Big Sean is ready to make a comeback in a healthy and more conscious way, after serving fans with his new album ‘Detroit 2‘ featuring guest appearances from the likes of Eminem, Jhené Aiko, Nipsey Hussle, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Dwele, Anderson .Paak, Wale, Young Thug, Hit-Boy, Travis Scott and many others.
The G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam Recordings artist has promised new music soon during a conversation with with Ebro on Apple Music centered around his non-profit foundation, the Sean Anderson Foundation which has has been working on with his mother and promoting for the past month through a series centered around mental health awareness.
“I embraced the growth and all of that, but I also don’t want people to get it f***ed up that I really can, that the bars are still 100% there. I don’t want people playing with my name for sure. From 2017 to 2020 I was doing a lot of stuff for myself so my last album was me getting back into my groove. I don’t think I need a longer break like that anymore. I’m gonna keep going with the music and like I said we have some new music on the way now. But it’s a different level of just… consciousness to it, that’s all.”
Since the start of May, Sean and his Mum has been sharing videos every Saturday, the 10-15 minutes long episode, the son and mother would hold candid conversations about mindset, sleep/circadian rhythms, meditation, diet/exercise and the emotional freedom technique (EFT).
“I’ve been doing that with my mom. It was actually her idea because she been with me throughout the whole pandemic at my crib, and she sees the stuff that I have applied to my everyday life that helps me get through and helps me stay productive, stay inspired, stay active,” the rapper said. “Some of the stuff she’s taught me, some of the stuff I’ve learned on my own. But she was just like “Yo you gotta put people onto this, you gotta use your platform for not just music and all of that. She kept bugging me about it, it just made me be like… let’s just do it. Might as well just put the information out there for the people that can use it.”
“It’s really just health, bro. It really needs to be just like how they teach us about STDs and sex in health class, they need to make sure they teach us about how to deal with anxiety or how to breathe properly and all of that. It all should be together, because it’s all connected. It’s not like the head is separate from anything, it’s all together.”
