>Finally Famous 3Posted: December 28, 2010
Big Sean is an up and coming rapper who recently released the third installment of his Finally Famous mixtapes, Finally Famous 3. He has been signed to G.O.O.D. Music as well as Def Jam Recordings and lyrically is a possible mainstream ray of light in a world where to many people consider Lil Wayne and Drake some of the best alive. A highlight of the mixtape has to be his freestyle over Gucci Mane’s Lemonade, Supa Dupa Lemonade. Check out this line “I’m unusual as shit, I’m Super Bad your girl probably doodlin’ my dick”, that line just stuck out to me as particularly entertaining, but seriously, he’s good. Apparently when Kanye was being interviewed at a local radiostation he occasionally free styled at, he decided to just swing by and see what happens. ‘Ye was reluctant at first, but after hearing just 16 bars, signed him to G.O.O.D. Music. Big Sean has a new single with Chiddy Bang which is unbelievably fresh, musical grounds Xaphoon Jones had yet to cover in the Chiddy Bang companionship. The verse is wild, especially when halfway through a quick acousticish beat crashes in, leading into an insanely catchy sample from the musical library that is Xaphoon Jones. Check out Too Fake, as well as Big Sean’s mixtape. The mixtape features Asher Roth (who I personally think has been proceeding through the game like a fine wine, getting better and more lyrically diverse and introspective with age [Lupe Fiasco’s supergroup All City Chess Club is proof]), Drake, I’m rarely a fan of him, but hey it’s a sign of mainstream ascendence, Mike Posner, Tyga and Curren$y, who is another unbelievably original and fresh rapper associated with WIz Khalifa, a personal favorite of mine.
