Big Sean Launches Foundation To Support Detroit Youth, Kanye West & Common Support

Big Sean's Sean Anderson Foundation will set up shop in Detroit, Michigan to give back to the kids.

Detroit, Michigan emcee and DXnext alum Big Sean has launched the Sean Anderson Foundation this past week. The G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Records artist's non-profit will focus on improving the lives of youth in his hometown. At an area show, at Auburn Hills' The Palace, Sean performed a show joined by mentor Kanye West, Common and J. Cole, among others. An announcement regarding the foundation was made during the concert.

“The mission of the Sean Anderson Foundation is to assist in the education, health, safety and well-being of Detroit area school-aged youth," Big Sean said in a statement. "I want to use my awareness to improve the situations in our school systems in particular. Many schools in Detroit have been closing or are in danger of closing. My school played an integral part of making me the man I am today and without that education and extra care, I don't know where I would be today. So, I just want to help support the well being of young people in anyway that I can."

The Sean Anderson Foundation’s offices will be located in Detroit, and activities are run by the organization’s officers and board of directors appointed by Sean and his mother Myra Anderson who serves as the President.

    Actions are judged by intentions. God willing his intentions are good.

    Hope this move is genuine, because tax season is coming and the young man has generated quite a bit of coin this year. Before you get emotional and defend him like you're romantically involved with him, Swizz Beatz and Jim Jones actually are in the NYC Public Schools doing this and I have read the "f-ck you punk bitch you wack" comments about those two from many of you on this site.

      i thought the same thing when i read this article. A lot of these celebs do these foundations for the tax breaks. But they're doing more than I am so i can't complain.
