Big Sean is Finally Famous and he sure deserves it. If you’ve never heard of him he’s basically a cross between Fabolous & Lil Duval, but his sound is one of a kind and he has big names like Drake using his flow (but at least he gave him credit).
The Def Jam signed artist was born in Santa Monica, but raised in Detroit & is possibly the most talented rapper to come out of the Michigan area since Eminem. Sean was discovered a few years ago by Kanye West at a local Detroit radio station where he would rhyme weekly to get exposure. After that, Kanye played the role of his mentor for a while until 2007 when personally called up Sean and had him sign with G.O.O.D. music.
He’s collaborated with artists like Mike Posner, Chiddy Bang, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and now most recently, Chris Brown.
Big Sean’s debut album Finally Famous Volume 3 is officially being released June 21st so be sure to check it out!
Listen to the remix Sean did of one of my favorites, Adele’s ‘Hometown Glory’ & then check out one of his originals, ‘Supa Dupa Lemonade’.
BTW, someone needs to make a ‘Hometown’ about Miami..anyone? ;)
