Pook Hustle will make a lasting impression on new single “Mental Health”

Pook Hustle is back, and wants to make a lasting positive impact with his new single “Mental Health.” The single encourages people to open up with their mental health issues. Musically, “Mental Health” is a warm offering that features grooving drums, heartwarming synths and smooth backing vocals. On top, his softly-penned vocals come drenched in R&B sensibilities, working hand in glove with emotional lyrics.

Speaking about the single, he says: “At the time of making this record, I was just beginning to process the past year of my life. At the beginning of the pandemic, I went through a rough break up & got furloughed from my job in a 2 week span. If that wasn’t enough, that same winter I had to live without heat & water because of hostile landlords opting to use shady tactics to force me & my family out of the Brooklyn apartment we’ve made home since 1997. 

Sticking true to my name (Hustle), I kept recording “Hustle Mode” & releasing music through it all but in order to survive, I had to find a bright spot somewhere. I turned to therapy for the first time in 2021 & it was an essential part in me coping with the trauma I faced. I’m powerful but I know me being vulnerable will lead others to being more transparent & getting help because no matter how strong you are, we all do.

With “Hustle” as a second name, Pook Hustle is sure to make 2023 his year. The past couple of years have already been successful, with him releasing three critically-acclaimed singles and recording a well-received music video to name a few.
