Last year, VICELAND introduced one of the more interesting segments I’ve ever seen on the Internet. Around the time of YG’s Still Brazy album release, they had him talk to a therapist. Fo Hunnid opened up about being shot in 2015 and the effects and trauma it had on life afterward.
This year, the network has turned the segment into a whole show called The Therapist. The same therapist used for YG’s interview — Siri Sat Nam Singh — will be used for the show, and it’ll feature musicians opening up “to discover what lies beneath their public personas.” It’s all filmed, too, and aired on the station.
Monday night, the first episode of The Therapist aired with Freddie Gibbs, who’s certainly faced his fair share of trauma in life, especially over the last year after being accused of and detained for sexual assault charges in Austria.
Singh and Gibbs dove into the charges and how it did – and still does — affect his life. He also admitted that talking to Signh, a black man, about it was comforting, because he knew Singh could understand that being accused of raping someone when he didn’t was racial in the first place.
