JUS10 Talks Artist Mental Health and New Album “God Happened” With 2AM

On this episode of 2AM, Maryland rapper JUS10 joins his brother, Brian, to talk about artist mental health. We also got some details about his upcoming album, God Happened.

The conversation was brought about after industry star Teyana Taylor made comments about mental health concerns. “At this point, I can’t let this kill me,” Taylor shared on her Instagram Live just before her 30th birthday.

“Granted, to my fans, I think that, you know — and I can see how my message can come across but at the same time — I feel like it’s a tiny bit selfish to say, ‘What about your fans? Do it for your fans.’ Baby, I gotta do it for my mental health. I have to do it for my emotional health. I have to do it for my kids so I can stay alive for my kids.”

When asked about Taylor’s comments JUS10 responded, “I think it was facts. I feel like every creative I know struggles mentally with their craft.” Given the taboo topic of social media’s effect on artist mental health, how we spread our social footprint could become a depressing journey.

God Happened‘s Arrival

JUS10 opened up about his upcoming album God Happened and even left us with an expected release date of Q1 2021.

The Maryland artist maintains that the project came together in the midst of 2020’s struggles. He’s got several featured artists on the track including Sya, Ty Thom, DC DNice, and others. “Another personal step I had to take too was being open to people when it comes to music,” JUS10 shared when asked about his process for building features.
