New Big Sean
Friday, Detroit rapper Big Sean released his 6th studio album entitled Detroit 2. This album seems to be a coming of age type of album Big Sean. The 32-year-old rapper delves into some deep topics within his new work. On a song entitled Lucky Me, he talks about being diagnosed with heart disease at the age of 19. He said he was able to overcome the disease by visiting holistic doctors, who prescribed him magnesium.
Big Sean is one of the rappers who always represent their hometown. Over the course of his careers, Big Sean has become synonymous with Detroit. You can look no further than Sean naming one of his previous mixtapes, after his beloved city, and now doing the same with his album. On this album, he took his love for the city to the next level. The nineteenth track on the album is entitled Friday Night Cypher. This track is a hardcore hip-hop track, with no course, no bridge, just rappers going in on the beat, a rarity in today’s hip-hop scene. This song also has a couple of other unique qualities about it, it features 10 rappers and is 10 minutes long. The song seems to be a celebration to Detroit, it only features Detroit artists. Eminem, Drego, Sada Baby, Kash Doll, Payroll, 42 Dugg, Tee Grizzly, Boldy James, and Royce Da 5’9. The track samples the classic Clips song “Grinding”. Every single artist had a hot verse.
Obviously a few of these rappers are already known, but shout out to Sean for sharing his platform to some of the artists who are not as well known. Detroit 2 is shaping up to be one of the best rap albums of 2020.
