At last Big Sean’s LP, “Finally Famous,” has been released and it couldn’t have come at a better time. At the height of success for his hit single, “My Last,” fans are ready to hear what Big Sean is bringing to the table. Going from nothing to being one of GOOD Music‘s newest additions, Big Sean is showing everyone what Kanye West saw in him.
During his late high school years, Big Sean built a relationship with Detroit Hip-Hop station WHTD, where he would show off his skills every week through a rap battle. Fast forward to 2005, when Big Sean caught wind that Kanye West was doing an interview at radio station 102.7, he decided to go down to the station and was able to convince West to listen to him rap. Although West was really feeling Big Sean’s swag, he didn’t sign him until 2007.
Now, three mix-tapes later and fours years signed to GOOD Music, Big Sean has finally released his debut album. The album features artists like Wiz Khalifa, Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross and Pusha-T. And of course, the man that signed him, Kanye West, is featured on the single, “Marvin and Chardonnay.”
The album is full of club bangers, especially “Dance (A*$),” which samples MC Hammer. Along with some dance hits, the album has some singles for the ladies, including “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” where he raps about not having the perfect relationship. The album has a piece from each part of Big Sean’s life; from his love life, to his music career and his past, he expresses it all.
“Finally Famous” is available on iTunes and it’s definitely worth the money. I’d suggest buying the deluxe version because it includes extra songs along with the “My Last” music video.
This album is physical proof that Big Sean is more than just a baby face with mediocre rhymes. He really is “Finally Famous.”Tags: Big Sean, Finally Famous, GOOD Music Label, iTunes, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, MC Hammer, My Last, Pusha T, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa
