Sport 2 Busy x Trap NY

So… states this Queens artist has an Atlanta flare to his music…Sport is A creative soul.

His affiliation with the popular Soul group and brand 1800StayBusy, which makes his influence very eccentric in many ways.

A genius in his own rite, Sport is playful but lethal with his lyrical wordplay… “Started on the benches,now I got two bishes frenchin”

Who else but Sport can drop such a statement and you’ll still ride out the beat with him until the end, because it’s so entertaining you want to hear more!

Chance the Rapper #MentalIssues 

Hip hop has always been an influential platform for all industries to use for their own agenda… So what do you say when “Health” comes into play with hip hop? 

Grammy award winning artist Chance the Rapper brings attention to the #1 issue swept under the rug in the Black Culture “Mental Health”

13.2 % of the U.S. population, or roughly 45.7 million people, identify themselves as Black or African American, according to 2014 U.S. Census Bureau numbers. Another 2.5% identified as multiracial. This represents an increase from 12.6 percent of the U.S. population, who identified themselves as Black/African-American in the 2010 Census. 

Of these findings, personally we believe in the power of love, peace, and encouragement is the cure to “Mental Issues” What do you all believe?

Here’s Chance the Rapper’s stance on the matter from Complex magazine: 

Are you an anxious person? Do you deal from anxiety?
Yeah, definitely. But I don’t know if it’s necessarily more than anybody else in the world. I think anxiety is also something that I’m just now being exposed to. A really big conversation and idea that I’m getting introduced to right now is black mental health. ‘Cause for a long time that wasn’t a thing that we talked about. I don’t remember it. I don’t remember people talking about anxiety; I don’t remember, when I was growing up, that really being a thing. Now I’m starting to get a better understanding of that part of my life, [ but] I’m scared of medication and shit like that. I’m cool with self [medication]—I like to smoke weed and shit, to chill out, but now that I’ve gone through so many different stages in a short period of time I’m not really trying to try no new drugs, even if they prescribed. I’m chilling.

You’ve talked about seeing friends literally die in front of you, and going to more funerals than a person should go to as a teenager. Do you see behavior after that and think it might be the result of—
Post-traumatic stress? 

Yeah. I think I could to a certain extent have PTSD. But, nah. I don’t got no PTSD. I’m chilling. I don’t ever want to convince myself that I’m hindered by any of my experiences. I also believe in G-O-D. Everything that’s happened in my life, [someone] already knows that that shit happened, and what’s going to happen, and put things in place for certain things to happen. So I can’t look at anything like this is a crippling event that happened in my life and now shit has changed. I don’t feel like that. Maybe it was supposed to happen, I don’t know.

There’s definitely a lot of things that have happened in my life that would cause me to think a certain way or feel a certain way. But I don’t label those experiences as traumatic events. They are events that were paradigm shifts in my life, but I don’t know if they cause a disadvantage.
