On the track produced by OB and DJ Pez, Minor uses astronaut as a metaphor to describe his determination to excel despite hurdles, rapping, “I been feeling like they been trying to hold me down … But everytime I fall I never touch the ground / I keep blasting off like a astronaut.”
Reflection Music Group artist Deraj reps for the squad on the second verse and Bryon Juane continues the theme, closing the song with soulful adlibs.
Last month, Minor released 1990s-inspired “Fresh Prince.”
