The two rappers worked together in 2017 on Big Sean’s collaborative album with record producer Metro Boomin on a track entitled “So Good," and are set to release more music this summer.
There's no secret that Detroiters have a deep love for the expensive frames, and they are a huge part of Detroit culture.
Outsiders may not understand the significance, but Cartier glasses are a status symbol in the Motor City. They are so coveted that they have become deeply associated with crime — according to the Detroit Police Department they have been the cause of nine homicides, 17 non-fatal shootings, and 2,158 robberies between 2012 and 2016.
