Big Sean Steps In As The Creative Director Of Innovation For The Pistons

Big Sean is having a phenomenal year and he has no plans of slowing down. During a recent interview, the Detroit native revealed that he has taken on a new role with his favorite basketball team.

Big Sean is stepping in as the next Creative Director of Innovation for the Detroit Pistons. In this new role, Sean will act as an ambassador for the franchise while designing merchandise and contributing to creative campaigns.

"I’ll creatively come up with ideas for us to look good and have fun and, you know, to culturally put our best foot forward. On top of that, I’m sure it’ll be new assignments and new challenges as I go. There will be more things that I’ll be excited to do that are more than just designing T-shirts and jerseys — like giving back to the community. I know one of the things that I’m strong about is giving back to the city," the bestselling artist said.

Having grown up in the city, he grew up watching the likes of Grant Hill, Chauncey Billups, Ben Wallace and Richard Hamilton. Established as a musician and looking to venture into new spaces, this is a perfect match for the chart-topping act.

“It was really something I threw out in the universe one day,” Sean said.

“I mentioned it, like, man, ‘They need to give me a job!’ Talking about the Pistons, Red Wings, Tigers or Lions. I’m a huge Detroit fan. I’m [going to] ride or die with i. I’ve always said that, but especially with the Pistons. It’s crazy that it happened like this. I’m just truly grateful.”

He will step into his role for the first time tonight at the Pistons open their season against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
