About

Sean Anderson, p.k.a. Big Sean, is the newest artist signed to G.O.O.D. Music/Island Def Jam at the young age of 20. Sean was born in Santa Monica, CA and relocated to the west side of Detroit, MI when he was 2 months old. He was raised by his mother and grandparents, who worked steadfastly to instill in him the principles of hard work and determination. Sean attended the Detroit Waldorf School, a school of art, from Kindergarten to 8th Grade where he was introduced to a spectrum of art and culture. He later attended Cass Technical High School where he furthered his music career, met life long friends, and gained the support of fans and peers as he independently sold copies of his music. Sean gained a strong relationship with 102.7FM, a local radio station in Detroit where he displayed his rhyming skills weekly. There, he met Kanye West after a radio interview in 2005 and got a chance to display his talent by freestyling for Mr. West, giving him a copy of his music and sending numerous tracks for him to critique. After months of submitting songs and numerous meetings, Sean finally got the call from Kanye West himself saying that he wanted to sign him. Big Sean officially signed to G.O.O.D. Music in 2007 and then signed to Island Def Jam in 2008. Sean has two mixtapes under his belt starting with “Finally Famous–The Mixtape” [Nov. 2007] and “UKNOWBIGSEAN–Finally Famous Vol. 2” [Spring 2009]. His hit single “Getcha Some” vastly took over the internet and created major buzz for the artist and quickly solidified him as a breakout star. The single first debuted on Kanye West’s “Cant Tell Me Nothin’ Mixtape” giving him the exposure needed to showcase and introduce his talent to the world. Big Sean is scheduled to release his debut album entitled “Finally Famous” in Fall 2009. The album features Hip Hop stars such as ten-time Grammy Award-winning artist Kanye West, Pharrell, The Dream, and many more. Big Sean has been spotted beside Kanye West all over the world including Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Hawaii, etc. To stay connected to Big Sean and to get exclusive music and videos, check out his official website WWW.UKNOWBIGSEAN.COM

    Who make that superman sweater you have on in a lot of the pictures? Old or whatever, I need that!

  12. Hi,

    I came across your website, absolutely love it Sean. I was interested in exhibiting a feature article on my urban brand Vanilla Pink clothing(www.vanillapinkclothing.com) and its launch. It would be good to get a feel of how people across the Altlantic feel the UK’s answer to the Urban movement.

    Let me know your thoughts please.

    Background Synopsis:

    Vanilla Pink’s journey began in 2006, its founders two influential figures on the UK Urban scene had a vision to create a movement they coined ‘Funk Shui’, a belief in the artistic freedom of expression and an interest group that motivates individuals to strive for success and enjoy the fruits of life.

    As the phenomenon that is ‘Funk Shui’ gathers pace, a journey that began in London, now crosses territorial and cultural boundaries, we call on those before us to help spread the message of originality.

    Kind Regards

    Onkar

    What’s up Big Sean. My name is Austin Robinson, but I go by the mononym Ace. You seem like a real cool dude and real as hell, so could you check out some of the songs I did, (I rap, and sing) and give me some feedback for them, like tell me what I should do to improve as and aspiring MC. I would really appreciate it, if you did, and maybe I could spit with you one day

    YO Big Sean. Man your music, swag, life story is great and inspirational. I listen to your music daily and just get help from the lyrics from your songs. Man at my school i be like “my favorite rapper is Big Sean, yall better watch out man he gone be big.” They be like who dat nigga he sound lame. So i let them listen to Finally Famous 3 and they fucks with you. Man i tell people everyday about your music and more and more people get inspired. By the end of this year my whole high school gone know who you are. Im a senior now and ive been making music since 2005 but been playing music my whole life man. Im goin to Winston Salem State University for music business. Im going to be big one day and i know it but no one believes me. We need to colab one day man. Remember this name Dallas Jordan from North Carolina, Siler City. Hit me up

  36. Outstanding article not to mention very easy towards understand explanation. How do I just do receiving permission towards submit part of this article with my future news letter? Giving suitable consumer credit rating back to you typically the author not to mention link in the web site would not be considered trouble.

  37. Love It! Keep up the good work.
