While bullshit continues to unfold under Trump and his excuse for a cabinet, Logic continues to use his platform to unite “Everybody.” Having already created a major spark with his socially-charged single, “1-800-273-8255,” where he speaks against suicide, the rapper going a step further by joining the “I’m Listening” suicide prevention campaign.
“I’m Listening” is coordinated by Entercom and already boasts a powerful lineup of stars like Metallica, Halsey, Khalid, and others, who are all in it to provide support to those individuals that may be at risk to take their lives.
Rolling Stone has said that the “I’m Listening” campaign will feature artists sharing their stories of struggles with mental health and other personal challenges. The campaign will also create public service announcements, counseling, promos, and talks that will air on Entercom stations starting today.
Logic’s hit-single, “1-800-273-8255,” was inspired by a fan, who told the Logic that his music saved him.
“It’s just so hard to fathom that, because I’m just like, a guy who raps,” said Logic. “And I had to ask myself, ‘If I saved your life, but I wasn’t even trying, could you imagine possibly all the people I could effect if I actually tried and I made, not only one song, but an entire album?’”
Good to see artists and people with a platform using the spotlight for good causes, instead of just showing off their wealth, cars, jewelry, and promoting drug use.
