Chance the Rapper opens up in interview about battling anxiety

Chance the Rapper graces the latest cover of Complex magazine and speaks out about suffering from anxiety in a brand new video interview.

Chance said: “Anxiety is now something that I’m just getting exposed to, it’s a big conversation and idea that I’m getting introduced to now.

“For a long time that wasn’t a thing that we talked about, I don’t remember people talking about it… when I was growing up… I’m starting to get a better understanding of that part of my life.

“I’m kind of scared of medication. I’m cool with self-medication. I like to smoke weed and shit to chill out. But now that I’ve gone through so many different stages in a short period of time, like really just high school through now, I’m not really trying to try no new drugs, even if they’re prescribed. I’m chilling.”

The 'Acid Rap' artist has admitted that due to the death of close friends, he could also be suffering from PTSD, but he doesnt want to tell himself that he is hindered by anything, because he also believes in God.
