Just as the song’s title seems to suggest, the visual includes some strong religious imagery, showcasing a little boy outfitted in a pair of angel wings and a woman who appears to be praying in a church. The track’s lyrics reference God, angels, and demons, as Sean raps about his faith in a higher being. The single also includes the Detroit native rapping about Dr. Sebi, who died in 2016 after claiming that he could cure AIDS using a supplement-based treatment.
“Harder Than My Demons” is set appear on Big Sean’s forthcoming album Detroit 2, which drops on September 4. Just last week, the rapper released the single “Deep Reverence” with Nipsey Hussle before previewing a snippet of his track with Lil Wayne, “Don Life.”
Detroit 2 has been years in the making and is the highly-anticipated follow-up to the G.O.O.D. Music artist’s 2012 mixtape Detroit, which included features from artists like French Montana, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Juicy J, Royce da 5’9”, and more.
