Detroit’s native West-sider MC Big Sean has been listed on MTV’s Hottest MCs List. According to the announcement, Kanye West has had a major hand helping the rising rapper along to ‘fame’- his highly anticipated album, Finally Famous has recently dropped and features big names like Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown.
“The Detroit MC’s buzz is very real. He steadily built a huge following that transcended the average Web sensation. He also met the other Hottest criteria by clocking impressive sales numbers, having a sustainable impact on the streets, displaying unique style and spitting some pretty impressive lyrics. Then, of course, there are the intangibles. Sean was able to go into places like Atlanta (a city filled with eccentric rap talent like Travis Porter and Roscoe Dash) and the image-conscious Los Angeles and find out what works for them and make it fit him. He was also able to tag along with another famous fan of his, Wiz Khalifa, to tap into the Pittsburgh MC’s sizable Taylor Gang following.”
