Big Sean has dropped his first solo single since 2017, taking the opportunity to address his career moves and flex on his influence. The track, “Overtime,” was produced by Hit-Boy, Key Wane and The Tucker Brothers, and follows his 2017 albums I Decided and Double or Nothing, which he created with Metro Boomin.
The confident song clocks in at less than four minutes, with Big Sean referring to himself as one of the best rappers out of Detroit. “Why you keep boxing me in?” he asks. “‘Cause I’m God’s gift.” The rapper, who vanished from the spotlight last year, takes the opportunity to address where he’s been: “Shit, I didn’t take a break, my n-gga, I broke/ Broke my heart, broke my soul /Don’t cry for me though /If you don’t break nothin’ down there’s no room to grow.”
