One Man Can Change The World: A Meaningful The Life of a Genuine Saint


Published by on July 16, 2015

Together with John Legend and Kanye West, Big Sean relayed to his fans the battles he confronted over the span of his trip, and the positive impact that his grandmother had in his life. ‘One Man Can Change the World‘ is a motivating song with a strong meaning that would make you feel each word in it.

The verses and the song essentially provides the wistful side of the latter who confessed to being emotional, fell on his knees and simply prayed at a hotel on an hour break from meeting and appearances planned to propel the record.

Conceptualized 2 years ago for an Influential man “Barrack Obama” and tuned to radios as the forth single of his forth official album Dark Sky Paradise and released May 26 this year.

Although he admitted how shrouded he was losing his grandmother and mentor Mildred V. Leonard, he admitted that in a way he was relieved that his Grandmother’s suffering finally ended.

In an MTV Interview he Expressed

I simply lost my grandmother, along these lines, just before she passed, I composed this melody. A noteworthy piece of the tune is about her. She never got an opportunity to hear it. It’s only a passionate thing. What’s more, I’ve got my mother here with me. I’m having some major difficulty tolerating her passing, yet I must recognize my grandmother’s life, a genuine saint.

In the first and second verse of the song, Big Sean looked back at how he was as a child, the way he viewed things with innocence and the way he was brought out, how fast he grew because of experiences, and how it feels to struggle because wealth was not handed to him in a silver platter. He rapped about his brother who sold YaY (a slang for cocaine).

Big Sean Reflecting

Sean knows this run won’t last forever and doesn’t want to wind up broke when his career slows down like other rappers. When you have goals to accomplish don’t hesitate, don’t let obstacles push you down, and when you accomplish each point of reference commend yourself because that implies your penances are gradually paying off. His grandmother told him that whatever legacy he leaves it has to be positive, because once it’s done, he can never take that back (especially growing up in Detroit).

Big Sean is exceptionally driven. He has dependably been a youthful visionary. He awakens realizing that he won’t just be doing what he adores, however he will work to be the best and every time he gets tired by working twice an average men does, he reminds himself of an incomparable legacy his Grandmother left.

Big Sean Post on Instagram

My grandma passed away a couple days ago. I haven't said anything to anyone because honestly I feel like she's still here. I definitely can feel her consciousness. Im having a hard time accepting her death, but I must acknowledge my grandma's life, a true hero. She was a black female Captain in World War 2 (one of the 1st), got her degree at West Virginia State University, and her Masters degree at U of M. After school she became a police officer in Detroit, which at the time was very rare for women to be officers in Detroit. Then she became a caring teacher and counselor. She was the best grandma anyone could ever ask for. From the Sunday Dinners, home cooked meals, and how special she made us feel on our birthdays by baking us the cakes we loved most. She put her heart and more into anything she was involved in. She gave as much as she could to her family and the world! She completely made something out of nothing. When I was growing up, there were people interviewing my grandma about her life because she's done and seen so many amazing things. She supported me so much in every aspect and part of my life, even when I went against what was becoming traditional in our family, and didn't go to college to pursue music. She made a better life for me and the rest of my family, and I will forever be grateful I got to know and be loved by such an amazing woman! I'm so proud of her. She was truly a treasure to this world and everyone she came in contact with. She's the reason why I'm so passionate about giving back. Her spirit will live through her family. We miss and love u so much Grandma!
