Big Sean Announces New Mixtape ‘Detroit’

Big Sean

After months of anticipation, Big Sean has officially announced the title and release date for his new mixtape. The G.O.O.D. Music MC pays homage to his hometown of Detroit with the title. The project will arrive on September 5, prior to the release of the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer (Sept. 18) and his as-yet-untitled sophomore album.

“BEFORE my album, the GOOD Music Compilation ‘Cruel Summer’ is coming which is scheduled for next month (Sep. 18th),” tweeted Sean. “BUT before that I wanted to give u guys this mixtape I have on deck, I feel now is the perfect time for it, I wanted to make sure my album was pretty much done before i gave u a mixtape.”

The follow-up to his 2010 tape Finally Famous Vol. 3: BIG will feature J. Cole and Juicy J, among others. He plans to start releasing songs and videos this week. “I paid for all the videos n promo for this tape myself outta my pocket,” said Sean.

Meanwhile, his sophomore album is due before the end of the year, with the first single coming “very soon.” “We been working hard, everyday for the past 8 months… And I can honestly say that me, my label, my team are more than excited how my new album sounds,” he said of the follow-up to 2011’s Finally Famous. “It’s everything I want it to be n more. A true representation of what I stand for, what I believe in, how I live, great story telling, n great production. I took my time with it and it made all the difference.”

In the black-and-white trailer for Detroit, Sean sits on a soundstage with a snake around his neck. Watch below.

    Anyone suprised it doesn’t have any Fianlly Famous stuff in the title? Just kidding ofcourse. Hope no one will take it as hating or anything. I really can’t wait for the tape as well as “Cruel Summer” . Big Sean is one of the best rappers, like for real.
