Big Sean Replies To Claims Regarding Being Around The Hoods Of Detroit

Big Sean calls everyone who thinks he's not around Detroit hoods "crazy."

Inevitably in the careers of successful rappers is the questioning of whether they are actually from the areas they represent.

Big Sean has been at the butt of claims throughout his career of whether he is actually from a place of struggle in Detroit or not. Recently, in an interview between Detroit native Danny Brown and The Fader, Brown said many people from or who live in Detroit don't consider him from the area. He also said Sean "Probably was real spoiled or sheltered" as a child.

Perhaps it was Danny Brown's comments that sparked Big Sean's latest retaliation but in an interview with Hip Hop Nation, Sean wanted to make sure listeners heard his latest attempt at confirming he's been around the poorer area's of his hometown.

"Fuck whoever talking about Big Sean and don't know nothing about Detroit or the streets of Detroit," Sean proclaimed when unprompted during the interview. "I be in there. Matter of fact, not only do I be there and be in the hood, I be helping the hood and giving back to the hood."

"I'm the only one out of ya'll rappers or even new rappers who was paying for Thanksgiving dinners last year, buying Christmas gifts," he continued. "So if you ever talking shit about me like I ain't be up in the hood, nigga you crazy."

It's unclear if Big Sean's comments were specifically aimed at Brown but his latest rant comes only days after The Fader interview was published.

      Every Artist is going to have their own perspective on their city, I'm from BK, I came up listening to Black Moon, they wasn't flashy like per se Biggie and Jr. Mafia. Everyone is going to rep they city from their own life perspective, maybe he had a silver spoon and don't know the struggle, don't hate on the kid because of the cards he was dealt.

    The only reason why rappers from detroit are calling him out is because he's commercial. Most detroit artists are diversified in subject matter and content and Sean sounds like an artist from the south. Bottom line - its very hard to make it in Detroit and he probably didn't make it through its local scene.

      he is also corny, rhymes are a little to kanye westish but unlike kanye, he does not know how to cover up some of that with great samples, hooks, and beats

      ^^^ He's talking from his own experiences hahaha.
  • cliff
    First, who cares where you from? Tt's where you at. Second, giving out turkeys on Thanksgiving and Christmas gifts at Christmas is NOT giving back to the hood....
  • sam snead
    He is from Detroit, plain and simple. It really does not matter where your from really, it depends on what you can or are willing to do. I think Kimbo slice proved that by getting his ass whooped. 2-pac: "was a nice middle class n*gga, but nobody knew the evil he do when he got a little bigger", now that being said Big Sean went to the nice high school in Detroit, where most of your class is going to college, jack white,lilly tomlin, and kwame kilpatrick all went there as well along with other famous detroiters. He also probably stayed in the house at night.

    One thing that always confuses me about these authenticity claims, be they true or false, is how rappers end up *needing* to back it up. I mean, can't you just look at his school record and see where he went for high school etc? Check and find his/her address (which I'm sure somebody wrote down at one point). I mean, how hard is that exactly?

    I'm not a Big Sean fan, but if you have a nigga repping your hood, and at the same time, he's giving back to that hood, then just shut the fuck up and let him be, at least he's paying correct homage and not just using it to sell his music. Like I said, I'm not a big fan, but I will check out his album.

Gucci got a scholarship in high school and went to college so he aint this super gangsta u think he is.
