Celebrity Net Worth estimates Big Sean’s net worth at $26 million since signing with Kanye West’s GOOD Music in 2007, which is more than any other rapper. The “Deep Reverence” hitmaker has released five studio albums and sold more than 10 million copies of his discography globally, making him a multi-millionaire.
As a result of allegations that Kanye had neglected the work of his artists who were ready to release new songs, Sean and Kanye’s relationship hasn’t always been cordial. Even though working with Kanye has led to many creative disagreements and some less than shrewd business arrangements, Sean has taken matters into his own hands to avoid any financial troubles. He was born and raised in LA, after all.
His name is Big Sean and he was born on March 25, 1988, in Santa Monica to Sean Michael Leonard Anderson and a mother named Toni. When he was three months old, his family moved to Detroit, Michigan, where his mother, a teacher, and his grandmother, a WWII veteran, reared him. “Westside,” as Big Sean often sings, refers not to California’s, but to Detroit’s. He graduated from Cass Technical High School with a grade point average of 3.7.

Kanye was said to be impressed when West finally agreed to listen to him after first refusing. Big Sean started gaining a following in 2007 through the internet and a series of self-released mixtapes, while West was still working on his demo tape. Def Jam Recordings subsidiary GOOD music signed Big Sean in 2008. Big Sean and Drake collaborated on the song “Made” on April 30, 2010.
