Flint rapper Jon Connor visited his hometown recently for the first time since signing a record deal with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment.
Connor now lives in Burbank, Calif., and performed for a national television audience at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards.
In Flint, Connor, whose real name is Jon Freeman II, had a party at Encore Bar & Grill and concert at Z Club. He also attended a reunion with Powers Catholic High School classmates.
He says "Flint is always going to be special" to him and as an inspiration for his music.
