ALLHIPHOP.COM | Kendrick Lamar Talks Battling Depression On Houston’s 93.7

kendrick-lamar-press-2013-650

The music industry is such a difficult industry not just to get in, but to also maintain you as a person while being a successful musician. We may think that music’s biggest stars are completely happy in the global spotlight, but what we think is completely different from what their world. Recently, Kendrick Lamar spoke to Houston radio 93.7’s personality Devi Dev, and even opened up to her about his battle with depression.

“I’ve faced it [depression] in my life not only then, but now. In these recent years of being in the limelight and trying to deal with and balance your personal life with the music and what you do. It comes with a lot of turmoil when you’re talking about money, fame, fortune and success, a lot of things you have to handle and balance and that brings a whole lotta depression.”

Kendrick hasn’t been the first hip hop superstar to battle depression. Recently, Andre 3000 spoke about his battle with depression during the reunion tour. J. Cole was another victim to face depression before his successful sophomore project Born Sinner dropped in 2013. The correlation between depression and the music industry is way too common, and it only makes Kendrick’s new song “i” far more critical than any other song on the Billboard, especially as a black man.
