iovine.
The paper says the tech giant recently attempted to persuade record labels to lower licensing costs, so that they could sell subscriptions to its streaming service for $8 a month, while services like Spotify and Rhapsody charge $10.
Record labels, however, did not agree to Apple's request.
An Apple employee told the paper that its new music app will feature "many of the same characteristics as the Beats Music streaming service."
Furthermore, the Beats Music name will likely be discarded.
If you're gonna be in Las Vegas for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, you won't be able to watch it unless you're staying at an MGM property. If you're gonna be in Las Vegas for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, you won't be able to watch it unless you're staying at an MGM property.
MGM shotcallers have decided to block all competitors from showing what is being touted as the "fight of the century."
MGM reportedly has an exclusivity deal, which blocks rival hotels on the Vegas Strip from showing the fight -- and that includes in-room, in bars, in the casino... so basically, anywhere.
Being that they will be hosting the fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, they want to completely control where it plays in the local market.

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are calling a truce in their nasty custody battle, for the sake of their son.
The former couple have agreed to co-parent 2-year-old Sebastian.
Wiz and Amber have been at each other's throats since splitting last fall.
Just last month, the rapper filed legal documents requesting more custody, claiming Amber was an unfit mother. He accused her of staying out all night, while staff took care of their son, among other things.
A new song by Wiz called "See You Again," off the Furious 7 soundtrack, helped the pair bury the hatchet.
The much-hyped interview with Karrueche Tran on OWN aired on Saturday night (March 28), during which she opened up about her well-publicized relationship with Chris Brown.
During the interview, the 26-year-old tells her side of the story, her feelings about the singer fathering a child with another woman, why they stayed together for so long, and her thoughts on him getting back with Rihanna.
"This is about recognizing my mistakes and learning from them," Karrueche wrote on Instagram, in announcing the special's premiere. "I own up to all the poor choices I have made and pray for the better. I pray everyday to God to strengthen me as a human and a young woman. I only ask that you at least understand me, whether you continue to like me or hate me. At the end of the day, we all have not been at our best at times so please learn from me and never forget to love yourself."
Below are some of the highlights:
After clinching their first division title in 39 years earlier this week, the Golden State Warriors continue their amazing run, as they match the franchise record for wins in a season.
Steph Curry scored 38 points and 10 assists, to lead his team to a 107-84 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night (March 27), giving them their 59th win of the season.
It was also the Warriors' eighth straight victory, solidifying their hold on the top spot in the Western Conference.
"I think we executed offensively, for most of that game, the best we have in a while," Curry said. "Obviously, we did what we did on defense, but the ball was moving all around and guys were making plays and it was just fun to watch and fun to play."
The Grizzlies sit at the #2 spot in the Western Conference with a 50-23 record.
Hugh Jackman revealed Saturday (March 28) that he will reprise his role as Wolverine one final time.
The 46-year-old took to Instagram, posting a photo of his hand with the Marvel character's signature claws, along with the caption: "WOLVERINE ... ONE LAST TIME."
With the revelation, it seems Jackman will likely not play Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse, since the sequel to The Wolverine spinoff serving as his last appearance. It's set for release in March 2017.
Jackman first played the mutant in 2000's X-Men, when he took over the role from Dougray Scott who sustained an injury. He's since played Wolverine seven times, including two solo films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine.
It's unclear if he'll make cameos in Apocalypse and/or Deadpool.
