A couple of days ago, Danny Brown sent some shots over to Big Sean about repping Detroit, and if you missed those comments, I posted them below. Just two days later in an interview, Big Sean had some words to say back to Danny Brown’s comments. Though I think we all know that Big Sean wasn’t really a thug, but I think we can agree that he was not from the best part of the world & has sense gotten out of it. Fast-forward to 6:55 on the soundcloud player to hear Sean’s comments.
You listen to how I talk about Detroit, and you listen to how a rapper like Big Sean talk about Detroit, and it’s like we’re talking about two different cities. Which is probably true, because Detroit is that type of city—he went to the best high school in the city, you know, he probably was real spoiled or sheltered, so it’s like two different worlds. He can look at it and talk about guap, and we don’t have any.
It’s funny, I don’t think of him as from Detroit. To me he’s just a rapper on the radio.
A lot of people in Detroit don’t consider him that either. They say he from LA now. He ain’t been to the hood in years, and I wouldn’t either if I was him, to be honest. It’s not a bad thing. I’m in the hood every day now, so I see the faces, I see the desperation. I have a studio now that’s five minutes from where I was born.
