Biography
Born in California but raised in Detroit, rapper Big Sean made big news in 2007 when he signed with Kanye West’s then-recently formed label, G.O.O.D. Music. Sean had met West through a hip-hop radio station in Detroit. He was just trying to impress the superstar by displaying his freestyle skills, but after Sean’s in-studio performance, West offered him a recording contract and helped set up his debut mixtape, Finally Famous Vol. 1, released in 2007. A second volume arrived in 2009 with a third following in 2010. A year later he would issue his official debut, Finally Famous: The Album, featuring the single "My Last" with special guest Chris Brown. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart. Hall of Fame followed in 2013 with Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Nas, and Miguel all on the guest list. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
