I'm neither a huge fan or hater of Big Sean, so I was skeptical when I listened to this; but, considering he is signed to G.O.O.D. music, I thought I'd check him out. Big Sean has been compared to the likes of Drake & Cudi for his sound and flow. This album is solid all the way through, with a couple of great songs and then some decent to good songs. Considering the producers were Kanye West & No ID, this had to have some bright spots.

1.) "Intro"
This is basically describing the feeling of finally being famous, hence the album title. This is a feel good song and it basically gets you inside the head of Big Sean and kind of share the life with him for a minute. Nothing more to say here, just a solid opener to "Finally Famous."

2.) "I Do It"
This was the first single from the album. This isn't one of my favorite tracks on the album, but I like the way it showcased Big Sean's metaphoric rhymes and wordplay. This is a pretty comical song as well, mentioning the likes of Family Guy's Quagmire, using the word "Giggity".

3.) "My Last" (feat. Chris Brown)
This is the song that has gained the most publicity and radio plays from the album (considering it has Chris Brown). The chorus is very catchy and this is a very good "club track". The lyrics aren't bad at all, in fact, they are better than I expected with a type of theme like this. "My Last" is just about living life to the fullest. Good track here.

4.) "Don't Tell Me You Love Me"
This is one of the tracks were I could easily mistake him for Drake. The hook just sounds way to similar to him. With that being said, this is a very relate-able song, touching on the "women problems" subject.

i've been a big sean fan for a long time & i think he did a good job on this. the people saying it didn't meet their expectations... what were you expecting? it was his debut ALBUM, which means it is mostly meant to showcase his style to people who don't keep up on mixtapes & internet released singles; for people who are probably going to be hearing him for the very first time (we all know marvin gaye & chardonnay is going to blow him up & create a million new big sean fans). i became addicted to his stuff from early mixtapes & features on bigger artists songs, why would i want him to "change things up" or "try something new" right now ? maybe in a couple years if he is still doing the EXACT same thing i'll be a little disappointed but definitely not now. with this album, i wanted more of the same big sean i already had & that is exactly what i got :)

the songs themselves, are what you would expect from him & i mean that in a good way. he has the ability to use weird combos of beats & change his flow during songs which you see in "dance (a**)" probably one of, if not my favorite song on this album. i'm very surprised at how many people didn't like this song, it's so different & innovative

Well after Drake publicly stole this man's rhyme style and went mainstream with it (Supa Dupa Flow), Big Sean has been stumbling around the underground trying to create a new style and carve out his own lane. After releasing his much acclaimed yet mostly uneven Finally Famous mixtapes, his debut is finally here and definitely delivers. I was one of those people that liked Big Sean. He can rap and he made good songs but I never considered myself a "fan". However, after hearing this effort I felt compelled to purchase this man's album.

Even though he is possibly the rapper with the softest voice maybe ever (zero bass!)...the boy can rap very well. He is the closest thing to a punchline rapper this side of the mainstream but its delivered in an organic way. He just has bars and bars and bars within the context of the song. As far as pure rapping talent...he might even be a great rapper. The album has a few missteps such as when he tries to tackle the strip club scene on Dance. That's clearly not the direction he should be going. Wait For Me ft. Lupe Fiasco is surprisingly contrived and weak and uncomfortably soft.

Big Sean does his best work on slower soul influenced beats such as Memories, My Last, Live This Life and So Much More. The bonus tracks are all pretty well done as well. Production is top notch as this is a mainstream release from G.O.O.D. music, the lyrics are definitely on point, and the songs for the most part are extremely enjoyable. Overall, Big Sean has delivered a great debut album. If you were wondering...it's leaps and bounds better than Wiz Khalifa's "effort" released earlier this year. I picked that comparison because that was the closest release from his "class" of this new generation of rappers debuting for the mainstream. Nonetheless, Finally Famous is worth checking out and is recommended. 4 Stars.

Big Sean's debut effort Finally Famous ends up being one of the pleasant surprises in the rap world in 2011. Executive produced by Kanye West with most of the tracks produced by standout hip-hop producer NO ID, Finally Famous is a fine entrance into the music industry for the twenty-three year old MC. A mix between midwest rap, mainstream, and the "stream of consciousness" rap that characterizes Drake and KiD CuDi, Big Sean has great potential in the crowded rap market. If anything, promo single "My Last," featuring Chris Brown should have been evidence enough of this.

An intro opens the album with some notable fanfare, featuring light-sounding production work courtesy of acoustic piano patch and strings; a `warm, fuzzy' feeling is the effect, something that seems contradictory to rap. Sean establishes himself through his agile rhymes on the intro, which segues into a completely opposite sounding NO ID helmed cut, "I Do It." "I Do It" finds the MC masterfully playing with words and establishing a rousing swagger about himself. His most clever rhyme might be rhyming "cranium" with "titanium" - though the context is questionable! "I Do It" precedes the exceptional collaborative effort "My Last" with Chris Brown, who is perfectly suited to sing the hook. The cut is simple in scope; it is an ode to partying and having fun as if it is the last time to do so. NO ID handles production work once more and allows the artists to yield some grand results. The chorus is incredibly catchy by Breezy: "And I'ma hit this drink up like it's my last/I'ma hit this night up like it's my last... Swear I'ma do it like I never had it all, all, all...
