Big Sean is perhaps one of the most likely rappers in the world. He is certainly a fan of his hometown of Detroit.
Graduate Cass Tech, along with his mother, Myra Anderson, has been returning to Detroit on a regular basis in one way or another since the early days of her career. Whether through a partnership with Adidas that has included a studio in its alma mater, or the Sean Anderson Foundation that donates gifts throughout the city all year round, rapper GOOD Music enjoys to do good to others.
“I’m going to go back and get it right, do it the right way,” he said in a roundtable discussion with reporters earlier in the week. “Doing it in a way that makes a difference not only looks good. We need to make a real difference and change the lives of some people and give them opportunities to get better and go further. ”
When asked to join McDonalds for the Black & Positive Gold Mentors program, he was as strong as the multinational conglomerate. “I saw how much they wanted to be part of changing someone’s life and changing the lives of others … they wanted to be so involved and building the Black community, I just wanted to ‘respect him,’ he said.
“Because a lot of big corporations are always like that, they tend to do things very superficially, the minimum, but I got the opposite. So I’m really, really, really happy, and happy to be a part of it. ”
McDonalds introduced Sean to his mentee, Nyla Lewis – a Michigan woman who wants to pursue a music career.
In their mentoring session, the Grammy-nominated rapper gave advice on leading the music industry. Nyla was also amazed by a computer powered by professional music editing software, and gave another counseling session with digital producers of Rock, Nation, and artists, courtesy of Big Sean, McDonald’s and its licensors.
Nyla said the experience has inspired and brought her closer to a dream she has had since elementary school.
At the roundtable event, Big Sean talked about how being part of the counseling program was important to him especially among coronavirus pandemics.
“The message I would like to leave is, in a year like ours, where we have lost so much, not only are we losing family members, loved ones, heroes , images, premature. We also lost a lot of our freedom to travel the world or be able to move and some of us lost jobs, some of us lost jobs, some of us lost our whole lives. And when I say life, I mean, you know, work all my life, ”
he said, “When you go through those times, and you understand, okay, where in a time like this, you have to wonder, like, is this a cocoon and we’re ready to come out of it and being bigger, brighter and brighter, and an elevated version of ourselves. We got to understand that. When things like this happen for a reason, what is the reason, and perhaps the reason is to explore the interior space a bit, to see what things you always wanted to do. ”
Encourage Old People to take the rest of this time to make changes in themselves for the better.
“The changes you wanted to make in your life, the habits you wanted to set, the habits you wanted to break, because, maybe this is your time to do that,” he said. , “And we’ll never have time for this again, maybe, I don’t think so. I think once this is over this will go down in history, and we will look back on, you know, 30 40, 50 years from now, and our children and grandmothers and children, children to write reports about. ”
He said, “I think you stay strong, you take care of yourself, you get yourself right. And that’s what I’d just say (to anyone who listens) you know, be, be strong and get your life together, man. Keep playing around and get your life right. ”
