Big Sean and Danny Brown‘s beef was over so quick, chances are you probably missed it. In separate interviews last week, the two Detroit rap stars traded insults (some more obvious than others) over their relationship with their troubled home city. But in a tweet made on Saturday (Aug. 10), Sean announced the pair had squashed their short-lived beef.


Let’s recap, shall we? Speaking to The FADER last week, Danny took some not-so-subliminal shots at how Big Sean represents The D. He landed extra digs by calling him “real spoiled” and claimed the people of Detroit don’t consider him a hometown hero anymore.

You listen to how I talk about Detroit, and you listen to how a rapper like Big Sean talk about Detroit, and it’s like we’re talking about two different cities. Which is probably true, because Detroit is that type of city — he went to the best high school in the city, you know, he probably was real spoiled or sheltered, so it’s like two different worlds. He can look at it and talk about guap, and we don’t have any.

[A lot of people in Detroit] say he from L.A. now. He ain’t been to the hood in years, and I wouldn’t either if I was him, to be honest.

When the G.O.O.D. Music rapper got word of Danny’s comments, he took the opportunity to defend his credibility in an interview with Hip Hop Nation. Sean didn’t address Danny by name, but his strong words let the world know exactly who he was talking to.

F–k whoever talking about Big Sean and don’t know nothing about Detroit or the streets of Detroit. 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. So if you ever talking s–t about me like I ain’t be up in the hood, n—a you crazy.

Yep, we’re definitely adding this to the pile of list of lamest beefs in hip-hop history.
