Answering a tweet from a fan saying that the Detroit holiday 313 Day could have been a good timing for the release, Big Sean has announced on Sunday that his re-mixed and remastered Detroit project is coming to all streaming platforms next month!
“@BigSean today would’ve been a good day to have Detroit on Apple Music”, the fan tweeted, to which Sean answered, “Next month the Detroit mixtape will be on all streaming services, re-mixed and mastered properly, finally! Happy 313 day tho”.
Sean’s critically-acclaimed Detroit mixtape, a love letter to his Michigan hometown, dropped in 2012 with the likes from Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Chris Brown, French Montana, Royce da 5’9, and Tyga. The sequel to the project dropped last summer, featuring Post Malone, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Nipsey Hussle and served as Sean’s fifth mixtape.
The rapper told New York Magazine, “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”.
Over the weekend, Sean also took the opportunity to share a pair of pictures of the packaging for the vinyl edition of Detroit 2 and announced that he is back in the studio with Hit-Boy preparing some new music.
Big Sean was at the Grammy Awards this weekend, where he was nominated for ‘Best Rap Performance’ for “Deep Reverence” featuring the late Nipsey Hussle.
