17 year old Austin Rappers Talk about Drug Abuse & Healthcare

Who said young people are apathetic and apolitical? perhaps they need to visit Austin , Texas and speak to these two brothers. We caught up with Bluejay and Battle , two 17 year old members of the Austin rap group The Cipher. They talked to us about challenges they face everyday dealing with absentee parents, the lure of drugs and a crumbling healthcare system that needs to be overhauled. Battle talks about how his mother is sick and can’t get the help she needs leaving him to dfend for himself and her.
