Sean Anderson, a.k.a. Big Sean, is the newest artist signed to G.O.O.D. Music/Island Def Jam. Sean was born on 25th March 1988 and is from Santa Monica, CA and relocated to the west side of Detroit, MI when he was 2 months old. He was raised by his mother and grandparents, who taught him to the values of working hard.
Big Sean attended the Detroit Waldorf School, a school of art, were he was introduced to a kaleidoscope of art and culture. He later attended Cass Technical High School where he furthered his music career, met life- long friends, and gained the support of fans and peers as he independently sold copies of his music.
Sean gained a strong relationship with 102.7FM, a local radio station in Detroit where he displayed his rhyming skills weekly. There, he met Kanye West after a radio interview in 2005 and got a chance to display his talent by freestyling for Mr. West, giving him a copy of his music and sending numerous tracks for him to critique. After months of submitting songs and numerous meetings, Sean finally got the call from Kanye West himself saying that he wanted to sign him. Big Sean officially signed to G.O.O.D Music in 2007 and then signed to Island Def Jam in 2008.
In 2011, Big Sean released his first album Finally Famous which contained the hit singles "My Last", "Marvin & Chardonnay" and "Dance (A$$)". The album featured a number of guest appearances from the likes of John Legend, Pharrell and Kanye West.
