‘The Therapist’ Talks To Joey Bada$$ (Video)

All is love…

But sometimes we are just too far down to feel its warmth. We need help sometimes. Sometimes, we need help to learn that we need help in that way.

I like the way the doc inches into the depths with Joey at the start. Joey being allowed to talk. Talking to somebody, esp. a professional, is a good thing… that can bring us back to better things (like full wellness and good mental/emotional health).

Joey Bada$$ grapples with the suicide of friend and fellow rapper, Capital Steez.

Without question, the loss of Violator founder and CEO Chris Lighty left us in the Hip-Hop world saddened… stunned… and puzzled. What could have led Chris to commit suicide. It has been echoed by several long-time associates that it just did not seem likely that Chris would take his own life. Well, at the request of Chris’ mom, 50 Cent has brought his star power and resources to bare; hiring a high-powered legal team to drive an investigation on the particulars of this tragic case. This should bring truth to light… and answers to questions. Linked after the jump, the article by Fox 5’s (NYC) Lisa Evers highlights some points for concern: Chris was NOT likely suffering financially (often a driver for suicidal depression); and for someone still in his 30s, he was VERY well prepared in end-of-life matters. One such preparation the article notes was that, save a relatively modest set-aside for his kids, Chris’ entire fortune would pass to his widow – with whom he was said to have argued with just before his demise. Moreover, autopsy results have not shown anything… other than the cause of death was a gunshot wound. Other facts of the are still being gathered.
