He's got the keys, keys, keys
No matter where he goes or how much success he gains, Big Sean never forgets where he comes from. He’s always repping his hometown Detroit, crediting the city (and his mom) for his upbringing. Plus, he’s always giving back to his community (like the time he raised $100,000 for kids affected by the Flint water crisis), developing many programs with his Sean Anderson Foundation.
Now, the city is returning the love to Big Sean. Just Saturday, the “Bounce Back” rapper was given a prestigious award by the mayor of Detroit. According to Sean, the award recognized him for motivating the city through his music and creating a music class that will soon be added to Detroit schools’ curriculum.
Twetny-nine-year-old Big Sean was given the key to the city for “inspiring Detroit youth” through his philanthropic work.
Mayor Gives Award
Sean was given the key by Michael Duggan, the mayor of Detroit. Mayor Duggan shared the good news with the Twittersphere: “The work that @BigSean is doing with his foundation is inspiring Detroit youth to achieve their dreams.” He tweeted the two photos above, showing Sean receiving his award.
Sean Thanks Mayor
Sean then took to his own social media platforms to express his gratitude. He retweeted Mayor Duggan’s tweet with the caption, “Thank you Mayor Duggan for the Key to the City of Detroit. I know how big of an honor this is! Thank u!”
Things got real heartfelt when he took his words to Instagram…
