10 Black Celebrities You May Not Know Suffer From Depression
Lamar has been rocketing up the hip-hop totem pole, and fans celebrate his complex rhyme schemes and creative song concepts, but even this young star has battled with depression. The 27-year-old rapper recently opened up about his struggles with depression throughout his life and his hopes that his music will help younger generations deal with their own feelings of depression.

“I was feeling so sad all the time, and I couldn’t shake it,” she said nearly seven years ago. “I started burying my feelings, and it got to a point where I couldn’t even tell my family or my friends, ‘I’m twisted,’ or ‘I’m exhausted,’ or ‘I’m so angry.’ … I became a master of putting up the wall so that I was unreadable.”
