(Radio.com) Vince Staples and Big Sean may have come a long way from where they started-North Long Beach and Detroit, respectively-but that doesn't mean the rappers have forgotten their roots. Far from it. Both recently launched efforts to help youth and college students in their hometowns.

Thanks to Staples' backing and the support of North Long Beach officials, area youth will be able to enroll in a program dedicated to the arts this summer. Youth Institute in North Long Beach, a YMCA program, will enroll 20 area pre-teens this summer to participate in filmmaking, music production and even graphic design, according to the Long Beach Press Telegram.

"I think the most important thing is opportunities," Staples said at a press conference on June 14th. "What I can say is, living over here my entire life, I've never had an opportunity given to me from the area, only examples of how to mess up, and what I didn't want to do."

Meanwhile, in Detroit, Big Sean donated $25,000 on June 13 to help combat college homelessness. Read more here.
