Run-DMC Wants Rappers To Address Addiction & Mental Health In Music

Run-DMC Wants Rappers To Address Addiction & Mental Health In Music #RunDMC #Rappers #Address #Addiction #Mental #Health #Music Welcome to TmZ Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:

He’s a beloved pioneer of Hip Hop who has witnessed the ever-changing transition of the genre from one generation to the next, so Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run-DMC knows a thing or two about the impact of Rap. His classics have been covered, remixed, chopped and screwed as music fans have enjoyed the evolution of the trio—a group rounded out by Rev Run and the late-great Jam Master Jay.

Each generation faces its own sets of obstacles, especially within Hip Hop, and in recent years, we’ve seen a rise in artists losing their lives to violence, mental health struggles and suicide, or drug addictions and substance abuse. HipHopDX chatted with DMC about the culture and he expressed a bit of frustration with current artists failing to use their platforms to speak about these plaguing issues and, instead, often choosing to perpetuate them.

“They didn’t listen. The big problem is nobody in this current generation of rappers is constantly making records about the issues. Think about it,” said DMC. “Out of all the top rappers, all of them, of this generation, did any of them make a message of self destruction? No. All of these successful dudes and girls, nobody’s doing songs about Peep, Mac Miller and Juice WRLD.”
