Twitter Believes Big Sean Should Be On The 2010s Rap Mount Rushmore

Twitter is going crazy deciding who is the fourth rapper on Mount Rushmore.  This Mount Rushmore list is for rappers that dominated the 2010s.  On Twitter, there is a photo of Mount Rushmore with Drake, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar faces in three spots.  Rap fans placed Big Sean’s name in the last spot.  Considerably, Tyler the Creator or Future are put on the ballot for the last spot.  The 2010s was a great time for hip hop, there are a few artists that can take that spot.

The Case for Big Sean

Big Sean’s debut album “Finally Famous” came out in 2011 and debuted at #1 on the charts with three songs going Platinum including “Dance” featuring Nicki Minaj.  He follows “Finally Famous” up with “Hall of Fame” in 2013 securing another #1 album on the rap charts.  This album includes the hits “Beware” with Lil Wayne and Jhene Aiko and “Guap”.  “Dark Sky Paradise” is Big Sean’s first album to be #1 on the BillBoard 200, Billboard Hip Hop and R&B, and BillBoard Rap charts.  This album is home to “I Don’t Fuck With You” featuring E-40 and Blessings with Drake and Kanye Wes.  From 2014-2015, the airwaves couldn’t get enough of these two songs.  Big Sean does it again on “I Decided” going #1 across all charts with “Bounce Back” being the signature song.

The Detroit product in between albums also dropped an amazing mixtape.  “Detroit” dropped in 2012 winning Best Mixtape at the BET Awards in 2013.  In my opinion, it should have been an album.  Before releasing “I Decided”, he teamed up with Jhene Aiko and the lovers came up with “Twenty88”.  The project reached #1 on the Billboard Hip Hop and R&B chart and Rap chart.  The following year, he also joined forces with Metro Boomin for their “Double or Nothing” tape.  I can see why many people would like to see Big Sean’s face in the Mount Rushmore.  He was working all decade!

Detroit Love

Last month Big Sean brought out Mike Posner during his Coachella performance.  Both from Detroit, Sean and Posner worked with each other often when they were first getting started.  Big Sean even knows Mike Posner’s late father as he shouted him out on stage while Posner shared a video for the audience.  The video epitomizes their friendship with clips from backstage shows to recording sessions with each other. Mike credits Sean with allowing him to believe in himself.  Big Sean capped the performance off by performing his hits like “Dance”, “My Last”, and “I Don’t Fuck With You”.
