While speaking with The Masked Gorilla, Amick opened up about his own mental health struggles.
“I was super depressed, you know, I still feel some type of way sometimes but for the most part I’m straight now, but I just needed an outlet,” he said in 2017. “I’ve always wanted to rap. I remember just sitting in the lifeguard stand, the entire summer, 8 hours a day or longer and just sitting down and I was like ‘this sucks, I want to do something with my life.’”
His final tweet was a screenshot of Ray Daniels asking fellow musicians to reach out to those who may be suffering from depression.
