Early Life and Family
Sean Michael Leonard Anderson was born on March 25, 1988, in Santa Monica, California to Myra and James Anderson. When he was three months old, he moved to Detroit, Michigan, where he was raised by his mother, a school teacher, and his grandmother. Anderson’s grandmother, Mildred Leonard, served in World War II, and was one of the first ever black female captains in the United States Army. He attended the Detroit Waldorf School and graduated from Cass Technical High School with a 3.7 GPA.
2005–2006: Career beginnings
In his later years in high school, Sean showed his rhyming skills on a weekly basis as part of a rap battle contest held by Detroit hip-hop station WHTD. In 2005, Kanye West was doing a radio interview at 102.7 FM. Hearing about this, Sean headed over to the station to meet West and perform some freestyle. Initially West was reluctant to hear him, however, he gave Sean 16 bars to rap for him. According to Big Sean, West enjoyed his freestyle: “As we get to the entrance of the radio station … we stopped in the middle of the doorway. He starts looking at me and bobbing his head.” After the freestyle, Sean left West his demo tape. Two years later, West signed Big Sean to GOOD Music. Sean has cited West, Eminem, The Notorious B.I.G., and J Dilla as his influences.
2007–2010: Mixtapes and internet following
On September 30, 2007, Big Sean released his first official mixtape Finally Famous: The Mixtape. His hit single, “Get’cha Some”, produced by WrighTrax, attained media attention and led to articles in The Source and the Detroit Metro Times.

The mixtape includes 20 tracks.
An unauthorized leak of his collaboration with Drake, called “Made” made its way onto the internet on April 30, 2010. In an interview with TheHipHopUpdate.com on May 1, Big Sean expressed his disappointment over the leak, calling it an unfinished version both musically and lyrically. Big Sean’s official Facebook page confirmed that his debut album Finally Famous & Consequence’s Cons TV would be released on September 14, 2010.

According to Amazon.com, Big Sean’s Finally Famous was delayed by a week, with a tentative release date set for June 28. Big Sean revealed the cover art for his G.O.O.D.
