Over production from Hit-Boy, Key Wane and the Tucker Brothers – Sean Don opens up about his battle with depression, “I didn’t take a break my nigga, I broke,” Sean raps. “Broke my heart, broke my soul, don’t cry for me though/If you don’t break nothing down then it’s no room to grow/One mental block lead to another, shit it’s dominos.”
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Wednesday (July 24), the Detroit rapper said the new record is about returning to where it all started.
“In a sense I just been returning to my roots, bro,” Sean explains. “I’ve just been getting back to having fun with it. You know what I’m saying? At one point I felt like it might have started to become like a burden, or like work, but now it’s just fun. So this is just me having fun bro, expressing myself. It was a time well spent. I never really knew how important it was to take some time for myself and get myself right. And it takes a while so it can take … That’s something you can’t really put on a time schedule. But you know, throughout that whole time I’ve been working on music so it is good to get it out. It is good for people to just finally see where we are because I got so much just ready for the world. It’s deeper than just putting music out. It’s like I feel like I got a lot to say that a lot of people may not be addressing right now. You know what I’m saying? As far as just emotions and feelings that a lot of people are going through.”
Big Sean hasn’t released a solo album since 2017’s I Decided. That same year he teamed up with Metro Boomin for the collab project Double Or Nothing.
“Overtime” is more than likely the first single from his upcoming fifth studio album .
