Big Sean released his fifth studio album, ‘Detroit 2,’ yesterday. It was led by the singles “Deep Reverence” featuring the late Nipsey Hussle and “Harder Than My Demons.” This project contains 21 tracks in total with other appearances by Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, and more.
There were three skits on Detroit 2 provided as stories from Dave Chappelle, Stevie Wonder, and Erykah Badu as well. Sean did a new interview with Apple Music 1 and explained how the Chappelle collab came about. Sean noted that Chappelle being a fan of Sean’s father helped make it happen.
“He was like, ‘I love your dad, man. I love your dad,'” Sean said. “And I was like, ‘What?’ He was like, ‘Bro, I love your dad.’ Actually that was the first thing he said to me. I’m like, ‘Yo, what’s up.’ He’s like, ‘Yo, I love your dad, man.’ And then he said, ‘Yo, I’m a big fan.'”.
“But that’s when I was like, ‘Oh, shit.,'” added Sean. “So when I told Dave I was working on the album for Detroit, he was like, ‘Bro, not only will I do the skit, I’ll come out and do a show with you. You know, I’ll come out and support you just ’cause I believe in you.’ So I appreciate him for being on that level of humility still when he is who he is.”
On “Story By Dave Chappelle,” Chappelle also said he saw Sean’s father at the Fillmrore in Detroit and he gave a pep talk that “only a dad could give.” He added that this made him feel wonderful as a man.
