Influence of Dr. Sebi Can be Heard in Rapper Big Sean’s Recently Released Song and Video, “Harder Than My Demons”

Share Article

Referenced by rapper Big Sean in his recent song, Dr. Sebi and the alkaline diet he popularized continues to influence musicians and artists.

The artist Big Sean began the month of September by releasing Detroit 2, the rapper’s first solo album since 2017, described by Rolling Stone as “a monument to holistic healing, alternative medicine, and religion.”

It may be no surprise then that the lyrics of the album's first single, “Harder Than My Demons”, reference Dr. Sebi, who, as Complex notes in their review of track, “died in 2016 and was the subject of a documentary that was reportedly in the works when Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot in 2019.”

During his lifetime, Dr. Sebi’s insistence on a natural, vegan, alkaline diet attracted a high profile clientele including Michael Jackson, Eddie Murphy, John Travolta, and, perhaps most famously, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC. Both Dr. Sebi and Lopez are referenced in the lyrics to Big Sean’s ode to spiritual discovery:

All natural, Doctor Sebi, you gon' have to CBD me
I been watchin' what they feed mе (Woah, woah)
I like when she tеll me with her body language that she need me (Yeah)
See my third eye is on Left Eye, I can't let them Eazy-E me

Dr. Sebi is known for his “African Bio-Mineral Balance Diet,” a dietary philosophy that promotes a vegan diet full of alkaline-based fruits, grains, and vegetables, which serves as an increasingly influential alternative to the conventions of western eating practices. Eventually, Dr. Sebi established Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food, offering nutritional supplements developed by Dr. Sebi himself to support what the self-proclaimed naturalist and healer considered profound nourishment for all people.

Presently, Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food products included the brand’s signature Testo, a natural testosterone and stamina booster; Viento, a potent mix of beneficial herbs for natural energy; Green Food, A multi-mineral formula that promotes good health and nourishment; and Immune Support Tea, packed with the antioxidant rich elderberry, one of nature’s most versatile traditional remedies.
