Rapper J Molley's music has become associated with the dark subjects of depression and mental health, but the youngster is ready to sing happier songs. He says after his spiritual awakening, he's on a different path.
J Molley addressed the issues of mental illness and depression in his songs and he became an advocate of sorts for mental health problems.
The young rapper embraced addressing these issues in his music but is now ready to sing more cheerful songs.
However, the 20-year-old won't stop tackling important issues like depression, as reported on by TimesLIVE.
J Molley is just ready for a different path after what he calls his 'spiritual awakening'.
"After my spiritual awakening last year, I’ve been on a whole different path. I realised that all the negative thoughts and emotions I had were due to my negative subconscious mind, and that it’s just a product of the human ego.
"So I realised none of the fears and worries were real, they were all self-created - and they slowly fell away."
These are deep words from such a young man.
"I’ve always known that life is not about what happens to you or what you go through; it’s how you see it - your perspective. So it’s absolutely necessary for your mental health to be good in order to have a proper, positive perspective."
Briefly.co.za learnt that the rapper always felt that mental health wasn't getting enough attention and that's why he used his music to talk about it.
"I just always felt like there was never enough information and help and compassion toward the subject. So I wanted to change that."
J Molley's fans can expect new music from him soon - as well as some collaborations.
On top of that, he also plans to help raise awareness of mental health problems and engage with South Africa's youth.
