Big Sean Reveals Features On "Detroit" Mixtape

Big Sean enlists a few famous friends for his upcoming mixtape, due September 5th.

Big Sean is gearing up for the September 5th release of his new mixtape Detroit, which is set to feature a handful of famous friends. During an interview with HHW, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper revealed that he enlisted J. Cole, Chris Brown, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa for the project, though didn't specify whether there will be more emcees on the offering.

"The only reason why I haven't put it out yet is because I just didn't want to put anything on there that we really could have used on the album. I wanted to be comfortable with every single thing," he said. "That was the only hold up. We've been rocking to it and listening to it and we've got a lot of good people on there. The mixtape has J.Cole, Chris Brown, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, you know, good a** features."

Sean, who said he's already filmed a few promo videos for the tape, said that his upcoming sophomore album will be a "step up" from the mixtape. "A lot of people don't want me to do it because they are saying 'man, the album is what it is and I don't know why you want to drop a mixtape," he said. "But I ain't doing it to let people know where I'm artistically at, I'm doing an album to let people know where I'm artistically at. I'm doing an album to change the world. I'm doing a mixtape because that's how I came up. That's where a lot of my core fan base is, my core believers, and people who believe in me."

    DUDE IS SUCH A PUSSY

  • Anono

    looking forward to it. Like people are saying, he should have more Detroit features on there, but then again, it seems like he didn't reveal all of the features, so who knows. Finally Famous Vol. 3 was dope as hell, way better than the album, so hopefully he can get back to that shit.

  • BIG SEAN

    lol at this equal Big Sean naming his mixtape 'Detroit'

  • @CJonno90

    "J.Cole, Chris Brown, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa" I would've thought for a mixtape he can get rappers whom are actually talented not just for popularity him and Royce are cool, could've got Royce or maybe even the entire Slaughterhouse. Or rep Detroit and get Elzhi, Black Milk etc. Or maybe rep Michigan and get Jon Connor. But whatever even if he did get them guests I still wouldn't listen to the mixtape making this WHOLE comment a "moo point".

  • Eyes and Teeth

    FUCK Big Sean. This proves how lame he is. How the fuck do you call a mixtape Detroit and not have any Detroit rappers on it!? C'mon... Detroit has killer MC's like Danny Brown, Elzi, Royce, Guilty, Chavis Chandler, Quelle Chris, Zelooperz and others. BIG SEAN SUCKS!

    • STRIK9

      Danny Brown?! Dont remind muthafuckas that hes from here!!

    • Anonymous

      ? You mention Detroit has killer MCs and don't mention EMINEM? I'm gonna take it you didn't say Em because it's obvious Em wouldn't work with Sean especially on just a mixtape.

    cause they would have killed him and made him look stupid he is no where on their level his a soft mainstream artist

  • Anonymous

    If he could pull it off he should have royce and elzhi,how can you call the mixtape Detroit and not have any Detroit rapper on it.

    • Anonymous

      obviously its called detrott because thats where he's fron. no where does that imply that he must feature even one detroit rapper, let alone many.

    • Real shit

      Agreed. No Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Danny Brown or other established Detroit acts. No up and comer like Boldy James either.
