KB Uses Hip Hop to Address Mental Illness and Suicide

Reach Records’ award-winning CHH artist, KB, released a stunning new music video for ‘Drowning’, the fourth single from his 2015 album, ‘Tomorrow We Live’.

Drowning’ represents the overwhelming and helpless feeling that people suffer from when struggling with things such as mental illness, drug addiction and suicidal tendencies. The song is meant to encourage those feeling underwater; KB explains: “It is about turning to God to lift you up out of those dark situations.”

Tomorrow We Live’ is the second album from KB. At the time of its release, the album debuted on the US Billboard Charts at No 4 on Rap Albums, No 1 on Christian Albums, No 2 on Independent Albums, No 7 on Overall Albums, and No 18 on the coveted Billboard 200.

Following on from the album’s success, KB is also launching a #TomorrowWeLive social media campaign, aimed at supporting friends and family members who suffer from mental illness, suicidal thoughts and addiction, asking: “What would you say to a friend, if you knew they were on the verge of drowning?” KB is calling out to fans to inspire a loved one and write a note on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #TomorrowWeLive.
