then planned another one to give a prelude to his first studio album, "Finally Famous".

Kanye assisted Sean in this album and so did a number of great names such as Nas, Pharrell Williams, Kid Cudi and Wiz Khalifa. The lead single is called "My Last" and features Chris Brown's vocals. The full set was finally unleashed to the market on June 28, 2011 and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Look man, I did this song back in February. I listened to the song with her. I went back and changed a couple lines. I did that just cause I'm an artist. I don't rap about what I'm going through, that's not authentic. That song aint no diss song," he said.

"IDFWU" went on to become one of the biggest songs in 2014. It peaked at No. 11 on Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 1 on ...
