After six years, rapper Big Sean is ‘Finally Famous’


Big Sean has been making his way to the top of the rap game, scorching the scene with mix-tapes and countless hits.
He has come a long way since 2005, when he met Kanye West and has released a total of three mix-tapes. This year he was nominated as Best New Artist at MTV’s Video Music Awards. Now, he is signed to G.O.O.D. (Getting Out Our Dreams) Music, along with label mates Common, Kid Cudi and John Legend. He continues to gain respect.
He released his debut album “Finally Famous” on June 28. The album landed at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. The album has 16 tracks and many producers and collaborators. Artists on the album include Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West.
The Detroit native made waves with his lead single of “Finally Famous — “My Last.” The song is loaded with punchlines and the beat makes you want to move. It also features great guest vocals from Chris Brown that give the song an extra kick.
Big Sean’s second single, “Do It,” was an instant hit with the Hip-Hop community. The song displays Big Sean’s skills with hot lines and an even hotter delivery. The new album makes the young emcee stand out and enlarges his fan base.
Now here’s what the two of us think individually about “Finally Famous”:
Adrian Nelson: “Marvin & Chardonnay” featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash is a song that “pops” because of the beat and hook. The collaboration adds a twist of deliveries and rhyme schemes. The song was also ranked No. 1 the week of Oct. 8 on the Hip-Hop/R&B charts on
Alex Toris: I feel that the album shows his improvement and progress as he enters his new phase of fame.
Big Sean is a great artist, arguably one of the best in a long time. I listen to the album occasionally. and it seems to never get old. No song sounds the same or have the same feel, so this gives the album variety of his talent.
NELSON & TORIS: We give the album an 8 out of 10. Every track is worth listening to. Big Sean’s great songs make the album a hit.
The “I Am Finally Famous,” tour will stop in San Francisco on Nov. 22. For tickets, visit
