The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the plans of artists throughout the music industry, but Big Sean intends to proceed with the release of his Detroit 2 album.

In an interview with The Rap Pack podcast, the Def Jam rapper confirmed he’s not waiting for things to settle down before dropping his fifth studio LP.

“Honestly, I deal with so many other people when it comes to putting an album out,” he said. “Especially when you on a label and all these things.”

Another factor in Sean’s decision is the constantly evolving outlook on when society can return to some normalcy. The fight against COVID-19 is filled with uncertainty, which is why the Motor City MC doesn’t wanna be stuck playing the waiting game.

“We heard different timelines,” he explained. “People like, ‘It’s only gonna last few … It should be up by this time in April.’ And then it just keeps expanding, right? So, you hear things about how streams are down and all these things, but I also believe in making music for a cause — for a purpose — to heal, to help, to inspire.”
