Big Sean’s absolutely stacked posse cut “Friday Night Cypher,” which highlighted the city of Detroit, has left the masses floored.
For one, it highlighted how infrequent posse cuts of this nature have become. Not only that, but it served to bridge the gap between different generations of Detroit’s finest emcees. While some might have whipped out some outlandish theories beforehand, it’s unlikely anybody fathomed seeing Eminem rapping alongside Tee Grizzley, Sada Baby, and Kash Doll over a Helluva beat. Especially given some of the histories between a few of the contributing emcees, a fact Sean himself acknowledged following the song’s release. Yet as he explains, some movements run deeper than petty issues, and here the results speak for themselves.
