The opioid crisis has dominated the 24 hour news cycle for much of 2019. The issue came to the forefront against earlier this month after the death of The recent death of rapper Juice Wrld from an apparent overdose of percocet. Journalist and cultural critic, Jemele Hill, suggested there needed to be an industry discussion about the drug culture – weed, opiates surrounding young artists:

Trump And The Global Economy (“Trump And The GE”) couldn’t agree more. Trump And The GE Parses The Opioid Crisis in November took place in the NYC and featured Shock Exchange, Brooklyn Land Baron and Torian Mitchel. Below is an excerpt:

At the 13 minute mark of the above video Shock Exchange goes in:

The number of accidental deaths are rising at an alarming rate and drug overdoses … number of accidental deaths have surpassed car accidents … The number of accidental deaths are being driven by drug overdoses. Of the drug overdoses, opioids are driving those … Of the opioid-related deaths, if you bifurcate fentanyl … fentanyl is its own entity and fentanyl is probably the strongest opioid out there …

They think it’s a proliferation of opioid prescriptions that’s driving the opioid crisis because the prescriptions are also going through the roof. It’s a popular narrative out there … now doctors have been pushed to prescribe more drugs … the narrative is that little Bobby had a toothache and he was prescribed opioids … now when the doctor cut him off he became addicted to opioid and now he turned to heroin.

Hill’s comments were a de-facto co-sign for Trump And The GE, which already covered the opioid crisis and the penchant for artists like Future and Lil Wayne to celebrate drug use, opioids, molly and percocet. We really appreciate the publicity.
