On Tuesday (August 2), Sean Don revisited the school with his pregnant girlfriend Jhené Aiko and her family, while giving his Instagram followers a tour of the state-of-the-art music facility.
The studio boasts a drum kit, drum machine, keyboards and other equipment, and is lined with plaques of Big Sean’s albums. However, the Finally Famous rapper seemed more concerned about the lack of students in the room.
“They gotta let the students use this, though,” he said in one clip. “That’s the whole point of it being here, is for the students to use this… Principal Phillips.”
Some thought Sean’s comment was a dig at the school’s principal, but he later clarified he meant no disrespect.
“I love Principal Phillips at Cass Tech by the way,” he wrote in another Instagram Story. “My fault if it got misconstrude [sic], she been family. CT #1 2nd to None.”
In another video from his high school visit, Big Sean showed off the Cass Tech Hall of Fame wall, where his face sits next to other notable almuni including legendary singer Diana Ross and comedian David Alan Grier.
Sean Don, who has served as the franchise’s Creative Director of Innovation since December 2020, let it be known that he and the rest of the Pistons organization were paying close attention to the demands of the fanbase.
