Big Sean would leave his demo tape with Kanye, and this lead to him being signed with the label 2 years later.

Big Sean released his first official mixtape in 2007 called “Finally Famous”. The mixtape had a couple of underground hits like “Getcha Some” which got attention from the press. Magazines like The Source, and Detroit Metro Times covered the mixtape.
