Big Sean

Big Sean revealed that getting a key to the city of his native Detroit in 2011 was one of his career milestones. Speaking with BBC 1's Tim Westwood, he stated:

"When I got the key to the city when I got back to Detroit, [that was best moment in my career]. When I saw the expression on my grandma's face ... to just see her so happy and proud, and to see my mom so proud and be able to support them, that was the best."
