MADCHILD of Vancouver based Swollen Members, was on a kamikaze run with the drug Oxycontin that had pushed him to the brink of oblivion. Throughout the next year as he struggled to take back his life from prescription pills, Madchild discovered his personal sanctuary in the arms of his music.
For the next 10 months, Madchild feverishly wrote and recorded his first ever solo album “Dope Sick”.
“Dope Sick” was inspired by Madchild’s battle with addiction and offers fans an open look at the cold realities of drug abuse. The album shows Madchild back on the top of his game tackling everything from his addiction and his recent ban from the United States, to the current state of hip-hop.
