We always try to find examples of people giving back. Big Sean has always been a big advocate for the city of Detroit, and specifically for his alma mater, Cass Technical High School.
He partnered with Adidas Originals to build a recording studio for the students in his former school.
“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 acknowledges in the video that not everyone is going to become a star, but that doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t have other outlets and explore other options.
“They can learn so much, from engineering, to recording, to just creating,” he said. “The possibilities are endless.”
