Finally Famous Vol. 3: BIG is the title of the third official mixtape by the American rapper, composer, producer, and singer Big Sean.[1] Released as a free online download, it was released by Kanye West's, G.O.O.D.

The mixtape features several other artists, including Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., YG, Drake, Asher Roth, Mike Posner, Tyga, and Curren$y.
