No question, Big Sean is Finally Famous. After being on my (and Hip Hop’s) radar for over two years now (since the release of 2009’s UKNOWBIGSEAN) to being a couple weeks away from his Def Jam/G.O.O.D. Music debut, the journey to being a rap star finally seems within arm’s reach for the 23-year old Detroit-raised emcee. Always known as a braggadocios and cocky rapper, Sean has seemed to turn a lot of heads lately with some more personal material. In an attempt to keep the gears moving, the album’s next single, So Much More is seeing the light of day (it will be released digitally on June 14). Produced by No I.D., the very soulful, autobiographical record is something reminiscent of material heard on the debut of Sean’s mentor, Kanye’s College Dropout. After four minutes of his signature sound, Big Sean drops a little humility into the record and gives you a different perspective on the potholes and pit stops on his road to success. Finally Famous The Album (finally) drops June 28….boiiii!
