Big Sean is finally ready to go back to Detroit.
On Monday, the rapper announced that his long-awaited fifth album, Detroit 2, is dropping Sept. 4th.
The followup to Sean's 2012 Detroit mixtape is his first album since 2017 when he released both I Decided, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and his collaboration with producer Metro Boomin, Double or Nothing.
Speaking to EW last year, Sean opened up on why he felt the need to take a step back out of the spotlight (he previously had high-profile relationships with Naya Rivera and Ariana Grande).
"When I turned 30 and I moved to Slash’s old house in Beverly Hills," he said of his tipping point. "It’s like a dream house, a dream neighborhood. And I was the most unhappy I’ve ever been in my life, and that really don’t make sense because these are some of the things that I always wanted. That’s when I realized that all these things that are conditional can’t really give me the unconditional love that I was in dire need of. That you come to a point in life where you realize that the car, the house, whatever it is that you thought you wanted, was just a temporary fix. And what I really was looking for was the fulfillment that only following your heart and being passionate can give you. I took some time to work on myself and I was able to have a good therapist, good mentors… I truthfully feel like it’ll really shine through on the full album."
