By now we all know that Detroit rap star Big Sean is no stranger to the city that raised him. Even after his rise to fame nearly eight years ago and countless hit records, the Grammy nominated artist continues to visit his hometown supporting events, artists and most of all the children.
Last Friday, November 6, 2015, Sean put on a megawatt charity concert in Detroit that was wonderful. With special guest appearances by Lil Wayne, DeJ Loaf, Jhene Aiko and Eminem, Sean not only gave Detroit the very best of him but also donated every dollar made on the show to the Sean Anderson Foundation, a non-profit organization started by Big Sean to support underprivileged youth in Detroit.
After such an amazing line up of performances and a very healthy donation to Detroit kids, one might say job well done and give it a rest. Not Big Sean. His commitment to Detroit’s children runs deep. The Detroit native was up bright and early at the 33rd annual Coats for Kids Radio-a-Thon sponsored by local Detroit hip-hop radio station FM98 WJLB, Metro PCS and the Salvation Army. Sean encouraged sponsorship from patrons to help purchase winter coats for Detroit Kids and spent the remainder of his time there hanging out, giving hugs and taking selfies.
It’s amazing to see Big Sean making such a great impact in Detroit communities.
