Mental illness is something that has been a focal point for 2018.
The world of entertainment has lost several key figures throughout the year because of mental illness and drug abuse.
One of the most publicized incidents has come at the cost of Kanye’s sanity. The pop icon has been open with his battle and attempts to bring it to the forefront in every way possible.
Many believe that Yeezy’s outburst is a sign cry for help. Either way, you put it the reality is that mental illness is all around us. Another artist that is too familiar with the issue is recording artist Kid Cudi.
Most recently the rapper appeared on Red Talk Table to speak on the growing concern of mental stability. The rapper had a candid conversation with host Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The conversation addressed Cudi’s pressure from fame and his abusive use of drugs.
