Sure, it might be a little premature to package your debut record as Finally Famous, but to our delight the 20-something rapper from Detroit, MI., is actually pretty promising. He’s got some big A-list artists on his debut record including [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chris Brown[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Drake[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pharrell[/lastfm].  But how did this junior go from selling mixtapes, telemarketing to commanding respects from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm]? His story may just inspire you to think of Biebz inspirational message, “Never Say Never.”

While at SXSW, our friends at MySpace caught up with Big Sean and chatted about his special encounter with Kanye West, getting signed to G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam Records and his SXSW performances.

Produced by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]NO I.D.[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] and the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Neptunes[/lastfm], Finally Famous is a big-time debut record for an up-and-coming artist. But until we see the release of his debut record on May 3rd, 2011, check out a sampling of his music below.

What do you think of Big Sean? Do you think he’s go what it takes to be famous?
