Big Sean’s fifth studio album Detroit 2 has officially arrived.
Eight years following the release of his highly regarded Detroit mixtape, Sean has once again drawn heavy inspiration from the city that shaped him.
When I was making Detroit 2, I felt like I was returning to my roots but with a stronger foundation. I feel like my roots got even deeper. Not only did I reconnect with myself, I reconnected with my passion and my hunger. The music reminded me of the Detroit mixtape while I was making it. Before I decided to call the album Detroit 2, I kept going back to that idea: Man, I remember I was doing this when I made Detroit. I found myself doing some of the exact same things. I got back to journaling. I got back to not feeling restricted. The city of Detroit is owed so much respect and honor.
The album arrives nearly three years after Sean’s last solo effort I Decided.
At 21 tracks long, Detroit 2 comes loaded with features from Travis Scott, Post Malone, Young Thug, Lil Wayne and more—not to mention the Detroit posse cut “Friday Night Cypher” featuring Tee Grizzley, Kash Doll,Cash Kidd, Payroll ,42 Dugg, Boldy James, Drego, Sada Baby, Royce 5’9″ and last but not least, Eminem.
