Rapper Big Sean visits Wayne State University

August 29, 2013


Detroit native Big Sean is on the rise in the rap game, and has spanned the globe with performances, but took time out Thursday to pay some respect to where it all started. The 25-year-old Big Sean, whose real name is Sean Michael Anderson, visited students at Wayne State University. His effort to give back to his city coincides with a renewed focus on the goals of his new Sean Anderson Foundation, aimed at the advancement of the city's school-aged youth. He was interviewed inside the school's Hilberry Theatre by fashion designer Jeff Staple, of New York City-based Staple Design.
