In the latest segment of SoulCulture’s mental health campaign, #OKNotToBeOK, Roc Nation’s North Carolina emcee J. Cole discusses experiencing depression for the first time whilst crafting his anticipated sophomore album, Born Sinner.
I think every great musician suffered depression or even deep depression at one point in their careers. It can bring out some of the best music you’ve ever made. I mean you guys even like Lil Wayne with huge ego’s and tons of money but still have a dark side to them and often get caught in it (when weezy was heavy on syrup) and Tupac definitely has songs wear you can hear can just hear it. Eminem is a great example of this, same with Kanye. Not even rappers, look at all the great musicians, most have all had very dark stages in their lives.
I love this
