Desiigners Struggle with Mental Health What We Need to Know

 

Desiigner, a Grammy-nominated rapper whose breakout hit "Panda" spent two weeks at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 in 2016, is taking time off his music career in order to focus on his mental wellbeing.

TMZ reports that Brooklyn-born artist Sidney Royel Selby III exposed himself on an international flight traveling back from Asia over the past weekend, prompting an upset flight attendant and ultimately being detained and interrogated by police before finally being released from custody in Minneapolis.

What is Desiigner’s Struggle with Mental Health?

Rapper who made his breakthrough hit "Panda" a two-week #1 hit on Billboard Hot 100 is currently facing mental health difficulties and an incident has arisen which involves him recently. A long list of incidents have plagued this Brooklyn native as he deals with mental illness issues.

Desiigner took to social media this week to announce he's leaving music behind to focus on his mental health. At 25 years old, Desiigner revealed he'd been struggling for months and felt ashamed about many things about himself; further indicating he will seek help at a mental health facility.

Emcee Joell Ortiz took to social media, where he addressed some of his fan's struggles and pledged his efforts in making sure we do not have any more negative stories to tell. Ortiz explained he is currently participating in a long term mental health program and will check himself into a medical facility to receive treatment.

Even though he is currently facing legal troubles, this isn't his first brush with law. On September 8th 2016, he was charged with misdemeanor drug and menacing charges in New York after brandishing a gun during a road rage incident.

However, those charges were eventually dropped following an agreement reached with his lawyers and, according to TMZ, he made the wise choice in seeking medical attention for his struggles with mental health.

TMZ was informed by a representative for the New York Police Department that rapper is currently receiving treatment for an unspecified mental health issue, reported as hospitalized while overseas due to prescribed medications which caused chemical imbalance and strange behavior while flying back.

On Monday afternoon, he arrived in Minneapolis and was met by local law enforcement, who interrogated him before eventually allowing him to leave of his own accord.

What Caused Desiigner to Expose Himself on a Flight?

Desiigner has quickly become one of the world's most beloved rappers with hits like "Panda" and "Tiimmy Turner" reaching multiple top 40 positions on Billboard Hot 100 charts. Additionally, his 2016 single earned him a Grammy nod as Best Rap Performance.

He boasts an extensive list of collaborators and has consistently released new music since 2017. Recently collaborating with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie on "PMR," as well as having an album set to release very soon.

Brooklyn-born rapper Earl Sweatshirt has been grappling with mental health for some time, and recently exposed himself on an airplane flight. On Thursday he took to Instagram Stories to explain what had occurred and urge fans for help.

According to TMZ, a 25-year-old rapper was on a flight back from Bangkok and Tokyo when he exposed himself and was immediately reprimanded by a flight attendant; once arriving back home in Minneapolis on Monday afternoon he was detained before eventually being released without charges.

No details have emerged as to the cause of Desiigner's sudden outburst; however, he suspects a negative reaction to medication prescribed for him, which caused his actions. According to TMZ reports, Desiigner has checked into a mental health facility for evaluation.

Desiigner released a statement to his fans on Thursday saying he is committed to seeking help for his mental health, and will put his career on hold while receiving care. Additionally, many upcoming shows and obligations will be cancelled while he receives care.

Though it may appear odd, it's common for rap artists to seek treatment when feeling down. And this wasn't Desiigner's first stint with treatment facilities either - in 2016, he was arrested in New York for misdemeanor drug and menacing charges, which were eventually dismissed when an agreement with his lawyers was reached between prosecutors.

Recent international performances for this 25-year-old included Rolling Loud Thailand alongside Cardi B, Chris Brown and Travis Scott; as well as one in Tokyo last month.

Why Is Desiigner Checking into a Mental Health Facility?

Those familiar with hip-hop might have come across Desiigner. He has gained massive popularity thanks to releasing "Panda," his song that catapulted him to stardom. But perhaps what's most intriguing about Desiigner is that he has struggled with mental health in the past.

After accidentally revealing himself during his return flight from Thailand and Tokyo, 25-year-old "Panda" artist has decided to enter a mental health facility for treatment. He says he has been experiencing difficulties with his mental health for some time, and hopes this step will enable him to recover faster.

According to TMZ, "Panda" rapper Sidney Royel Selby III exposed himself on an international flight returning from Asia while traveling between Thailand and Tokyo over the weekend. When flying back home to Minneapolis from this stopover trip, an incident took place when his plane stopped over Minnesota where it was met by law enforcement for questioning; upon landing, they released him without arrest or charge.

On Thursday, April 20, Desiigner posted to his Instagram Stories that he was both ashamed and vowing to get help for what had transpired. He explained that some medication he took overseas contributed to this incident and would now seek professional mental health help at an inpatient facility.

New York rapper Jay Electronica has admitted that he has been struggling with his mental health for months and wants to seek professional assistance to address any related issues. He encourages others who may also be experiencing difficulties to seek assistance immediately.

Desiigner had previously been accused of sexual predation. While no charges have been brought against him, he has decided to seek mental health help at an out-patient clinic.

On Wednesday, Brooklyn-based rapper Lil' Wayne issued an apology and pledged to seek help for his mental health. Additionally, he announced he will cancel all future shows or obligations until he feels better - an admirable move by any rapper! We wish him the best as we hope he gets all of the assistance he requires to heal himself.

What Do We Need to Know About Desiigner’s Struggle with Mental Health?

Desiigner, known for his collaborations with Migos rapper Takeoff and other hip-hop acts such as Gucci Mane and 21 Savage, appears to have his own issues within hip-hop circles. According to reports, Desiigner took to Instagram on Monday afternoon in order to reveal that he would check himself into a mental health facility after allegedly exposing himself on an international flight, according to TMZ.

"Panda" singer Rascal explained he was traveling back from Thailand when he allegedly let off some steam while on an airplane. Reprimanded by flight attendants, after landing he was interrogated by law enforcement but eventually released.

Desiigner recently cancelled all his shows in order to seek professional help for himself. On Instagram, he revealed his desire for change by telling fans he felt ashamed about his behavior and planned to check himself into a mental health facility in order to discover his next step forward.

However, "Timmy Turner" rapper still struggles with mental health and has been experiencing depression ever since he was a teenager. Additionally, he revealed he takes medication to treat both anxiety and depression.

He noted that he's also receiving cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. Although this was his first encounter with mental health issues, as he had been arrested previously for menacing in the home and misdemeanor drug charges.

A sexy rapper recently explained to his fans that his recent unorthodox behavior may be caused by some kind of chemical imbalance brought on by medication he took while abroad, according to TMZ reports. Although they could not identify what exactly they took (sources indicate it may have been something like stimulant medication), his acting up led social workers to monitor his progress closely, according to TMZ reports.
