Sean Anderson. He’s also known as Big Sean. He’s from Detroit, Michigan and went to the same high school that most of my friends went to. He grew up around the corner from where I spent most of my childhood years. We’re from the same place but yet living completely different worlds now.
Anyway. I recently was able to check out one of his concerts for the first time. He performed at the University of Central Florida. There was a huge, mixed crowd. It was great to see somebody from my hometown get so much love from several different races. As I looked around, I couldn’t help but smile at the white faces mouthing every lyric of his songs, just as the black faces were. It made me proud. I don’t know him personally, but it’s not about that. We have a Detroit connection. People from where I’m from don’t usually get life-changing opportunities like the one Big Sean has. People don’t usually make it out on top. You wouldn’t understand.
Enough of that, here’s a little video I put together of the concert. I noticed that I had quite a few videos in my phone of the show, so I decided to do something with them. This was all shot and edited on my iPhone.
This was a hip-hop concert, so just a heads up, there is explicit language in some of the songs. If that’s not your thing, hey, I warned you. If that is your cup of tea, enjoy!
