Download Mp3 Friday Night Cypher Big Sean Taps Eminem Royce Da 5’9″ Tee Grizzley Sada Baby Boldy James & More
Last night marked the release of Big Sean’s Detroit 2, and nowhere does the album’s title manifest more than on the standout posse cut “Friday Night Cypher.” Featuring a vast array of the D’s finest contingent of emcees, the roster alone likely had many instantly kicking off the project with track nineteen. Clocking in at nearly ten minutes, the song features the joint forces of Tee Grizzley, Kash Doll, Cash Kidd, Payroll, 42 Dugg, Boldy James, Drego, Sada Baby, Royce Da 5’9, and Eminem — not to mention a variety of different beats, brought to life by the production talents of Key Wane, Jay John Henry, Helluva Beats, and Hit-Boy.
Though each rapper boasts their own distinctive vibe, the song’s dynamic nature allows them to shine under their own terms. Despite its ambitious nature, “Friday Night Cypher” remains a brilliant showcase of generations of Detroit’s expansive rap scene. In all likelihood, the standout verse will be a topic of discussion around the watercooler, likely coming down to a matter of stylistic preference.
