Joe Budden Sheds A Couple Tears On Everyday Struggle
Styles P and his wife went on The Breakfast Club and discussed in detail his daughter committing suicide, and saddened everyone shedding some tears in the process. On Tuesday’s episode of Everyday Struggle, the group watched the footage of Styles breaking down, and that, in turn, caused Joe Budden to get emotional as well.
Budden has been very open and about his struggles with mental illness in the past and in the present, so it’s obvious that this struck a chord with him. Both Joe and Akademiks agree that it’s good to see such “tough” rappers shedding their hard exterior to discuss issues like this, because it can get rid of the stigma and help others going through the same thing.
Styles, in the interview, sort of makes it clear that him and his wife blame themselves for not knowing that their daughter was suicidal. Joe goes off of that and emphasizes the fact that you can never really “know” when someone is struggling with a mental illness, and more people need to openly discuss it. Especially in rap.
