About this video
Welcome to From the Napster Vault, a look back at splendid Napster TV videos of yore. Today we've got our summer 2011 chat with rapper Big Sean, who took part in our inaugural Napster Radar series on up-and-coming artists we love. (A few weeks later, his debut album, Finally Famous, hit no. 3 on the Billboard charts.) Here, he talks about growing up in Detroit, and how he convinced Kanye West to sign him after accosting the superstar emcee at a radio station. Enjoy.
