ROLE MODEL: Navigating the Mainstream

Those of us that grew up during hip-hop’s golden era,  aren’t completely sold on today’s music. We talk about it all the time in such a negative fashion that we haven’t really began to open our ears. By not giving “their” music a fair chance, we’ve ignored this new wave of music and its artists. This generation of music is unafraid to talk about things that were once taboo, like  mental health. They’ve become their own source of guidance through depression, drug addiction, and other mental health issues. The youth of today look to artists that share similar stories, the same way 80s babies listened to artists we felt we could relate to. That’s where artists who are brave enough to talk about mental health in their music like Tucker Pillsbury, aka ROLE MODEL come into play.
