Big Sean has been going hard for his second album entitled Hall of Fame, which is due out some time this year. His new single “Switch Up” featuring Common is already getting major airplay and has fans early awaiting more new material. Big Sean is working with some of the best Detroit has to offer, like Eminem (who has been in hiding since forever), Royce Da 5’9″ and Kon Artis of D12. If you follow Sean of instagram then you already have a taste of what to expect. On working with Eminem, who Sean said invited him into the studio, he wrote: Today was historical. The finally famous rapper always goes hard for Detroit so we can only imagine what other surprises he may have in store for us.

As if conquering the rap game and putting Detroit back on the map wasn’t good enough, Big Sean is set to launch his own clothing line called Aura Gold. The fashion and lifestyle brand is set to debut later this week in Las Vegas at the ProjectMVMNT convention.
Big Sean said of his new line in a recent press release: “Even though I have a lot to learn about fashion and the industry, I do know what I like and the small details that make something stand out to me. I look forward to evolving the line with more colors, fabrications and offerings to show the other dimensions of my style progression over time.” Vibe will the first to reveal some of the pieces from the new line in its February/March style issue. The line will be comprised of T-shirts, hats, pants, sweatshirts, and jackets. No word of when it will be in stores, but I’m sure when it does arrive it will go fast.
Big Sean goes so hard for Detroit, whether it’s with his lyrics, clothing, comments, you know he is a “D-Boy”. To further his loyalty to the motor city, he’s teaming with Adidas Originals to release the “Detroit Player” limited edition sneaker. The shoe is a classic representation of Detroit with its red reptilian texture (yes, we love some Gator shoes), gold highlights, suede accents, and three stripes . Not since, Eminem debuted have we seen anyone as big as Big Sean in our city, but he is living proof that if you hold on to your dreams they will come true. Inside the shoe a message is written that says “I say I’m dreaming bigger than I’m living,” which is conformation to not be scared to go after what you want no matter how impossible it seems. Big Sean’s “Detroit Player” will be available December 1st, which is also the day he’s performing at the Palace of Auburn Hills; only 380 shoes have been made and will be for sale at Detroit’s Puffer Reds, so if you want to get on Big Sean’s level, you better start stacking some paper for this sneaker, I’m sure they will go fast.
While listening to the radio at work, the eight time Grammy award winning legend, and one of my all time favorite singers came on the airwaves covering one of my favorite songs “Lately” by singer turned actor Tyrese.
The song released this morning is a remake of Tyrese’s single “Lately” from his first album titled Tyrese that will be featured on Ms. Baker’s album set to drop this fall.
Because I stan for Anita, I decided to be nosey and in surfing the net I came across some mixed views from fans on the choice of Ms. Baker’s lead single after her 7 year hiatus. Check out the video below of the “Lately” duet between Tyrese and Ms. Baker and her studio version on the up and coming album in the link below.
