Big Sean Debut LP Coming on May 3

Yesterday (March 3) Big Sean announced his debut LP, Finally Famous: The Album, is set to hit shelves on May 3 through G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.

Sean admitted he hasn’t completed recording the disc just yet but so far he has finished collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, No I.D. and Mike Posner.

He also mentioned that to build some hype for the release date he’s going to drop a mixtape with Curren$y and other artists.

As previously reported, Def Jam issued a press release last month saying the album was going to be released in March. The 2010 Freshman quickly phoned XXL to made it clear that was untrue.

The first single from Sean’s LP, “My Last” featuring Chris Brown, recently hit the airwaves. “I feel like that song really doesn’t follow any trends in music right now,” he recently told XXL. “It’s not necessarily a typical rapper thing to do, but what I like about it is that it’s feel good music. It’s fun and it instills a message to go out and do everything like it’s your last. I feel like that’s an anthem for when your on your way to the club, or in the club drunk as hell—or even whatever situation, just do it like it’s your last. It really set the tone for how the album is gonna be.”—Michael Naclerio

    Am I the only person who thinks him and Drake are the same person? I mean, other than Big Sean having better content and not singing, these dudes sound the SAME, and I cant listen to a Drake song for more than 30 seconds, so even with better production and slightly better lyrics, CAN’T listen to this dude.

      Thats because Drake admitted to using Big Seans flow. It sucks for Sean cuz Drakes name is bigger and he’s been doin it in the main light before Sean even got a chance. The reason I dont like Sean(who’s better than Drake) is because he sounds to close to Drake especially when he says “I Do It” lmao

  • yo swype

    Drake completly took Big’s style and flow but the masses know Drake better. Big’s been doing his thing before Drake came out with So Far Gone and Thank Me Later

    • mark

      the masses are idiots in this instance

      That’s what it sounds like. I know a dude on here said “nobody sounds like Big Sean”, but he must live in a cave under a rock, cause my sister watched that G.O.O.D. music cypher and was like “Does he sound like Drake, or does Drake sound like him?”. It’s pretty obvious, hell, throw J.Cole on a sound with both of them, and you can barely tell them apart.

    Nigga dropping it on my birthday, thats a special shoutout haha.
    Big sean is one of the nicest out there, we need to support the real.


    No one flows like Big Sean, esp Drake bc Drake uses the same damn flow every song. People love to draw conclusions w out proper support and evidence. Go compare songs before you post an ignorant comment like that. Big Sean about to change the game.. BOIII!! #FFOE
