Before signing with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music, Big Sean practically signed on the dotted line with Eminem’s Shady Records.

The Detroit native, whose real name is Sean Anderson, participated in a rap battles as a teenager and explained in a recent interview:

“Before I met Kanye, I did a rap battle. I used to battle rap. I was real popular, that’s how I got this really good relationship with this radio station where I met Kanye at. They were doing this battle rap to where the prize was $10,000 and a single deal from Shady Music, like Eminem and all them.”



After sneaking his way into the contest that he wasn’t old enough to participate in, he made it to the finals and almost won.  “I got all the way to the final round and lost to some dude,” he stated. “I really thought I won, but I think the crowd was more on his side, so I lost. But DJ Whoo Kid and them was like ‘Man, we gon’ keep in contact!’ Obviously, they didn’t.”

“Whoo Kid is my homie for life, so it’s all good,” he said, then continued on to say “G.O.O.D Music was a perfect fit so I couldn’t be happier.”

Big Sean is currently preparing for the summer release of his debut album Finally Famous on June 21st.
