After the release of his much anticipated album "Detroit 2", Big Sean called into the Angie Martinez show to talk about the album, working with Nipsey Hussle on "Deep Reverence", Chadwick Boseman + more!
"Detroit 2" comes 8 years after the first tape in the series dropped. This time around Big Sean has enlisted a TON of artists to appear on the tape as features and interludes such as Travis Scott, Stevie Wonder, Eminem, Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign, Post Malone, and of course the late great Nipsey Hussle.
Speaking with Angie about working with Nip and having conversations with him about self care, Sean explained how Nip was just on a different level of thinking than everybody else and that he was taken from us way too soon:
"Me and him definitely talked about taking care of ourselves, you know Nipsey was a thinker and I feel like he was going up not just in his craft but he was just radiating more and more and spreading more knowledge and becoming more aware of things and I don't know if thats why God called him back, It feels like he was gone to soon but he was someone who was elevated."
A few years back there were some rumors and talk about Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar having some type of beef, most of which was never addressed or talked about by either parties but it was Nips passing that brought the two back together as Sean reached out to the Compton rapper and when they spoke it there of course was no beef, just love.
"It wasn't even really a beef it was kinda an internet type of made up thing but the energy started becoming so big it started to feel like there was something going on between us, for him to be him and what he does and I know his mindset is on positivity like mine is, I sat next to Punch who works with Kendrick and he asked me if I reached out to K Dot and this was after Nip passed so I reached out to him and the mutual respect me and K Dot have for each other is kings respecting kings and brothers respecting brothers"
The passing of Chadwick Boseman has affected all parts of the industry in some ways, sharing with us that he and Chadwick were actually close friends early on in his career Sean watched his rise to fame and of course like the rest of us was shocked when he passed away:
"I wake up and brace myself for tragedy on so many days, with Chadwick that was so heartbreaking I knew him, he used to come to my crib and my shows. I remember when he was having a hard time and the work wasn't steadily coming through. After one of my shows he told me he was booked to play Jackie Robinson in "42" and I didn't see him too much after that and on a roll and probably dealing with cancer and I had no idea, it just goes to show you never know what someone is going through and you gotta respect them and talk to them like their going through the worst but still wishing them the best"
