Big Sean, Migos and More Rap With Second Graders
In the famous words of KRS-One, "You must learn." Big Sean Migos, Ice Cube, Ty Dolla $ign and Lin-Manuel Miranda recently helped spread that sentiment to a class of second graders via rap, with the assistance of Ellen DeGeneres.
The TV-show host worked with North Carolina teacher, Michael Bonner, who penned a remix to O.T. Genasis' single "Push It" into the more kid-friendly "Read It" for his class of young students. DeGeneres set up for the entire class to film a video for the song, which, to the group's surprise, had Sean Don doing a cameo.
In the clip, Sean pops in the classroom dropping bars like, “Reading helps us learn information for school/So we can answer questions and we can be cool.”
As the video continues, the aforementioned entertainers show up to help push the message forward with pro-education lines.
In other Big Sean-related news, the Detroit MC's new album I Decided. recently landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking the second time he has reached the top spot. The first time was his 2015 album Dark Sky Paradise.
I Decided. moved 151,000 equivalent units in its first week out, with 65,000 of the total being traditional album sales. Dark Sky Paradise did even better moving 173,000 copies, 139,000 of which were traditional album sales.
Sean will be adding to his resume in the acting field, as it was recently announced he's going to voice a character on HBO's animated series Animals.
