Episode 121: Jermaine Tolbert - The Genius Behind Crazy

By Aaron Static Render:

Recording artist and author Jermaine Tolbert, A.K.A. Nate Calloway, joins me on Uncontained. Jermaine performed on the Scream Tour with Hamilton Park, Diggy Simons, Mindless Behavior, OMG Girls, and New Boys; and was on the verge of signing a recording contract as a member of the group 3D with singer and producer Pharrell Williams. Unfortunately, he had to walk away from the contract at the last second because he developed schizophrenia and had to take care of himself. With the stigma of mental illness he did not feel comfortable telling people why he had to walk away. Jermaine withdrew himself from everybody, cut off all contact with everyone in the recording industry, friends, and even family. This is the story of how he got his schizophrenia under control, dealt with the stigma, what he took from the common phrase "knowledge is power," and what inspired him to write about his experiences in his upcoming book Remind Me To Think: the Genius Behind Crazy.
