Big Sean is set to release a follow-up to his 2012 mixtape 'Detroit' and shared a teaser trailer for the new release.
Big Sean has announced his new album is called 'Detroit II'.
The 32-year-old rapper marked his birthday on Wednesday (25.03.20) by posting a trailer to tease his new record inspired by the Michigan city.
In the clip, he said: ''Detroit, to me is home. But I feel like it's more than just a city, you know. It's for real a mentality.''
Whilst on Twitter he announced that the record is a follow-up to his 2012 mixtape 'Detroit'.
He wrote: ''Detroit the mixtape deserves a sequel ... feels right.''
The hip-hop star also shared a picture of himself surrounded by flowers, balloons and his birthday cake on Instagram, and added: ''Quarantine birthday's lookin like
''Health is wealth'' got a whole new meaning lately. If u still here, you chosen! Gratitude #Detroit2 (sic)''
Sean previously revealed in October that he tapped Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill and more for his first solo record since 2017's 'I Decided', 'Don Life', which will see him get real about being diagnosed with heart disease as a teenager and family, and appears to be separate to his 'Detroit' follow-up.
Malone and Rocky feature on the track 'Wolves', which Sean said is about his family being close like a pack of wolves.
He explained: ''[That song is about] my family growing up. ''Everybody's in there, my grandma, my mom, my brother -- it's like they were a pack of wolves and they were the sweetest and strongest. It's one of my favourites on the album.''
Rocky also features on another song with Atlanta rapper MadeinTYO.
He said: ''Rocky had a verse on ['Wolves' originally], but he ended up doing the verse to another song that he and I felt fit a little better with the album.
''That's another song I got with MadeinTYO. But I just kept it dialed-in throughout.''
The track 'Lucky Me' sees the 'Bounce Back' star open up about his battle with heart disease and how his mother's holistic medicine helped mend him.
Recalling a scary moment when he was rushed to the emergency room after passing out, Sean said: ''I couldn't even walk from one side of the room to the other without getting super-tired.
I passed out once in the shower and got rushed to the emergency room.''
On the song, he raps: ''Lucky me, I was diagnosed with a heart disease at 19.
''Doctors said they had to cut it open put a pacemaker on it to put it back on beat / 'Til my mother took me to holistic doctors and they prescribed me magnesium for two weeks / Went back to the regular doctors and they said, 'Huh? damn, looks like we don't need to proceed.'''
There is also a brief cameo from Mill and Diddy on another song.
He said: ''There's a song where Meek Mill just says two lines, and Puff had a couple of lines.''
