Big Sean says buying his family a new home is one of his ''biggest accomplishments.''

The 26-year-old rapper, who is dating Ariana Grande, splashed out on a ''super nice house'' for his mother, brother and grandmother in Detroit after he signed his first record deal.

He explained: ''I had to get them outta the hood in Detroit. It was just getting too ridiculous. That was one of my biggest accomplishments. I mean, it's not like a super big mansion or anything but at least it's paid for, it's a super nice house in a gated community.''

The 'Blessings' hitmaker insists he doesn't take his success for granted and always meditates before going into the recording studio.

Speaking to The Coveteur, he said: ''I close my eyes, I concentrate on my breathing. I visualise myself getting to feel the light and connecting to a higher power. I take 10-15 minutes, then I go down there and start vibe-ing out.''

Meanwhile, the star, whose real name is Sean Michael Anderson, enjoys cooking when he isn't working and is very strict when it comes to his diet.

He said: ''I gotta make sure I take all of my vitamins, supplements, all that. From the fish oil to the Vitamin C. I cook very simple things. Vegetables...things gotta be sautéed right, seasoned right, that's just really the key to anything.''
