Big Sean Receives the Key to Detroit
Putting on for his city has paid off as Big Sean recently received the key to his hometown Detroit from Mayor Mike Duggan.
The G.O.O.D. Music MC revealed prestigious distinction via Instagram, showing off a picture of himself holding up the accolade. "Today I got one of the highest honors a person can receive, the key to the City Of Detroit," he captioned the pic. "The mayor said he's given it to 3 people... Stevie Wonder, Berry Gordy, and Me. I'm the youngest person to receive this in the history of the city! Thank u for this monumental moment!"

According to the organization's website, their mission is to "assist in the education, health, safety and well-being of Detroit Area school aged youth as well disadvantaged youth in other areas across the nation."
The impact the foundation and its initiatives have made on the youth of the Motor City so far have been noteworthy. "He honored me and my foundation for motivating the city through my music n messaging and starting an actual curriculum called 'Mogul Prep" that teaches kids all the behind the scenes jobs available in the music industry and taught to them at a high school level," Sean added. "This will be applied to Detroit Public Schools come this fall and some schools in Baltimore and more. thanks to my mom for being a teacher n helping w/ this tremendously and our foundation @seanandersonorg. N thanks to all the people that attended this inspiring event! I'm a keep putting my energy into this."
