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 🙏🏾
Sean came into the industry repping the D to the fullest, but it’s his philanthropic efforts, Sean Anderson Foundation, that helped get the 29 year old rapper this honor. In the Instagram post above, he speaks of receiving the key and being in the ranks of Berry Gordy and Stevie Wonder.
Big Sean also noted that the foundation’s “Mogul Prep” initiative will be taught this fall in high schools in Detroit and Baltimore, Md. The program was created in collaboration with his mother, Myra Anderson, a former schoolteacher.
