Hotlanta got even hotter over the weekend.
Rolling Out reports that Empire star and the new face of Sean John, Jussie Smollett, was recently presented with keys to the city of Atlanta.
“It was an honor receiving the key to the city,” said Smollett, a California native, during the presentation ceremony. “The people are so beautiful and lovely to me. I love Atlanta.”
Both Smollett and Sean John were recognized for the Dream Big campaign, the clothing line’s ongoing partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta. Sean John and Smollett each donated $5,000 to the organization before the actor sat down with 10 lucky kids from the local organization.
