The conversation around mental health and depression in America has become much more prevalent over the past couple years due to the highly-publicized suicides of artists including, Lil Peep, Chester Beinnington & Avicii. It seems the music industry is finally speaking out about the need to de-stigmatize mental health and provide psychological support when artists need it most. Yet, little is known about the sheer magnitude of the problem as a recent report shows that 70% of musicians admit they have suffered from anxiety or depression. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Miami-raised rapper, BZZY wanted to give a voice to the kind of trauma he’d known up close. His new video for “Suicidal Tendencies”, directed by Codl Creator, chronicles the dark, harrowing reality of suicide. It’s a moving visual that will stay with you even after the video ends.
“Suicidal Tendencies” is the second offering off BZZY’s upcoming album Before I Jump, due out later this summer. The follow-up to his 2016 project A Part Of Everything, Before I Jump signifies the death of the artist’s old moniker Bizzy Crook, and the birth of a lyricist with a revitalized will to live. BZZY is preparing his loyal fans and his haters for his upcoming album with music filled with personal anecdotes and introspection.
The Florida native left his former alias behind to make a new name from himself once he dropped his mixtape A Part Of Everything before the end of 2016. The choice to drop Crook came from coming to terms with him battle against depression and how it was music that got him through it all, but he wants to know help people who are going through it. BZZY says his music is coming from a better place now and focusing on his music, but he is still reflecting on his experiences in his work. He explains that “[he] found refuge in the studio through making music. I can express myself through words on a song so much more easily.”
“’Suicidal Tendencies’ is the intro to my upcoming album Before I Jump. Creating this album I literally felt like I was going insane,” BZZY said. “Life was becoming overwhelming – exhaustion, constant mental breakdowns, in and out of depression, & losing faith. On this album, I was on the verge of suicide, and these are the last moments leading up to it. It’s about life’s highs and the lows, and writing music allowed me to work through my personal struggles.”
