My first album came out almost 10 years ago… my 1st tape 14 years ago. I’m happy to be here with you guys today 🙏🏾💙
I pray you guys can feel my energy cause it’s pure. I don’t know if you’ll love it or hate it, but atleast I put effort into something positive. I plan on getting better and better either way and walking in my purpose! I’m here to stay. Nothing can stop me, I’m unstoppable!
Detroit 2 is Sean’s fifth studio album and the follow-up to 2012’s Detroit. “When I was making Detroit 2, I felt like I was returning to my roots but with a stronger foundation. The music reminded me of the Detroit mixtape while I was making it,” he told New York magazine. “I don’t know if it’ll do better than anything I’ve ever done, but at least I am a hundred percent happy with it.”
