In late April, a photo of Detroit emcee’s Big Sean, Eminem, and Royce Da 5’9” appeared online and as a result caused quite a lot of buzz on the internet. Details on the studio session have stayed relatively limited, but during a recent appearance on NiteCap With Peter Bailey, Big Sean spoke momentarily on the session he deemed “historical.”
“It was crazy just coming from Detroit. We sat and talked for a couple of hours, even before we did anything musically. You know what I’m saying? So, I was just telling them how much—how crazy it is man coming from The D,” said Big Sean. “Them was the superstars. Them was the heroes in rap music. And they showed me that you can be worldwide. Cause it was always local heroes, but obviously one of the biggest rappers in the world is from Detroit. It was a big deal there. It was an honor man, straight up.”
Big Sean, who partnered with Adidas last year, also talked about Rick Ross’ controversial “U.O.E.N.O.” lyric and the rapper being removed from Reebok following the public uproar to the song.
“The content for this new album has been way more mature. People are gonna see as soon as you start putting the content out. I don’t think you should necessarily censor what you say if you feel like how you feel,” the rapper revealed. “I don’t think he ever censors what he says. He apologized for it. I don’t think he meant it how it came across…You gotta have a sense of what’s right and what’s wrong.”
