Sean Price Took Over My Job For A Day & It Was Amazing!

Back in late October 2012, I got the word that Sean Price would be taking over my job for the day. I was told he would be taking over our (HipHopDX) Twitter account for an entire day, and I was to oversee the operation.

Now, what would you do if someone came into your job today and told you Sean Price was filling in for you? Personally, I was excited, but also scared to death [Laughs]. This was the same guy who had just recently reported during Hurricane Sandy with swimming goggles on [Laughs].

I knew we were in for something good, and I was hype for November 1 (2012) to arrive.

Suicide, Mental Illness & Hip-Hop

For a person that has struggled with Depression and Anxiety most of my life, I found it very important to write this article. My grandmother (RIP) struggled with severe depression most of her life, and I do believe it is hereditary.

Now, I don’t think my Depression and Anxiety is as bad as some people, but it is something I deal with on a daily basis. My personal issues come more on the Anxiety side; worrying, over-thinking and stressing out easy. People always ask me what it feels like to have anxiety, but it’s not something that can be explained really. If you experience it on a daily basis, you know the feeling and how awkward it can make certain situations.

To be honest, I have never thought about killing myself.  I have never thought about actually doing it or have I ever attempted it. I am not here to say that someone who has attempted or committed suicide is any less of a person than me, or anyone for that matter. People deal with trials and tribulations differently and you really never know what is going on in someone’s head. It’s scary.  Continue reading

Heroin & Hip Hop: Why I Posted The Cadalack Ron Video

So I have caught some backlash for posting a video called “California Rapper Cadalack Ron Shoots Heroin During Rap Battle”.
