Big Sean celebrates one of the most momentous events in his storied career, the 10th-anniversary re-release of his seminal debut album FINALLY FAMOUS. It is available today – as it was on June 28, 2011 – via Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music/Def Recordings. The re-release includes the new song “Freshman 10 Freestyle”. The new track has an accompanying video which is a salute to Sean’s XXL Freshman Class of 2010. Today, Big Sean is a Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist who is nowhere close to done.

The critically acclaimed FINALLY FAMOUS netted multiple multi-platinum singles.  “Dance (A$$) Remix” featuring Nicki Minaj, “My Last” featuring Chris Brown, and “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” featur­­ing Kanye West and Roscoe Dash all were major hits. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rap chart. This was a formidable opening week for a world-class superstar.

Big Sean is already a legend!

Significantly, the RIAA platinum FINALLY FAMOUS was the first of Sean’s five official albums to debut at #1 Rap, followed by Hall Of Fame in 2013.  His landmark RIAA double-platinum Dark Sky Paradise (2015) and I Decided (2017) and Detroit 2 (2020) would all go on to debut across-the-board at #1 on the pop, R&B/hip-hop, and Rap charts.  Twenty88, Sean’s 2016 collab with fellow G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam star Jhené Aiko, also debuted at #1 on the Rap and R&B/hip-hop charts.

Big Sean is one of the most decorated artists of the last 10 years. His peers who shared the cover with him have seen success but only J. Cole and Wiz Khalifa are comparable in terms of commercial success. Sean is in an interesting spot now and it is going to be dope to see how he pivots after Detroit 2. Lastly, in the eyes of many, he is already a legend. Everything he does now is just icing on the cake.
