Big Sean‘s return to the limelight doesn’t only include music, but also his brand new book,¬†Go Higher: Five Practices for Purpose, Success, and Inner Peace.

The idea came to mind after a conversation with Jay Shetty¬†and following his decision in 2019 to keep it real with his fans about the depression and anxiety he’d been experiencing at the time.

“I was talking to¬†Jay Shetty¬†on his podcast [in 2022],” Sean tells People. “At the end of it, he just pulled me to the side and was like, ‘You’ve got to write a book, bro.’ Even after the interview, he kept texting me like, ‘Yo, man. Let me know when you got the book coming.'”

Go Higher: Five Practices for Purpose, Success, and Inner Peace¬†comes out October 8 from Simon Element. It will feature¬†five key practices for inner work, inspired by books like¬†The Four Agreements¬†by Don Miguel Ruiz and¬†The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success¬†by Deepak Chopra, as well as¬†personal stories, including “how he found self-acceptance and mental wellness.”

“The point of this book really is how to have a foundation to build upon for wellness, for your mental, for spiritual, spiritually,” Big Sean says. “How to have a piece of armor for the tough times that you may have to endure. You know, a lot of us wait until we’re in the darkest place to start praying or to start working on ourselves.”
