Back in June of 2010 the folks at G.O.O.D. Music had the ambitious plan of releasing three albums on the same day. September 14 was going to see Kanye’s fifth album, Kid Cudi’s sophomore effort and the debut of Big Sean. While that obviously did not happen, Big Sean is now on deck.
According to Y2KDaily the Michigan native is scheduled to release his debut Finally Famous: The Album on May 3rd via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam. The album will feature Pharrell Williams, Mike Posner and of course the big homie Kanye West. His Chris Brown-featured, No I.D.-produced single “My Last” is out now.
May 3rd will see the 23 year old emcee going up against some of Hip Hop’s most respected veterans. With Pete Rock & Smif-N-Wessun, Large Professor & Neek The Exotic and the Beastie Boys all slated to drop albums that day.
