Detroit’s own Big Sean has always been concerned with the struggles going on in the city of his come-up, but he’s also attuned to the dire straits faced by folks all over Michigan. During a recent appearance on The Daily Show, the 28-year-old Hall of Fame rapper touched on his efforts to alleviate the situation in Flint, Michigan, where the drinking water has been highly contaminated with lead since 2014.
“Well, I just know it’s not even close to being over,” said Sean. “In that situation, I feel like – it wasn’t a natural disaster – it’s something that should’ve been prevented and could’ve prevented.”
Big Sean also mentions the $100,000 he raised, with the help of his mom, for his charity the Sean Anderson Foundation, to aid with the clean-up efforts in Flint.

MIgos have been doing a press run for their upcoming album “Culture,” and along the way, they have been dropping several freestyles, including three during their sit-down with Sway.
The Atlanta trio was given three beats sent in by producers they frequently collaborate with, and Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset started freely spitting rhymes off the dome. They went through three beats in total to give listeners an up-close look at how they create their songs, which you can check out in the above clip.
Carol City, Florida’s Denzel Curry recently stopped by Power 106’s The Cruz Show packing some serious off the dome heat. The 21-year-old emcee took part in the radio show’s morning freestyle segment “Breakfast Bars” and dropped a crazy freestyle over the beat from the Snoop Dogg classic “I’m Fly.”

Thank you for loving me.”
