Sean gained a strong relationship with 102.7FM, a local radio station in Detroit, where he displayed his rhyming skills weekly. There, he met Kanye West after a radio interview in 2005 and got a chance to display his talent by freestyling for Mr. West, giving him a copy of his music and sending numerous tracks for him to critique. After months of sending songs and multiple meetings, Sean finally got the call from Kanye West himself saying that he wanted to sign him! Big Sean officially signed to G.O.O.D. Music in 2007 and then signed to Island Def Jam in 2008. To stay connected to Big Sean, check out his official MySpace at WWW.MYSPACE.COM/UKNOWBIGSEAN for exclusive updates that you wont see anywhere else.
