When Big Sean isn’t trending around the world as an international rap star, he usually uses his downtime to help improve his community. On Sunday, the Detroit rapper’s efforts were recognized at the June 19 honors ceremony.

Sean was in Washington, DC over the weekend where he received the Community Service Award at the inaugural Juneteetnth Honors Ceremony. This recognition is the product of “Sean’s extraordinary record of service to the black community”, which has been well documented during his career. Whether it’s providing opportunities or trying to create a broader dialogue around mental health in the black community, Big Sean certainly deserved the award.

The ceremony aired on FOX SOUL with hosts Terrence J and MC Lyte who also helped honor other black musicians and public figures. Additionally, the event featured live performances from Rick Ross, T.I., and Keri Hilson. Other winners include Maxwell, Omari Hardwick, Doug E. Fresh, Robert Smith, Cathy Hughes and Congresswoman Joyce Beatty.

The 34-year-old rapper has succeeded with what you expect alongside Hit-Boy in late 2021. However, he recently hinted that a new Twenty88 project, his side project with Jhené Aiko, is currently in the works. Hopefully we’ll get some new heat from Big Sean in the months to come.

Congratulations to Big Sean for the massive recognition! We’ll keep you posted on updates regarding the Detroit rapper.
