Detroit rapper Big Sean announced that his foundation has raised around $100,000 for those affected by the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan. The Sean Anderson Foundation will use the funds to help people with lead poisoning get proper medical treatment and will provide them with clean water.

"It's not even close to being over," Big Sean told Trevor Noah on Comedy Central's Daily Show. "That situation wasn't a natural disaster. It's something that should've been prevented and could've been prevented, so it's just disgusting to think about the damages that these families and even kids have to go through with the lead poisoning."

The rapper’s own mother actually suffered from some lead poisoning, but after receiving holistic and homeopathic treatments, her symptoms got better. Now he wants to help other locals. The star has also revealed that a song on his new album, “I Decided,” will feature the Flint Chosen Choir, saying he “was just happy to have Flint be a part of my album.”

The discussion about Flint starts at the 8:00 mark.
