Patience paid of big time for Louis Vuitton Sean. After years of being Kanye West’s virtual understudy, Big Sean stepped into the limelight and seized his moment. Sean first peaked the Hip-Hop world’s interest with “Get’Cha Some” from Yeezy’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape in 2007. A gang of the Detroit native’s own music, via his Finally Famous mixtape series, proved that the talent was there, and him letting anyone who listened know he invented the Supa Dupa Flow only reinforced his potential. But questions still lurked about him being able to deliver on the major label stage.
Sean’s debut, Finally Famous, featured production from No ID and spawned a bunch of hits like “My Last,” featuring Chris Brown, “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay,” featuring Kanye West, and “Dance (@$$).” The Def Jam rapper proved he was no one’s sidekick, even landing on the cover of The Source Magazine.
