It is what it is, Big Sean is a star in this rap game. Hailing from Detroit, Big Sean has proven the city is full of stars outside of the Shady Records camp. In 2011, Kanye West allowed Big Sean to jump into the game for G.O.O.D. Music. While the remainder of the roster released albums, Big Sean simply played the role of background player.
Big Sean hit the ground running, with “My Last” being released in January 2011. Chris Brown, in the midst of a comeback, was on the hook. The single helped establish Big Sean and was a string in several hits that restored Chris Brown to prominence. Since then, Big Sean has not looked back, Finally Famous was a strong debut and there was already talk of a sophomore album.
However, with the delay of Cruel Summer into the fall and the promotion behind it, Big Sean was unable to release Hall of Fame in 2012. Instead, like J. Cole, Big Sean will release his sophomore disc early in 2013. During his interview with Rap-Up TV, Big Sean spoke on what he plans to accomplish on this album and when it will be released.
