Big Sean


After freestyling for Kanye West outside a Detroit radio station, Big Sean was on his way to becoming rap's new adventurous voice of fabulousness. He signed to West's G.O.O.D Music in 2007, Def Jam in 2008 and released two mixtapes "Finally Famous–The Mixtape" and "UKNOWBIGSEAN–Finally Famous Vol. 2" before releasing his debut album Finally Famous in 2011. The album spawned three hit singles, "My Last," "Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay" and "Dance (A$$)." The rapper’s sophomore LP Hall of Fame dropped in August 2013, spawning hits like “Guap” and “You Don’t Know.” Two years later, he hit No. 1 with the LP Dark Sky Paradise, which housed the hits “IDTWU,” “One Man Can Change the World” and “Blessings.”
