Big Sean loves the kids. After serving as principal for the day at Bates Academy in Detroit back in June, the rapper has offered support to youth in the whole city.

Yesterday Sean and his mother, Myra Anderson, donated backpacks to a couple of Detroit public schools as part of the second annual “Back to School Giveback.”

“I grew up in this city, just like all of you,” Sean reportedly told the students. “We have something special about us that no one else has: We were built tough. We’re strong. We’re resilient, and we can overcome anything. So when you grow up to achieve your dream careers, and begin to travel around the world, proudly represent Detroit.”

For the event, the “Maps” MC  and his Sean Anderson Foundation teamed up with Office Depot and the Office Depot Foundation to donate 3,500 backpacks full of school supplies.
