This week, the US drugs crisis may have claimed another victim with the suspected overdose of the New York rapper. The genre has always been open about recreational drugs – but how did constant references to depression and prescription painkillers move into the mainstream?

its the reduction in public disgust/negativity/judgement that's enabled people in general to be more open in discussion about mental health/depression/bi-polar which is a very good thing I feel.

I don't know on the drugs front but possibly self medication for the above in place of booze or as well as booze it often seems.

whilst ive never heard of this chap let alone his music its a sad state of affairs all the same.
I hope his family & friends recover
