“Unlike established nonprofits or even 12-step programs, the community meetings at the Echoplex are aimed at attracting a crowd of music fans who might not otherwise consider themselves drug addicts in need of counseling” shared The Los Angeles Times in a recent feature on the event. Sirah shared in that same feature that “It’s so crucial to let people know that, yeah, I’ve won a Grammy and I’ve done really well and I’ve been rapping and I have songs with Demi [Lovato] and Skrillex and Lupe Fiasco, but like right now, I’ve got depression.” She continued on by saying “Drugs have killed a lot of our favorite artists…I think we’re tired of it.”
