Big Sean Celebrates His Rising Icon Status
As if becoming finally famous, having a gold single, headlining tour and legions of fans isn’t enough, Big Sean was recently crowned a rising icon. To celebrate, the G.O.O.D. Music protégé took over New York’s Good Units at The Hudson Hotel and commanded the crowd’s attention as he performed I Do It, Ass and Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay. Neither Chris nor Kanye were present, but even better Sean’s mom and brother were at his side.
Also in attendance was Atlanta-based MC Future and R&B crooner Miguel, who warmed up the stage with All I Want Is You prior to the Detroit rapper’s arrival. The three artists were among past honorees including Marsha Ambrosius and Ryan Leslie who enjoyed passed hors d’ oeuvres and specialty cocktails a la Grey Goose.
Not a bad a bad way to kick off the third season if you ask me.
