(AllHipHop News) Big Sean continues to put on for his city of Detroit, through his music and his actions.

Recently, the Cass Tech alum spoke alongside Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan in a packed room in front of the youth and local leaders.

The message? Getting involved in your community.

Big Sean stated, “I’m here in person because this is really important for me, important to the mayor and important to the city.”

Instead of plugging his music, the “I Don’t F##k With You” rapper spoke about the upcoming 2020 census.

While last time Detroit didn’t do too great, the city will receive money based on census results.

Sean Don continued, “This is about counting in your city. It’s about showing who you are because that’s how we get the funding.”

Duggan added, “The last time in 2010, Detroit was the worst in America in completing the census forms and it cost us dearly. What’s on the line is millions and millions of dollars in Headstart money, road money, health care money and Medicaid, that’s on the line.”

This is even bigger than Big Sean. This is about the community.
