Mental health isn’t often positively discussed in hip-hop and rap music – with the likes of Future’s ‘Mask Off’ making audiences repeat words such as: “Percocets, molly, Percocets”.

But, inevitably, as mental health is a topic that weaves itself into all of our every day lives – some artists are tackling it head on.


Logic took over the rap game this year with ‘1-800-273-8255 (feat. Alessia Cara & Khalid)’ – a song which directly speaks about issues such as mental health, substance abuse and suicidal thoughts. For a song with such a positive message, it’s incredible that it’s lasted so long and stayed relevant for over 6 months.

On his show, Myles McCaulskey discussed the intersect between mental health and rap, and the impact of Logic’s ‘1-800’ on society.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
