Kanye West was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He left college to pursue a musical career, producing tracks for Jay-Z while polishing his demo. He released The College Dropout in 2002. It sold 2.6 million copies and won Best Rap Album. His follow-up releases have been equally successful and West has become a celebrity famous for his outrageous and entertaining statements.
His parents divorced when he was three. He was raised on Chicago's South Side by his mother, an English professor, and spent summers with his father, an award-winning photographer who became a church counselor.
West graduated from Polaris High School and completed one year of art school at Chicago State University. After spending time rapping and working with local artists, West moved to New York in 2001 to pursue his music career full time. Respected rapper Jay-Z hired him to produce songs for his album The Blueprint, which sold more than 420,000 copies in the first week alone. West went on to produce for a handful of stars including rapper Ludacris and singer Beyonce.
While serving as producer to the stars, West cut his own demo and began shopping it around. He signed a deal with Roc-A-Fella Records, Jay-Z's label, in 2002 and began recording in the studio.
Big Sean’s career has exploded in the last 2 years since the release of his debut album ‘Finally Famous.’ In addition to being recognized by GQ Magazine as 2012’s ‘Hottest Rookie’ and picking up honors at the 2012 BET Awards for ‘Best New Artist,’ Sean most recently received double Grammy nominations for his collaboration with mentor Kanye West for “Mercy” which also featured G.O.O.D. Music / Def Jam label mate Pusha T and 2 Chainz.
With over 2.9 million Facebook fans to date, over 3.9 million Twitter followers, over 85,000 YouTube subscribers, and more than 46 million YouTube views worldwide, the Detroit MC has been in overdrive since 2007, when his Finally Famous: The Mixtape was first issued, followed by Finally Famous Vol. 2: UKNOWBIGSEAN (2009), Finally Famous Vol. 3: BIG (2010) and most recently Detroit (2012) which was certified “Diamond” by host DatPiff with over 1.6 million downloads.
His debut major label effort, ’Finally Famous’(released June 2011) made an impressive #3 Soundscan debut in the U.S., inauguratingKanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music joint venture with Island Def Jam Music Group. Rolling Stone gave the album 3½ (out of 4) stars, and USA Today gave it 3 (out of 4) stars. The New York Times declared “the fun is contagious,” and used the words “clever,” and “confident,” to describe the best-selling record. Sean subsequently came in #5 on MTV’s “Hottest MCs” List of the Year, boosted by his MTV VMA nomination for Best New Artist. A slew of BET awards nominations last year included Rookie of the Year, CD of the Year (for ”Finally Famous), and both Best Hip Hop Video and Track of the Year (both for “My Last”). ’Finally Famous’ spun off a triumvirate of crossover hits by Sean that drove album sales for most of 2012: the RIAA gold “My Last” featuring Chris Brown (#1 Rap, #4 R&B, #30 Hot 100 on the U.S. charts); the RIAA gold “Marvin & Chardonnay” featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash (#1 R&B, #4 Rap, #32 Hot 100 on the U.S. charts); and the RIAA double-platinum “Dance A$$ (Remix)” featuring Nicki Minaj (#2 Rap, #3 R&B, #10 Hot 100 on the U.S. charts).
Pusha T was born in The Bronx, New York City but soon relocated to Virginia Beach, Virginia where he and his brother were raised. In 1992 Terrence and his brother Gene formed the duo now internationally known as Clipse. With help from Pharell Williams the group eventually signed to Elektra Records in 1997 and released Exclusive Audio Footage, their only album under that label.
Of the two brothers, Terrence was more open to features, appearing on Kelis' 1999 single "Good Stuff" and Nivea's 2001 single "Run Away (I Wanna Be with U)", respectively. In 2004 he and his brother launched their label Re-Up Records and formed hip hop group the Re-Up Gang along with rappers Ab-Liva and Sandman. After four albums as the Clipse, under various record labels both Malice and Pusha T announced that they were taking time off from the duo to focus on their own respective solo projects.
