Big Sean is Finally Famous


Byline: Fundi Ndlovu[1]


After three mixtapes that vastly took over the internet- G.O.O.D Music?s latest success, Big Sean is finally famous. At 23, Sean?s collaboration with Chris Brown, ?My Last? reached number one on the Billboard Hip Hop charts. And he has just begun.

Big Sean?s released his debut album entitled ?Finally Famous? in June 2011. The album features Hip Hop stars and ten-time Grammy Award- winning artist Kanye West, Pharrell, The Dream, John Legend, Chris Brown and many more. ?Marvin and Chardonnay? , a song from his debut album featuring Kanye West, gained international recognition after trending worldwide on Twitter in June 2011.

After meeting and displaying his talent by freestyling for Kanye West after a radio interview in 2005, numerous mixtapes full of tracks enough to impress Mr. West for a call back followed. Mr. West signed Big Sean in 2007 to G.O.O.D Music and was later signed to Island Def Jam in 2008.

At its best, ?I Am Finally Famous World Tour? conveys how Big Sean’s charismatic talents have evolved through his mixtapes. The song ?Memories? has a pleasant melodic sound featuring the notable pianist John Legend as a great example of Big Sean recapturing his success from mixtapes.

This album features top charting artists such as Wiz Khalifa in the song ?High? with Chiddy Bang. Lupe Fiasco is also featured in the forth hit track ?Wait for me? .

Sean also talked about respecting his Hip Hop elders, particularly Tupac Shakur, from whom he adopted the Rolex pinky ring style. “You’ve got to do that [revere older artists like Tupac]. You’ve got to be legendary,” he said. “I wanna be what [Tupac] was to me to this new generation. 

Sean explained that his greatest musical achievement so far was to return to his native Detroit to receive the key to the city.

Big Sean?s official tour DJ Mo Beatz has gotten together with Adidas to present Finally Originals which is an exclusive remix of Big Sean?s album Finally Famous. This album has been put together to coincide with Sean?s I Am Finally Famous world tour.  It features original production by Bei Maejor, The Olympicks (MMG), Dj Ac Slater, Xaphoon Jones, Cardo, Drumma Boy, Filthy Rockwell, KeY Wane, Dj Bonics.
