Sammus' hip-hop song about depression and suicidal thoughts that made me cry

Sammus' hip-hop song about depression and suicidal thoughts that made me cry

There’s no crying in hip-hop. Especially not at a concert.

But there I was, standing at the back of a cramped venue at this year's South by Southwest festival, doing just that. I don’t like crying in public, so it wasn’t much solace that a good half of the room was doing the same thing.

Including the person on the stage.

Sammus, a rapper from Ithaca, N.Y., was performing “1080p,” which was at that point her newest single. I’d already watched the video about 10 times that morning.
