Big Sean Dropping Detroit Mixtape In September

By Rob Markman

Big Sean is finally famous, but the G.O.O.D. Music MC hasn’t forgotten about the dedicated fan base that has helped get him to the top. Fans can expect a ton of new music from the charismatic spitter in the coming months. Sean will of course be a part of G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer album and he expects to drop his sophomore effort before the year’s end, but before all of that he is going reward listeners with a free mixtape.

Sean took to Twitter Monday night to prepare fans for all that he has planned for his September 5 mixtape, Detroit. “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,” Sean tweeted. “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.”

There is no set date for Sean’s sophomore album, but he did promise it’ll come before the year closes and also teased the LP’s first single, which he will be releasing “very soon.”

“BEFORE my album, the GOOD Music Compilation ‘Cruel Summer’ is coming which is scheduled for next month (Sep. 18th). 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,” he said. “Its a completely different set of songs from my album n from the GOOD compilation.”

The “My Last” spitter directed fans to his website, where he posted a 48-second, black-and-white preview clip of him with a snake slithering around his neck.
