London, Sep 17 (PTI) Big Sean said Kanye West helped him in building his career in the music industry after they met in 2005.

The 29-year-old rapper has credited the “Famous” hitmaker for his success and for helping him break into the music industry, reported Billboard.

During their meeting Sean asked Kanye, “‘Can I rap for you?’ He (Kanye) told me I had 16 bars. I ended up rapping for 10 minutes and it changed my life.”

Sean was then signed to Kanye’s record label GOOD Music two years later.
