Big Sean Previews 'Finally Famous' with Kanye West, Kid Cudi & More

Big Sean has been working non-stop since he spit 16 bars to his mentor, Kanye West at Detriot's Hot 102.7 FM WHTD radio station in 2005.

Fast forward to six years later and a "Finally Famous" mixtape trilogy. Yesterday (June 7), Big Sean previewed his upcoming debut album, "Finally Famous," in NYC, before a crowd of hip-hop aficionados, label execs and artists such as DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Estelle, and 'Ye.

"What Beyoncé is to R&B, Big Sean can be to rap... And I apologize for being late, I had a throne to watch"

Before jumping into the first track, "Intro," of "Finally Famous," Big Sean humbly thanked his mother, close friends and industry support. "It's a story of a kid that followed his heart," Big Sean said of "Finally Famous," before he caught himself getting emotional.

"Finally Famous," is heavy with No I.D. production and includes features by Chris Brown ("My Last"), Lupe Fiasco ("Wait For Me"), Wiz Khalifa ("High" - greenery anthem, of course), The-Dream ("Live This Life"), and more.

Three favorites are "Don't' Tell Me You Love Me," his next single, "Marvin & Chardonnay," featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash and " Dance (A$$)," which samples MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" and is sure to be a club-anthem.

Sean closed the listening session by previewing bonus tracks from the iTunes/Amazon exclusive deluxe version of "Finally Famous," with tracks, "What Goes Around" and "Celebrity," featuring Dwele.
