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.
