THE WORD | Big Sean Gifts $100K Recording Studio To Detroit Boys & Girls Club

Big Sean's latest Detroit investment was already humming with action Saturday, as eager neighborhood kids filled his new production studio on the city's west side.

“Detroit is such a musical city, soulful city,” he said. “And there are so many kids that have the talent but just don’t have to resources to record.” Big Sean, according to the Detroit press

Big Sean made the donation during his second annual DON (Detroit’s On Now) Weekend.

The rapper's $100,000 facility at the Dick & Sandy Dauch Boys & Girls Club had them donning headphones, manning audio workstations, tinkering with DJ controllers, and running the lighting gear on a small performance stage. Big Sean looked on smiling as young singers and dancers covered songs by Lizzo and others.

Funded by his Sean Anderson Foundation, the remodeled space follows a fully equipped recording studio he opened at his alma mater Cass Tech in 2015.

“The west side of Detroit is my old neighborhood," he said Saturday, an afternoon full of selfies and hugs with young fans as he unveiled the facility. "It’s a full-circle moment when your neighborhood supports you and holds you high, and you’re in a position to be able to hold it up in your own way and take it further.”

Nobody is safe from a diss nowadays and it’s pretty evident they won’t slow down anytime soon. Big Sean dropped some bars on his new single “No More Interviews” and no one was safe from his raft.

Big Sean’s vented about everything from world issues to his ex’s book coming out saying, “And you know the funny thing about it is my ex wanna write a tell-all/ F---ed up thing about it is she ain’t even tell all/ Like how I introduced her to meditation, positive thinking/ And the books she probably read in daily rotation.”

He referenced Kid Cudi who he worked on for their 2013 collaboration First Chain along with Nas, "When I put you on that song with Nas you had told me that you was forever grateful. “And that we brothers, so it hurt to hit the Internet to find out that me and you don’t f--- with each other.”

He won't let you forget his ten year rise in the game, he's “a king, a legend, man, you n---as ain't worthy.”

He sat down with Jay-z earlier this year and tossed the idea of a fourth album teasing  Billboard in August that he couldn’t reveal any details but just know it will be his favorite.
