Big Sean is finally famous.
The past two years has been GOOD to the young talent with the BIG release of his debut album, Finally Famous (2011), an album that spawn the popular tracks ‘My Last’ featuring Chris Brown, ‘Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay’ featuring his boss Kanye West & Atlanta rapper Roscoe Dash, and lastly ‘Dance (A$$)’ [RMX] featuring Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj. The album so far has sold over 351,000 copies in the United States and Sean has been on a successful tour since the release.
In 2012, Sean join with his G.O.O.D. Music label mates to drop a compilation album entitled Cruel Summer on September 18th. The album grossed over 205,000 sales in its opening week with the help of their hot singles‘Mercy’ and ‘Clique’, two songs that both features verses from Big Sean.
Sean was also featured on pop singer Justin Bieber’s track, ‘As Long As You Love Me’, ‘Til I Die’ with Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa, and a couple others…. Like I said, the last two years has been GOOD to Sean!
Big Sean released a new mixtape not to long ago called Detroit (a mixtape I’m currently listening to) on September 5th that was well received by the fans and the hip-hop community.
On the fashion front, Sean collaborated with Adidas for their All Original campaign. This collaboration is no surprise because the men of G.O.O.D. Music are usually well dressed.
During the Canada leg of his “Finally Famous” Tour, Big Sean announced the name of his sophomore album and the month of its release while jamming with his fans in Montreal.
