ALBUM SPOTLIGHT: FINALLY FAMOUS VOL. III MIXTAPE BY BIG SEAN

So I’m comin’ kind of late on this one. But judging by the name of his mixtape, just about everything in Sean’s life has been a long-time coming, so we’re guessing he won’t be too mad at us.

The 22-year-old Michigan native has been steadily grindin’ since signing to the Microsoft of music labels—G.O.O.D. Music monopolizing all the talent. He’s developed a considerably stronger presence since we first heard him on Mike Posner’s A Matter of Time classic mixtape, and Finally Famous showcases the gregarious MC’s charm, and lyrical ability, to the fullest.

Legitimately, this mixtape doesn’t have a weak cut on it. Whether it’s the brilliantly large melodies of “Too Fake,” accompanied by Chiddy Bang, or the slow-burning swagger of “Memories?” the tape can be played in all its dopeness from front to cover. Check out the video to “What You Doin?” and don’t be surprised if you’re smiling as big as Sean by the end.
