Description

Finally Famous: The Album on CD

22-year old Sean Anderson started rapping as a 12-year old at the progressive Waldorf School in Detroit. In high school, he and a friend formed a duo, then entered and won the Friday Night Cipher MC contest at hip-hop radio giant Hot 1021. The win earned them a spot to rap live on-air every Friday night for nearly a year. It was on one of those Friday nights around 2005 that Sean encountered Kanye West (back in the Late Registration era) who agreed to hear the teenager's freestyle. It was the contact of a lifetime, which led to Sean's signing with G. O. O. D. Music in late 2007, and his subsequent signing to Del Jam in 2008. 'I remember in the eighth grade I told myself, man I'm going to be signed to Del Jam,' says Sean. 'I always put it out into the universe and I think it was written for me. I was meant to inspire people, I was meant to make music. There's been so many nights where instead of going out I've had to work and was depressed so I feel like I deserve this. This is what I was meant to do. ' Big Sean's career has gone into overdrive since October 2010, when he appeared on the BET Awards telecast, after earning New Joint status at 106 & Park two months earlier. Also in October, his most recent G. O. O. D. Music mixtape was issued, Finally Famous Vol. 3: BIG, hosted by Don Cannon. BIG, which has received over 650,000 downloads to date, spun off a slew of video clips including What U Doin (Bullshotting) (over 1 million views on #1 music site VEVO), Supa Dupa Lemonade (over 1. 5 million views on YouTube), Too Fake (featuring Chiddy Bang, over 1. 3 million views on YouTube), Ambiguous (featuring Mike Posner), and Memories (released two weeks ago on Complex.com). Sean was also featured on 5 tracks off of Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Recording Sessions; 4 of which were part of the G. O. O. D Friday Campaign and the 5th See Me Now is featured as a bonus track on the album.
