Check Out the Powerful Music Video for Macklemore's New Song - DRUG DEALER

Posted on 28 October 2016


Probably the most powerful representation of what addiction looks like from any music artist ever.

Macklemore has always been open about drugs, addiction and recovery. I admire the way he didn't use any graphic or sensationalized imagery in the video. Just an open and honest look at what it feels like to withdrawal.

    We are Stay Stopped United we are a nonprofit organization providing peer support to military veterans committed to long-term recovery. Celebrities living in recovery really do inspire us. These videos and documentaries really have a strong voice in society I would love to see more.

    On a side note we have created a recovery Lifestyle brand as well maybe we can collaborate with each other in an effort to raise funds for more aftercare programs for Veterans.

    I shared this last night as well. It hit so close to home for me. I knew that situation all to well. He’s an amazing lyricist and shows addiction in its raw form. I didn’t find out until I was in treatment that he was in recovery as well. His other two songs “Other Side” and “Starting Over” are just as powerful. Definitely worth watching the videos. Also a documentary on Netflix about it him, if I’m not mistaken.

    Holy Ghost is another documentary that features Brian “Head” Welch from Korn that shows his overcoming addiction to meth. I love the openness with celebrities in recovery!! ❤️
