bigsean200 Summer 2011: 5 Albums To Look Out ForAfter being well-received in the mix tape circuit, Detroit native and G.O.O.D Music recording artist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Big Sean[/lastfm] held a release party for his debut album, Finally Famous, in New York City on June 7th. If you didn’t know, Big Sean performed a freestyle for Kayne West outside of a Detroit radio station and the rest was history.

You can visit Amazon to see the complete track list, but the album is to include features from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chris Brown[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Wiz Khalifa[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lupe Fiasco[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pusha T[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pharrell Williams[/lastfm] just to name a few.

There will also be four bonus tracks included on the LP and production from the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Neptunes[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]No I.D.[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]WrighTrax[/lastfm], and more. Kayne West sang his prodigy’s praises during the album release party, saying:

I believe Sean’s story is one of the most amazing ever because he literally got signed off of a freestyle. I feel like he could be like what Beyoncé is to RnB, he could be that to rap music.

We hope you’re right Mr. West, because we will be listening.
