Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter


Big-Sean-1Big Sean is an award-winning American Rapper from Detroit, Michigan who is the ultimate testament that being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people could change your life.  Big Sean has created numerous mixtapes, working with dozens of different artists, and released three albums since the inception of his career.  He has since received many nominations from Bet, MTV, Billboard Music Awards, and the Grammys, and even won several of those awards.  All of his success, however, can be attributed to a demo tape and a radio station lobby.

While Big Sean was in high school he created a valuable relationship with his local radio station, 102.7 FM, performing on their rap battle contest every week.  In 2005, Kanye West was doing an interview with the radio station.  Big Sean had gotten wind of this news through the connections he had made from his appearances in their rap battles, and rushed to the station with hopes of meeting West.  Almost blowing him off, West allowed the boy to rap for him and took Big Sean’s demo tape.  Two years after their encounter, Big Sean was signed to Kanye West’s label GOOD Music.

From there, he started releasing more mixtapes and eventually three albums.  Throughout those years, Big Sean not only signed with Kanye West’s label, but he also signed with Def Jam Records in 2008 and Roc Nation in 2014. After releasing his debut album “Finally Famous” in 2011, he was awarded the Best New Artist during the 2012 BET awards.

Being from Detroit, Big Sean lets his hometown and experiences influence his music.  In many of his songs you will hear him referencing the ‘west side’; he is talking about the West Side of Detroit.  Some of his most well-known songs are “Mercy”, “My Last,” and “Detroit”.  “Mercy” is the song that won the Billboard Music Awards Top Rap Song in 2013.

Although Big Sean has been working very hard on his third album, which released on February 24, 2015, he will be making the trip to Cancun for Inception Music Festival 2015!  He will be performing on Thursday March 12, 2015 at The City in Cancun.
