I refer to the article by the Chatsworth Rising Sun written on the 18th of August 2016, which discussed how many South Africans are now relying on anti-depressants to get by. As a young South African who has been through the things that I have been through, I am not one that is new to dealing with mental disorders such as depression.
As a rapper and musician, this inspired me to delve into this concept on my next body of work - an album named MAD. To date the MAD album is the most exhilarating and daunting project I have worked on thus far, where the album takes you on a mental odyssey into the mind of Tre vs Brandon Adam Harrison.
Keeping sane in this industry is something I would like to unravel...especially with depression gripping South Africa!
