Sean’s critically-acclaimed Detroit mixtape, a love letter to his hometown, was released on Sept. 5, 2012 and featured appearances from Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Chris Brown, French Montana, Royce da 5’9″, and Tyga.
In September, he dropped the chart-topping sequel Detroit 2 featuring Post Malone, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Nipsey Hussle.
