Ever since Sean Michael Anderson snatched up a mike and spit some rhymes, this 23-year-old rapper from Detroit has seemed to be dropping hints about the enormity of his future plans.
He began by adopting the not-so-humble stage name Big Sean. He coaxed notorious egomaniac Kanye West into giving him a really G.O.O.D. record deal in 2007. And then he proceeded to release a series of mixtapes called Finally Famous, Volume[s] One through Three, which culminated earlier this year with his debut full-length album, titled, well, Finally Famous.
So it's no secret that Big Sean's aspiring to be the best-known spitter in the universe. And when he last rolled through the 305 for an outsized set at Best of the Best 2011, Mr. Anderson even shared a private premonition with New Times. "Just last night, I had a dream that I was in this hotel room sleeping," he told us. "And then I woke up, in my dream, and I opened the door and there were like 50 million cameras all coming at me. So I closed the door and I went back to sleep.

"Then I woke back up again and there was, like, a hot chick in my bed, which was quite nice," he laughed. "Yeah... That was my dream I just had."
It's called the lifestyles of the Finally Famous. And homie, it's no longer a dream. It's become reality.
