about

While good music creates a space to heal spiritually, the genre of hip-hop gives a voice to the voiceless- amplifying the voice that needs to be heard when so few are speaking up about important issues. Mental health is one of the most significant issues plaguing humans, especially for our youth. We think that it is time to discuss this and heal.

lyrics

let's talk about it/
my scars are out and yet I walk the proudest/
I wrote this in remembrance of all the harsh encounters/
the times I felt as if the darkest cloud is all around us/
but was told it's only in my head and I was taught to doubt it/
internalized the discomfort, feeling defective/
depressed and deemed less than, so we repressed it/
see my reflection in faces that pass/
in all my uncles with addictions pouring pain in a glass/
in a lineage of loved ones with suicide attempts/
doesn't make them weak, it makes them human, and you are not exempt/
so I call us all together as a unified offense/
to extend a helping hand to stand with you inside the trench/
bent the rules on the isms, survivors and not victims/
'cause our existence is bigger than just a list of symptoms/
listen, we're not crazy, not weak and not violent/
not hiding, not still, not scared and not silent/
so let's talk
