Big Sean Tickets
While he was born in California, Sean Michael Anderson didn't grow up there. He spent his youth in Detroit, a city rich in hip hop traditions in which the future Big Sean would take part. Sean would first receive some attention thanks to rap battles sponsored by Detroit hip hop station WHTD. In 2005, he heard Kanye West was visiting the station, and, in a rather Hollywood moment, Sean went over to meet him and managed to impress West with a freestyle rap.
It took two years, but West signed Big Sean to G.O.O.D. Music. Sean didn't release an album immediately, but his first mixtape, Finally Famous Vol. 1, arrived in 2007. The mixtape earned positive reviews and raised Big Sean's profile with increased mainstream media attention. Volumes 2 and 3 of the Finally Famous mixtapes arrived over the next few years. The tapes featured a who's-who of young hip hop talent as well as some established names.
More of those established names joined Big Sean on his debut album. It suffered some delays, but the album dropped in summer of 2011. Also called Finally Famous, it featured Big Sean with names like John Legend, Lupe Fiasco, and the man who signed him, Kanye West. The album peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 and topped the US Rap Album chart. It provided Big Sean with two big hits, "My Last" and "Marvin & Chardonnay," the latter featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash.
With a history in rap battles, Big Sean is no stranger to the stage and performing to impress the crowd. His shows have all the energy you'd expect from this veteran Detroit hip hop star. Be sure not to miss this experience and see him live.
