There are plenty of celebs that call Detroit home; you don't often see them out and about, but one was having a ballin' time last night. Detroit native Big Sean was seen courtside cheering the Pistons on to victory.

While he currently owns a home in both California and Detroit, the rap artist likes to stop into games at the new Little Caesar's Arena when he's around his hometown.

He's been spotted a few other games this season and he's always down for a shoutout on the big screen. 

He even took the time to take some selfies with fans.

It was awesome to see how much his hometown appreciates his continued support when he went onto the court to shoot a few baskets.

He also showed his love for the players with some bro handshakes with Piston's stars Andre Drummond & Blake Griffin.

Although the rapper was born in Santa Monica, he spent only two months there before moving to the west side of Detroit where he was raised.

Sean attended the Detroit Waldorf School for middle and elementary school which is very focused on creative expression and the rapper attributes some of his talents to the school's emphasis on poetry and art.

He later transitioned to Cass Tech for high school where he further honed his rap skills as he says the rap battles were intense. 

The rapper name drops Detroit in his songs frequently, but that's not just for show. He invests his time and money into the community through his non-profit organization, The Sean Anderson Foundation, and we love him for it. 

Big Sean's current dedication to Detroit is a good indication of how special this city is. He's created scholarships for students to help them achieve and has donated to athletic programs so that kids have fun activities do after class.

He even opened up a recording studio at his high school alma mater! 

Big Sean was always talented & even turned down academic scholarships so that he could pursue his career in rap music. 

His representation of Detroit definitely isn't limited to being mentioned in songs or appearances at sports games either. A few months ago, he released a video filmed near the iconic Spirit of Detroit statue that has become an unofficial symbol of the city.

The Pistons are in their third season at the new Little Caesars Arena which also homes the Detroit Red Wings and is the venue for tons of performers like Post Malone and The Chainsmokers. 

Big Sean's presence at the game last night is just more proof of how much he loves this city.
