Big Sean Reveals Kanye West’s Contribution To ‘Detroit 2’ And His Favorite Moment When Creating The Album

Big Sean finally released his Detroit 2 album on Friday, after teasing it for well over a year. With 21 tracks and appearances from Jhene, Ty Dolla Sign, the late Nipsey Hussle, Eminem, Young Thug, Wale, and a plethora of other names, the album stands as his longest and most collaborative album to date. Stopping by Twitter for a Q&A session with fans, Big Sean answered a wide range of questions about the album and some other things.

To kick off the Q&A session, a fan asked Big Sean what Kanye West contributed as an executive producer for Detroit 2. “Lotta advice!” Big Sean answered. “And more, he actually did a lot of references n parts that helped out a lot.” Sean was also asked about his favorite moment of making the album. “When I felt hopeless as f*ck after losing so many close people and role models and wrote ‘Feed’ that was the most therapeutic!” he said. “Also lucky Me and finishing Body Language. I wrote 5 versions of Body Language. 5!!!”

Even though the album hasn’t even been out for a full weekend, Sean was also asked if he would release a deluxe version. “I dont know, if i feel like its needed. i just want to be clear tho, i dropped deluxes for my 1st, 2nd, 3rd albums. that was always a standard for me. i just felt like i Decided didn’t need one because it was more of a concept album to me.”

Big Sean also answered questions about being on Justin Bieber’s next album, his favorite verse from Detroit 2, the one artist he hoped to get on the album but failed to, and if he plans to make yet another Twenty88 album.
