As we continue shedding light on mental health in the black community, it’s important touch on all the sub cultures of black communities. We’re going to dive into trap culture (much different from the “hood”). The “hood” can be the set you claim, the neighborhood you grew up in, but trap is where the killaz (killaz are not always murders) and drug dealers dwell. It’s where poverty , prostitution and drug addiction is the norm and perfectly acceptable. We’re gonna dive into the thought process of gangstas from the trap. Gangsters witness and endure a lot of trauma so much that they begin to normalize it and become numb to it. They get trapped in the dangerous cycle and the only way tended to be prison of death. In this episode we talk to Skin. He describes his upbringing and how he got involved in the trap life. His story is amazing. It's all about perseverance and resilience. We hope you enjoy.
