Growing up in Detroit, the album is an accumulation of how he feels about his city. He takes concepts about Detroit and transforms them into music. In every track, you can hear the love and passion he has.
Anyone that grew up in Detroit can recall the unfair treatment we’ve received for years, in media, etc.
But people are starting to realize what we’ve always known: Detroit is full of amazing, talented people. #Detroit2 is a beautiful ode to the city, and it’s right on time.
