Logic Has a Message for Those Suffering From Survivor's Guilt: 'There Is a Light at the End of the Tunnel'
Three apparent suicides in March have sparked a nationwide conversation surrounding the dangers of survivor's guilt. With Logic having crafted the Grammy-nominated "1-800-273-8255" suicide-prevention anthem, TMZ caught up with the rapper on Tuesday night to get his thoughts on the hot-button topic.
Logic had a touching message to those suffering from survivor's guilt of any tragedy. "There is a light at the end of the tunnel that sometimes you cannot see," he said. "I've been there. It's really hard to deal with. Just imagine feeling like you're completely in darkness. Just keep going. You have to keep going and surround yourself with positivity and love. Go make friends and do what you love in life."
The DMV native went on to say that he has a project coming out soon that will address survivor's guilt in some form. "I have an album coming out called Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, where I talk about it. It's not really like a song. This next album deals with social media," Logic explained. "How we view the world and the negative aspect of it. Not searching for acceptance in likes, but searching for acceptance within yourself."
The three apparent suicides that sparked this conversation include two Parkland shooting survivors -- Sydney Aiello and Calvin Desir -- and Jeremy Richman, whose daughter Avielle was killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.
Earlier in the week, Logic released his first novel Supermarket, which has soared to No. 1 on Amazon's best-selling books list. Listen to the 29-year-old's message to victims of survivor's guilt below.
