Most rappers smoke a lot of weed, it’s essentially become the choice vice for most of them. Over the years, people in general have felt more comfortable being open about their use. However, there comes a time for most smokers when they feel it’s time to stop hitting the blunt. Joey Bada$$ recently hit his Instagram story to reveal that he quit smoking weed. While his fans had questions, the rapper gave multiple reasons why he decided to quit.
Last night, Joey hit his Instagram to reveal that he’s been weed-free for two months and a weed. This came to news to a lot of people so his fans started asking him a bunch of questions on the decision. Instead of individually replying, he hit his Instagram story to give a lengthy response to all the questions that were being asked. The rapper revealed that he quit smoking in the new year and that he never had any intention of smoking weed past the age of 21.
“I feel like smoking is for older people who have worked a long time and are looking to relax. Not for young people who have a lot more to accomplish and can’t afford anything slowing them down from getting to their destination.” He wrote, “I get it though a lot of you think you need it to cop w the stress trust me I been there, But, meditation is much better.”
He’s not against smoking weed, in fact, he explained that it acts as a new type of incense for him. He enjoys when his friends smoke but he won’t partake until he’s “chilling in that multi million dollar villa” that he lives at in his dreams.
What might be the most interesting part of his explanation is the end. He explained that the weed is now genetically modifying people’s DNA.
“Why you think it’s becoming legal everywhere? Not just ’cause it’s lucrative, but it’s now ebing used as a control tactic. Look it up and “STAY WOKE”.”
Regardless of his reasoning, it’s for the best and with his newly launched podcast as well as his focus on the rest of the Pro Era members, he’s definitely out here putting in work with no time to relax.
