Big Sean – Detroit 2, Lil Durk – The Voice or 6ix9ine – TattleTales?
The battle ground is set for these three rapers dropping album tomorrow 4th September 2020
Intro: Detroit 2 is Big Sean’s fifth studio album. It is the sequel to Sean’s September 2012 mixtape, Detroit. It follows Sean’s February 2017 album, I Decided., and Double or Nothing, his December 2017 mixtape with Metro Boomin.
On March 25, 2019, his 31st birthday, Sean purged his Instagram and posted a series of videos in which he discussed his life and some of the mental struggles he has experienced. Later that day, he posted a snippet of a track that is tentatively titled “More Thoughts.”
Four months later, on July 24, Sean dropped the album’s first promotional single, “Overtime.” Two days later, he released “Single Again,” and on August 26, he released “Bezerk.” None of these singles appeared on the album.
On October 15, Entertainment Weekly published an interview with Sean in which he detailed the album’s creative process, unveiled track names, themes, and lyrics, and revealed some of the artists featured on the album.
On October 29, Angie Martinez conducted an interview with Sean in which he further discussed the album. In this interview, Sean confirmed that the album was not titled Don Life, despite rumors claiming it was. These rumors were started due to the artwork for “Overtime.”
On January 3, 2020, after Coachella unveiled its lineup, Sean alluded to the album being released before his April performances at the festival:
Guess I got a good deadline for the new album now? @coachella
On January 14, YK Osiris posted an image of himself posing with Sean in which the album’s title and tracklist were partially (and likely accidentally) revealed.
The album’s title was subtly confirmed at the beginning of Big Sean’s “Hot Ones” interview, which was released on March 19, 2020.
Sean officially announced the album’s title when he released an album trailer on March 25, his 32nd birthday.
On August 23, Sean unveiled that he had finished recording the album. On the next day, he revealed the LP’s release date and artwork.
Two days later, Sean released the LP’s lead single, “Deep Reverence.” He released the album’s second pre-release single, “Harder Than My Demons,” on August 31.
On September 2, Sean revealed the album’s tracklist via his social media platforms.
The Voice is Chicago rapper Lil Durk’s sixth studio album, set to be released on September 4, 2020. It follows his May 2020 album, Just Cause Y’all Waited 2, which also received a deluxe version the following month, in June 2020.
Durk announced the album on Instagram on August 28, 2020.
TattleTales is the upcoming sophomore studio album from 6ix9ine. The album was confirmed via 6ix9ine’s official clothing store and it’s set to be released September 4th.
6ix9ine dropped his first single since being released from prison, “GOOBA”, on May 8, 2020, along with its music video. Though “GOOBA” was released independently, 6ix9ine is rumored to release his sophomore studio album through 10K Projects. Rumors have circulated that he signed a $10 million deal with 10K that included two rap albums, one in English and one in Spanish.
The second single. “TROLLZ,” featuring Nicki Minaj, was released on June 12, 2020, along with its music video. It was going to be released on May 29, but was moved to Friday, June 5, due to scheduling conflicts. The release date was moved once again due to the death of George Floyd. On June 11, he confirmed in an Instagram post that it would be released on June 12, and that he would go live on Instagram at 11 P.M., along with new merch on his website.
The third single, “YAYA,” is 6ix9ine’s second Latin record and was released on July 3, 2020, along with its music video. The track was first mentioned on 6ix9ine’s Instagram story where he revealed the release date, later confirming the title as “YAYA” and previewing the song in an Instagram post on June 29.
