Professor Green Opens Up About His Well-Being In Emotional Instagram Post

Professor Green has been very honest in his latest social media post...

Professor Green has never been known to shy away from talking about real, honest issues.

And the rapper’s latest Instagram post is no different…

Alongside a mirror selfie, Professor Green – real name Stephen Manderson – opened up candidly about how he’s been doing, and how fame is not all it seems.

The caption began: ‘There’s no after pic yet, this is the beginning of the journey. People are shlags and only post a view into their (often unrealistic) ‘perfect world’.’

Stephen continued: ‘I’ve been a shlag to all things bad; a shlag to my depression, a shlag to drink, a shlag to the sesh, a shlag to not creating, a shlag to distracting myself from the one thing that truly makes me happy – music. I’ve been a shlag to EVERYTHING NEGATIVE.’

The rapper discussed his surgery: ‘After surgery going wrong this year it slumped me, I look and feel like s**t. If I still look like this in 6 months then I’ve failed. If there hasn’t been a whole load of new music then I’ve failed. No one is going to sort me out for me, so I figured it’s probably time I did it for myself.’

Thank you to everyone who came last night, it was a glorious homecoming, and for such a good cause #transformtrauma
