Big Sean says buying his family a new home is one of his "biggest accomplishments."
The 26-year-old rapper, who is dating Ariana Grande, splashed out on a "super nice house" for his mother, brother and grandmother in Detroit after he signed his first record deal.
He explained: "I had to get them outta the hood in Detroit. It was just getting too ridiculous. That was one of my biggest accomplishments. I mean, it's not like a super big mansion or anything but at least it's paid for, it's a super nice house in a gated community."
The 'Blessings' hitmaker insists he doesn't take his success for granted and always meditates before going into the recording studio.
Speaking to The Coveteur, he said: "I close my eyes, I concentrate on my breathing. I visualise myself getting to feel the light and connecting to a higher power. I take 10-15 minutes, then I go down there and start vibe-ing out."
Meanwhile, the star, whose real name is Sean Michael Anderson, enjoys cooking when he isn't working and is very strict when it comes to his diet.
He said: "I gotta make sure I take all of my vitamins, supplements, all that. From the fish oil to the Vitamin C. I cook very simple things. Vegetables...things gotta be sautéed right, seasoned right, that's just really the key to anything."
