Sean Anderson aka Big Sean is one example that a bit of luck and perseverance are the keys to success. Born on March 25, 1988, Sean hailed from Detroit and had been rapping since his youth. Long story short, he had a weekly show at a local hip-hop station called WHTD when he was in high school. He would also take part in rap battle contests held by the station.

His change of fate came in 2005. Sean at that time was doing a telemarketing job which paid poorly when he heard from a friend that Kanye West was at the 102.7 FM station. He dashed to the place in hope to meet the famous rapper and used his special relationship with the station's staff to allow himself in.
