As many of my readers know, I'm a very avid listener of music. I actually listen to music so much that I'm always seen with a pair of headphones and never leave my house without them.
Not only do I listen to regular music, I also have a classically trained voice and can play three different instruments at an intermediate level (Clarinet, French Horn, Bass Clarinet). You can honestly say that I have what we call a "music addiction." Now, what if the songs I've listened to were actually drugs. Well...
1. Bryson Tiller - "Right My Wrongs": Valium
Valium is a very potent drug used to treat anxiety disorders. Overdosing can lead to serious death. This song will give you feelings and sensations that don't even exist. Too much of this song may lead to increased sadness, crying, and multiple Netflix binges.
2. System of A Down - "Chop Suey": Crack Cocaine
Cocaine is one of the most addictive substances in the United States, known to be a very popular stimulant in the drug world. This song needs no explanation for those who know. For those who don't know, you're in for a treat.
3. Chance The Rapper - "No Problem": Dopamine
Dopamine is the "happy" neurotransmitter, sending signals to the brain at a rapid pace. This song is the epitome of happiness and carefree will. There's a whole lot of Dopamine in this one.

6. Isaiah Rashad - "4r Da Squaw": Marijuana
Marijuana is very popular drug amongst teenagers and adults alike, looking for that "high" feeling caused by the cannabinoid THC. You'd definitely want to smoke to this song.
