There are plenty of ways to give back, and Big Sean chose a special and innovative option for his alma mater, Cass Technical High School.
"Me and adidas [Originals] teamed up and I just opened my own recording studio in the high school for the kids," the rapper told MTV News earlier this week, while sitting inside of the state of the art Sean Anderson Studio of Infinite Possibilities for the first time.
"Education is changing, man," he continued. "A lot of these kids, they're out of the traditional way of learning. We try and misdiagnose them with things like ADD or this and that, and sometimes it may be the case, sometimes it's not. Sometimes, they're addicted to their phones because that's how they're learning now. Things are changing. This is a step forward in that direction."
He hopes this means the kids will not only have a chance to explore new musical horizons, but that it'll build a foundation for creativity and following their passions that will last for years to come.
"They can learn so much, from engineering, to recording, to just creating," he said. "The possibilities are endless."
