Since the release of his first mixtape in 2007, Big Sean has been in the public eye as one of the most successful rappers from the class of "new-school" artists. Since then, he has released a total of five studio albums and headlined four tours that ran all over the United States. He also performed as one of the leading supporting acts for J.

As one of the main representatives of the Detroit musical scene, Big Sean remains a known presence all over Michigan, and his local pride is frequently reflected in his music.
Attaining the Long-Pursued Fame
When Big Sean, who is legally known as Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, released hit single "Get'cha Some" in 2007, he was immediately noticed by popular hip-hop magazines such as The Source and Detroit Metro Times. This is when the California-born rapper went on to capitalize on the success of his mixtape project and was soon signed to Kanye West's label, GOOD Music. A few years later, Big Sean released his debut album titled Finally Famous in 2011 and soon landed on the No. 3 spot of the US Billboard 200 as well as the No. 2 spot on the US Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Following the release of this widely popular album, Big Sean launched a nationwide tour that travelled through more than 20 states. Outside of his musical career, Big Sean is recognized and respected around Michigan as one of the most involved celebrities living in the area. A great testament to this is the fact that he has been a long-time proponent of resolving the Flint water crisis through personal financial donations as well as using his platform to raise awareness.
