Rapper, Big Sean gave back to his hometown of Detroit by helping out at a back to school fair organized by the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. He was in the city to promote his new album, ‘Hall of Fame,’ but still managed to find time to give back, saying, “DPS [Detroit Public Schools] needs this more than anybody. Hopefully, this is just the first of many events we can do to… help give back.”
The rapper, real name Sean Anderson, was on hand to help hand out school supplies to students, saying, “My message [to kids] is just to stay focused on what your goals are and do as well as you can. And focus on what you’re great at and harness that talent.” He continued, “There are so many opportunities out here… I hope these kids, these young minds, take advantage of that and make it happen. They can be way better than a rapper, they can be way more successful.”
Big Sean has also recently launched the Sean Anderson Foundation to benefit young people in Detroit – good work, Sean!
