Big Sean stopped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah continuing the promotion of his upcoming album and also to talk about his foundation and the fundraising he’s been doing for Flint, Michigan.
Big Sean’s next studio album I Decided is currently slated to drop in February. His lead single from the project “Bounce Back” was recently certified Gold (sold 500,000+ units).
On “Bounce Back” Sean says, “last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back.” Noah jokingly asked him about latest L, and Sean said it was his phone ringing while on Jimmy Fallon’s show.
Sean then went on to explain how his next album artwork is symbolic of his place in life. The parallel versions of himself on the album’s cover art are two different stages of life.
Sean also talked about his foundation that he co-runs with his mother, The Sean Anderson Foundation. Through the foundation, he gives back to his community in Michigan. The program sponsors children to have pen pals in Soweto, South Africa. The foundation also has a program named Mogul Prep. The program shows students other attainable careers in the Entertainment Industry besides being an artist. Sean also told Noah they’re working on getting the curriculum integrated in the school systems.
A spectacular thing the foundation has done is raise money for Flint, Michigan. The foundation has roughly raised $100,000 thus far. Flint has been experiencing a water crisis for the past few years. The city’s water has been plagued with lead poisoning, and its greatly affected the community. He shared that even his mother has been affected by the lead, but that she’s doing better.
I Decided is expected to be released on February 3rd. Check out Big Sean’s conversation with Trevor Noah below:
