Big Sean dropped the bomb tonight, announcing that his next mixtape “Detroit” will be dropping September 5th. In a short Twitter address to his fans, Sean catches everyone up to speed on his busy life. as an artist:
“We been working hard, everyday for the past 8 months and I can honestly say that me, my label, my team are more than excited how my new album sounds. It’s everything I want it to be n more.

What does G.O.O.D. Music mean to you?
John Legend: It starts with the name itself. We want to be known for quality. We want to be known for stuff that we all can be proud of. That creativity, that attention to detail, that quality control—that’s what distinguishes us from other folks who might just be chasing a hit. Kanye picks artists who care about making great art. We all want to make money and do well, but we also want to make great art that’s important and interesting.
Here’s an exclusive behind the scenes look at G.O.O.D. Music’s Complex photo shoot!
Damn! How’s this for a hot collaboration to kick start your weekend? Even with the rain you can’t be unhappy when a track with Big Sean and Mac falls on your ears. These guys have hinted via Twitter in the past they had done some work together but this is the first time I’ve seen a full track with just the two of them. Another great new jam of the summer. Big Sean has a mixtape, sophomore LP, and a hand in Cruel Summer the G.O.O.D. Music collaborative all due to drop relatively soon.
The massive track off of the upcoming GOOD Music collaborative album featuring the man everyone wants a verse from, 2 Chainz now has a video to go along with it and it’s quite the spectacle. Awesome in it’s simplicity, but still with some dope cars and stunning visuals.
I’ve always thought Kanye West was a talented and creative story teller. Earlier this week, Kanye reveled that he will be releasing a 26 minute film titled, “Cruel Summer.” The film was written, produced and directed all by Mr. West. The premiere went down at Cannes on Wednesday night. Even though the film was not part of the film festival, Kanye premiered it in the parking lot of a nearby casino! “Cruel Summer” is centered around a car thief who falls in love with a blind Arabian princess. The princess’ father will not let them marry unless the car thief cures her blindness. The film was inspired by a Middle Eastern story called “Antar and Alba,” which is similar to “Romeo and Juliet.” The film features Kid Cudi, who plays the car thief, Big Sean and comedian Aziz Ansari. We’re still waiting for more release details. Check back for updates!
