What was the inspiration behind the new single Attempted Suicide with young noble featuring Atkual?

Deuce Deuce
Over the past few years, four good friends of mine committed suicide. I had no idea they were suffering from depression. Each one of them right after each other. Two of them were sisters. One had lost her daughter to violence at the young age of 17. Her brother had been shot and killed by police. She was the first one to commit suicide. At first like anyone else, my thought was she was selfish. Then I sat and thought about it and realized she was suffering ann feeling like no one understood her pain. I was inspired from all four of them. Just always seeing on the news kids committing suicide from being bullied. It’s a serious topic that affects us all. I don’t feel like people talk about it enough.

Sorry to hear that. What do you think are the reasons many keep it in when they’re feeling depressed? Do you think it might because they feel they’ll come off as weak?

Deuce Deuce
Most Definitely. Weak and most people have this “I’m fine” persona. They don’t want people looking down on them or as you just said “Weak”. A lot a people bottle up they feelings, their emotions. I did it as a young kid. I was mad. I found my outlet. Music. A lot of people don’t have a outlet and they don’t feel comfortable just opening up to anybody. Even with the fear of it being held against them.

Do you feel this is even more true in the Hiphop culture where many put up a front and feel they can’t speak whether its the artists, the fans etc.

Deuce Deuce
Absolutely bro. As I said before the majority of people think they will be looked at as weak or less of a person if they open up about how they’re feeling. Another thing is people don’t know how to deal with the stress and depression so they run to drugs, alcohol etc. Prescription drugs to try and numb and suppress their pain which will lead to overdose. Also I know a more than just a few people who have died this way in past few years. That I didn’t even know they was all in to pills etc.

What’s the best advice you can possibly give someone in these type of situations?

Deuce Deuce
Talk to someone that you feel comfortable with. Give people a chance. People care more then you think, they do. If you feel uncomfortable talking to someone u know for fear of judgement they might pass on you, talk to a professional therapist, there is suicide hotline numbers where u don’t even have give your name. Point is you can always find someone who will listen. Don’t ever give up. There is always a brighter day!! Think positive. Ending your own life is not the answer. People care. I care.
