Detroit rapper Big Sean, named Best New Artist at the 2012 BET Awards and GQ's “hottest rookie,” is gearing up to deliver his highly anticipated sophomore album, 'Hall Of Fame,' (G.O.O.D. Music / Def Jam). His debut album, 'Finally Famous,' (released June 2011), the #3 Soundscan debut that inagurated Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music joint venture with Island Def Jam Music Group was well received by critics and fans alike and put the Detroit rapper on the map. His career has exploded over the last year and a half, with over 2.4 million Facebook fans to date, over 3.3 million Twitter followers, 66,000 MySpace friends, 65,000 YouTube subscribers, and more than 38 million YouTube views.

After several years as a member of the Duffle Bag Boys, the artist 2 Chainz has had unprecedented career resurgence. Not only has his debut album, "Based on a TRU Story" been number one on the Billboard charts, his presence in the industry has made him the hottest and most sought after rapper in Hip Hop today. Currently on his first solo world wide tour, 2 Chainz's story is one that confirms that tenacity, hard work and a strong belief in ones self can most certainly ensure success.
