BOSS Sports | Meek Mill’s Music Used as Therapy for Black Youth

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Rap music is a diverse genre that divided by its own sub genres as well as regions and sometimes moods. While the latter is definitely relatable to serious rap fans, the American Psychological Association believes there is some substance to that usage. Recently the APA published an article about a study on rap music and how it affects black youth and their subject was none other than Meek Mill.

The study was conducted by doctoral candidate Cendrine Robinson, who became a therapist for young teen boys, mostly black, that were on probation. She stumbled upon the idea of hip hop therapy by reading different books and earlier studies. Robinson recollected the research after she was making slow progress with getting through to the teens and soon discovered some of the artists that the boys were listening to. One day, while at home, she overheard lyrics from the “Dreams and Nightmares” album her husband was playing and decided to look more into the music. In the article, Robinson examines the content from Mill’s album, which includes numerous references to his father being killed and the affect it has had on him.
