Big Sean Detroit{Mixtape}

On August 20, 2012, Big Sean first announced the mixtape via Twitter and a YouTube video, titled "Big Sean Mixtape Announcement 2012".[2] Big Sean released three song previews in the shape of short music videos as promotion before the mixtape release; "How It Feel" on August 21, "24 Karats of Gold" on August 28 and "RWT" on September 4. Sean paid for the expenses of the videos himself.[3] The title of the mixtape pays homage to Sean's hometown of Detroit.

Detroit received widespread critical acclaim from music critics and fans, who hailed it as Sean's best work. The mixtape was named the 26th best album of 2012 by Complex magazine.[4] It also won Best Mixtape at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards.[5]

Following the landmark arrival of DETROIT, which features J Cole, Jhene Aiko, Chris Brown and more, saw nearly a million first-day downloads causing the DatPiff site to crash, Complex included the mixtape in its tally of The 50 Best Albums Of 2012. DETROIT went on to win Best Mixtape honors at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

No matter how big you get, never forget where you came from. Also, never forget where you are trying to go. Those are the two themes that dominate Detroit. While this mixtape may not have been all that powerful to you back then, knowing what Sean has gone through and who he is today makes it feel much sweeter.

In a nod to the 2012 mixtape, which featured spoken-word features by Common, Jeezy and Snoop Dogg, the new album includes contributions by Stevie Wonder, Dave Chappelle and Erykah Badu, paying tribute to the people and history of Detroit.

Big Sean is one of my favorite rappers in the bigger mainstream game. He's got a raw fresh style that has the right level of confidence without being overly cocky. Here's his highly anticipated new mixtape Detroit that dropped last night. In this tribute to his hometown, he features J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Lex Luger and full cast of others. Featured a few of my favorite tracks off the mixtape, or grab the whole thing here. Enjoy!

In honor of the Detroit holiday 313 Day, Big Sean has announced that his original mixtape is coming to all streaming services for the first time. Taking to Twitter, the Grammy-nominated rapper said the re-mixed and mastered project will arrive sometime in April.

Exactly 10 years ago, Big Sean dropped his Detroit mixtape, which went on to become one of his most well-loved bodies of work to date. Today (Sept. 5), he celebrated its anniversary by officially making it available on all major streaming platforms for his longtime fans to enjoy.

The original Detroit mixtape featured stories about the city from A-listers like Young Jeezy, Common, and Snoop Dogg (then going by Snoop Lion). Sean returned to the previous format this time around, with Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder, and Dave Chappelle bringing their experiences with Detroit to the table.

Big Sean's roots are inarguably in Detroit. He may have grown into a multi-platinum rap superstar, but the unpolished talent and blunt force of his style owe a significant debt to being raised in the beautiful but unforgiving city that has consistently produced some of music's most unique artists. Sean's 2012 mixtape Detroit was an early testament to his love and gratitude for his city, and eight years later his fifth studio album, Detroit 2, finds the rapper revisiting themes of formative experiences, self-reflection, and growth through a lens of appreciation for the city that made him. One of the first things that stands out about Detroit 2 is its nearly overwhelming guest list. Songs are dotted with features from huge names, with some of the most inspired moments on the album coming from the late Nipsey Hussle's verses on "Deep Reverence," Lil Wayne's signature all-directions-at-once wordplay on "Don Life," and Travis Scott's narcotic hooks on "Lithuania." The album's energy crests with the ferocious, nearly-ten-minute freestyle session "Friday Night Cypher." As the beat changes frequently, 42 Dugg, Tee Grizzley, Kash Doll, Sada Baby, Eminem, Boldy James, and other Detroit heavyweights take turns on the mike, further highlighting the collective intensity of the Detroit scene. As if the musical cameos aren't enough (Post Malone, Young Thug, Diddy, Anderson .Paak and many others all swing through on various tracks), the album is broken up into three segments that start with anecdotal spoken stories about times in Detroit from Dave Chappelle, Erykah Badu, and Stevie Wonder. Despite a personnel list that borders on audacious, Big Sean is at his best on Detroit 2 when he sounds like he's standing alone in his room giving himself a pep talk. "Harder Than My Demons" somersaults through bars that slowly move from confidence to triumph to belligerence. "Lucky Me" finds Sean effortlessly trying on different flows like he's shopping for a new hat, spitting out biographical lyrics that jump between different points in his life. The production is clean and engaging, with polished beats and the occasional glossy hook (the R&B-infused "Body Language") providing a contrast for Big Sean's visceral rhymes and urgently delivered performances.

Detroit is the city Big Sean calls home and he shows much love to where he's from with his latest mixtape, named after his stomping grounds. The G.O.O.D. Music signee delivers 16 tracks featuring a wealth of collaborators.

The followup to Sean's 2012 Detroit mixtape is his first album since 2017 when he released both I Decided, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and his collaboration with producer Metro Boomin, Double or Nothing.

Along with Kanye West and Big Sean, Hit-Boy executive produced Detroit 2, Big Sean's latest album (out today) and the sequel to his 2012 mixtape Detroit. VICE caught up with Hit-Boy while he was taking a break in his studio, one day before Detroit 2 dropped.
