Big Sean closed out an incredible year with a special concert in his hometown of Detroit on Friday. After hitting the road with J. Cole on the “Forest Hills Drive” tour this summer, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper saved the best for last with the “Finding Paradise” show at Joe Louis Arena last night. The sold-out show, benefiting the Sean Anderson Foundation children’s charity, featured plenty of electricity, captivating visuals, and unforgettable moments on stage with a few surprises.
After T R A P S O U L singer Bryson Tiller got the night started with an opening set, the 2-hour show saw Big Sean call on plenty of big names to join him on stage. DeJ Loaf was first up for “Try Me” and “Be Real,” as Sean’s childhood friend Mike Posner did “Smoke and Drive” and “Cooler than Me.” Jhené Aiko later made an appearance for “Beware” and Dark Sky Paradise‘s “I Know,” before Lil’ Wayne gave an explosive medley set of “A Milli,” “Rich as F*ck,” “Love Me,” “How Many Times” and “Deep.”
The loudest moment of the night was one for the books, as Emimen, Royce Da 5’9”, Danny Brown, DeJ Loaf and Trick Trick did their Motor City anthem “Detroit vs. Everybody” for the first-time live. “Detroit. This is the best day of my life, man,” said a tearful Big Sean. “You know, I’m at a loss for words, but I’m not ready to get off stage because I’m not ready for this to be over,” he continued, after closing with the emotional “One Man Can Change the World.”
