Big Sean loved Dragon Ball Z when it premiered on TV. The show was a way for him to learn about experimental animation and innovative storytelling. It’s no wonder that young Big Sean was a fan of the show, as Schemmel explained that his director told him to act, “For the children!” Schemmel took that advice to heart.
Even though Big Sean is an adult now, Schemmel says that he will always perform for him because he was once one of those kids who watched the show. Schemmel definitely inspired one talented rapper who was a guest performer on The Voice. It would be fun to learn whether other The Voice icons, including the show’s highest-paid coach Blake Shelton, are also into anime.
