Big Sean speaks on performing at the BET awards, he tells the story on how he met Kanye West, why there isn’t any Kanye West production on Finally Famous, and why long-time collaborator Mike Posner wasn’t on the album!
After a few push backs and mixtape releases, Detroit Native Big Sean dropped his debut album ‘Finally Famous’ yesterday for the masses. A few years ago, he drove to a radio station in his hometown of Detroit and dropped a few bars for Kanye West which eventually led to a record deal. A short time later, he found himself performing in the Cipher at the 2010 BET Awards and this year he had the opportunity to grace the stage as an actual performer.
We caught up with Big Sean on the red carpet of the BET Awards this weekend and he shared with us his desire to make his grandmother proud as well as what it felt like to get approval from Kanye West. Kanye recently stated that Big Sean would one day be to rap, what Beyonce is to R&B.
