Big Sean learned a lesson going into making his latest album “Detroit 2.” Sean thought that countless hours in a studio would equate to being successful.
“I was in the studio all day, I used to be like, I’m going hard,” he said. “But really, sometimes I would be in the studio all day just forcing it as opposed to really being in there ’cause I was inspired. I used to think that the amount of hours you put into something translates into it being successful, but really, it’s not about that. It’s about working smarter.”
Sean also struggled with his public persona and personal life, at times he’s remained silent on issues due to public criticism, however, he’s since learned how to balance himself in his public and personal lives.
