New Song From Rapper Logic Puts Spotlight On Mental Health

Logic, one of the hottest rappers around right now, has been speaking openly and candidly about his struggles with mental health. On his latest hit album, Everybody, he has a song called Anxiety, as well as another song called 1-800-273-8255, which is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
In the song, Logic raps the story of someone calling the suicide prevention line, and by the end of the song, he finally decides that life is worth living. (In one of the lines of the song, Logic raps, “I’m out of my mind, it feel like my life ain’t mine.”) As Logic told Wusa9, “Hopefully I am never there, but I know a lot of people who have [been].”
XXL Mag reported that the day the single dropped, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline got 4,573 calls in a day, a 27% increase, and a Google search for the hotline number went up 100%. Some callers even directly mentioned the song, and Logic called it the “most important song I’ve ever wrote on Twitter. In a statement, The National Suicide Lifeline said, “The release of 1-800-273-8255 is an unprecedented, watershed event for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. By using his artistic voice, Logic has addressed suicide thoughtfully and creatively to inspire fans to seek help and find hope.”

As a spokesperson for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline told Billboard, “We were honored to learn the song would not only be about a Lifeline caller, but would be named after us. We’re still excited about the possibilities. We believe this is a great example of how it is possible for artists and the media to address suicide thoughtfully and creatively, alongside people in the field. Logic’s song is an opportunity to make the conversation about suicide a conversation about how people can find hope and that support is available for anyone that needs it.”
