Mental health is essential through every stage of our lives, as it encompasses our psychological, social and emotional well-being. Ultimately, it alters how we act, think, and feel, while helping to regulate how we make choices, deal with stress, and relate to others. Trevor Lee knows this all too well. As a result, the Houston bred, Huntsville, Alabama based rapper and social media sensation aims to open eyes, ears and hearts, as he sheds light on these factors with his cognizant new single “Fadin”.
Exploring topics such as depression, anxiety and suicide. “Fadin”, combines Lee’s personal experiences with personal lessons and experiences about gaining back mental control over his life when everything around him seems out of sync. Additionally, the song serves as a subliminal cry for help for those who feel like their anxiety is more of a burden to others than it is for themselves. With lyrics such as “Don’t give me advice when you can’t relate. Just ‘being there’ is what keeps many from going over the edge.”, Lee urges listeners to simply keep a light on.
In honor of World Mental Health Day, Lee has teamed up with fellow Huntsville artist Victoria Jones to spread the word. Both artists share the common ability to both enlighten and uplift their listeners, as they prove that no matter how hard things get for them personally, they will always use their experiences to provide empathy for those dealing with similar scenarios.
Jones, whose vision was the motivation behind the song’s creation, originally sent the song to Lee through a voice memo. Aware of Lee’s transparency regarding his personal battles with anxiety, she felt that he would be the right one to bring the song to life. The accompanying music video takes a nostalgic stroll through both of their personal lives.
As rising star in his own right, Lee has gained praise from both The Source and The Hype Magazine among others. He has also shared the stage with Tobe Nwigwe, Bun B and Tedashi to name a few. Currently, Lee is forging a partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, with which he hopes to play his part in spreading mental health awareness through his own transparency.
