While talking to Undefeated, Sean talked about his new role in the NBA team and his excitement at starting a business. “I’m a big fan of Detroit. I ride or die with it,” Sean added, sharing his experience growing up watching Grant Hill and how music and sports go hand in hand. “They go hand in hand together, so it’s easy to mix the two and it’s very natural. We’re in the studio and watching their games, and they’re listening to our music in the locker room.”
While describing his franchise business in detail, Sean talked about how he would need to “creatively come up with ideas” to “look good and have fun.” He is convinced that, as they continue, they will face various new tasks and challenges, and they will deal with more than just designing T-shirts and jerseys.
“This is a huge step for me,” he said, throwing himself into ownership and other future steps. In the end, he hopes other people are positively affected by it. “And I’m sure it will inspire so many others from my city, but then to know that they can and I’m even happier about it.”
