Big Sean received the key to his hometown of Detroit over the weekend. Sean posted a picture of himself getting the key with a caption sharing his excitement. He also shared that part of the reason he received the honor was because of his Sean Anderson Foundation whose 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.”
He also shared that he is the youngest person to ever receive the key. Check out his post below. Congratulations!
Today I got one of the highest honors a person can receive, the key to the City Of Detroit. 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! 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. 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 🙏🏾
