Who's Next? Pt. 5: Big Sean

Big Sean brings to the game, a charisma and energy that is completely unique. Born in Santa Monica, CA but repping Detroit, 'Sean' got his big break when he had a chance meeting with Kanye West. As the story goes, Big Sean worked hard on establishing a relationship with local Detroit hip hop station 102.7 FM. One day 'Sean' heard that Mr. West was at the station for an interview, so he made his way over there to see if he could pass his demo off to him. Due to his relationship with the station, they let him in to speak to Kanye, and he freestyled for him. Kanye left impressed, and in 2007 he signed with West's G.O.O.D. music record label. Big Sean has since signed with Island Def Jam, which needless to say, is pretty official.

Earlier this year, Big Sean graced us with his Mick Boogie hosted mixtape, U Know Big Sean- Finally Famous Vol. 2. It's a dope mixtape, and was hot enough to earn himself a spot in the "Who's Next" series. He is incredibly talented and has the lyrics and personality to become of the brightest stars in Hip Hop.
