The artist spoke about the responsibility he has for his city, also giving CNN a look at the state-of-the-art studio he built in his alma mater, Cass Technical High School. It gives up and coming musicians a chance to hone and develop their skills. He also reminisced on the old days during which he’d get into trouble for trying to pass out his CDs in the hallways.
“It’s just so easy to get caught up in the wrong things when you’re young,” he told CNN. “Having somebody that you could look up to, whether it’s a family member, whether it’s a mentor, whether it’s your favorite rapper, you know, whatever it is, I see the importance of showing people their inner potential.”
“I’ve got to give back. That’s my responsibility, you know. The city put me on, so I’m going to put the city on as much as I can,” Anderson said.
