Detroit’s own Big Sean kicked the year off in a big way. Announcing his new album “I Decided” along with a new tour, but still didn’t forget about the people from his home state.
according to BET
Big Sean reveals that through his foundation, he has been able to raise roughly $100,000 to help assist the people of Flint, Michigan.
“I just know it’s not even close to being over,” the rapper shares with host Trevor Noah. “In that situation, I feel like, it’s not a natural disaster. It’s something that should’ve been prevented and could’ve been prevented, so it’s just disgusting to think about the damages that these families and even kids have to go through with the lead poisoning.”
On top of the Flint water crisis being an ongoing problem since roughly April 2014, when reports first shed light on the catastrophic reality that the drinking water had been contaminated by lead, the rapper also revealed just how close to home the issue hits, explaining that his own mother had been personally affected.
