London: A new study has claimed that listening to rap music can help combat mental health issues.

Experts believe that music made by hip-hop artists could be used to help sufferers of conditions such as schizophrenia and depression, the Daily Star reported.

According to scientists at Cambridge University, hip-hop music showed an awareness of issues connected with mental health.

Brain experts asserted that songs like Eminem's 'Stan' or Pharrell Williams' ' Happy' contained messages about mental health.
