Big Sean Opens Up About His Mental Health When Recording Music For Detroit 2

Big Sean opens up about wanting to kill himself and overcoming depression in series of tweets. 

Big Sean’s new album Detroit 2 is out now and is poised to debut at the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. With the album projected to move 110k copies in its first week, The G.O.O.D Music rapper took to social media on Sunday evening (Sep. 7) to talk about the challenges he faced while making music for Detroit 2.

“I don’t feel like this currently, but I had never gone through wanting to kill myself, give up on my life until the past few years," he said.  "[A]nd I didn’t realize how important it was to embrace the ups n downs of life and enjoy (in joy) taking active steps to better it. it’s the Journey!”

"I thought doing what I loved would always make me happy and satisfied, so when I got tired of it, I was confused and it drove me insane. Later i realized I was just growing n had to gain a new mentality and foundation on many levels n re-discover my passion! And try new things.."

“That’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to learn how to do," he noted. "I pray if and when it happens to you, you just hold on to your faith! You may discover more passions if it’s meant to be as well. Not sure if we are only meant to do one thing in life, who knows for sure."

Sean, who also revealed plans of starting his own label talks about how he overcame his insecurities by learning to do things at his own pace.

He explained, "While I was working on me and figuring things out (still am everyday but I just mean while I was making the album) I was worried that it was taking too long, and adding extra stress to my life worrying if people will even still want to hear from me, but even then I still... I couldn’t rush it. I listened to God and myself for when the time was right. That’s one of the hardest things to do as an artist was be on my time, and not the time everyone kept telling me is right for me. I had to learn MY timing isn’t everyone else’s timing n that’s fine."
