In between celebrating with his team, signing posters and showing sweet notes from his girlfriend and fellow musician Jhené Aiko, the rapper took a moment to share his genuine gratitude to his fans for all their support, and he even got a bit emotional over the journey he's taken to get to where he is.

The musician kept the festivities going all through the morning on Friday, and Detroit 2 was also trending on Twitter.

This isn't the first time he's made waves on Twitter. During press for the album, Big Sean made headlines when he claimed that his song "IDFWY" wasn't a diss towards his ex-fiancée Naya Rivera, who passed away in July after a tragic drowning incident while out on the lake with her son.

"I truly made the song and played it for her. She knew about it, and she liked it," he shared. "We had a breakup that was very public, and we were young and we forgave each other and moved on from that."

He continued, "If I would have known something this tragic would have happened, I would have never made the song."

Detroit 2 is out now.
