Mental Health In Music.
It’s been a tough year psychologically for artists in the community. It has become more apparent that while music has made the creator seem larger than life, they are human just like every one of us who like we do have a lot to deal with outside the music.
The misconception that HipHop is a hardcore genre of music where only the toughest in the game can fit in with lyrics being all about cars, money, women is wrong. Artists should be encouraged to express the deep issues going on in their lives in their music. It makes them more human, fans and listeners are able to relate more with the music and it gives the Artist an outlet for stress relief. In Tyler, The Creator’s debut mixtape “Bastard” he raps about not knowing his father and going through a depressing phase in his life. That endeared him to the hearts of teens going through the same situation. Imagine Eminem not being able to vent in his music and release all that he was going through at that point of his life, having all that bottled up inside him … The same applies to everyone.
