Earlier this week, Big Sean donated a new music studio to his alma mater, Cass Technical High School in Detroit, Michigan. Now, he’s giving fans a tour of the 784-square-foot space, officially named the Sean Anderson Studio of Infinite Possibilities.
“Me and adidas [Originals] teamed up and I just opened my own recording studio in the high school for the kids,” the rapper told MTV News while sitting inside of the state of the art facility.
So what inspired him to donate the studio? Sean believes that “education is changing,” adding, “a lot of these kids, they’re out of the traditional way of learning. We try and misdiagnose them with things like ADD or this and that, and sometimes it may be the case, sometimes it’s not. Sometimes, they’re addicted to their phones because that’s how they’re learning now. Things are changing. This is a step forward in that direction.”
The rapper hopes to inspire countless students to explore their musical talents. “They can learn so much, from engineering, to recording, to just creating,” he said. “The possibilities are endless.”
