Breaking Through in 2011
Big Sean still may not finally be truly famous, but 2010 was a hallmark year for the G.O.O.D. Music emcee as he dropped his long-awaited Finally Famous Vol. 3 mixtape and walked side by side with Kanye West through the Good Friday series. It's doesn't take Nostradamus to predict that 2011's lined up to be a very, very big year for Sean (no pun intended), and with the support of DJBooth's readers, how can he fail?
Let's be real. There was no shortage of skeptical glances cast Diggy Simmons' way when we heard the teenage son of the legendary Reverend Run was launching a rap career...and then we actually heard the young man rap. Be it nature or nurture, Diggy's got some undeniable skills on the mic, and with the backing of some very powerful folks he's a safe bet to make major moves in 2011. When we look at Diggy Simmons, we might just be looking at rap's next big star.
