Snoop Dogg has revealed what he meant when he said he was giving up 'smoke'.
Fans of the rapper flooded to his social media in surprise, but quick to support him seemingly giving up smoking weed.
Alas, the rapper has since taken to his platforms to share a video which explains just what he meant when he made the alleged revelation.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday (16 November), Snoop uploaded a black and white image of himself alongside a signed statement.
The statement reads: "After much consideration and conversation with my family, I've decided to give up smoke.
"Please respect my privacy at this time."
The statement rocked fans of the rapper - Snoop did hire a full-time blunt roller and smoked nine blunts in a day after all - who cheered him on each day after the announcement, congratulating him on kicking the habit.
However, for those of us who smelt a rat - or should I say, a bit of pot - Snoop's apparent revelation was indeed too radical to be true.
Instead of Snoop stating he was giving up 'smoke' being about the musician giving up smoking weed, it turns out it was all a clever marketing ploy.
In a post to his social media accounts earlier today (20 November), he shared a video of himself.
In the clip, he says: "I have an announcement. I'm giving up smoke. I know what you're thinking, 'Snoop? Smoke is kinda your whole thing?'
"But I'm done with it. I'm done with [...] my clothes smelling all sticky icky. I'm going smokeless. Solo Stove fixed fire, they take out the smoke, clever."
So, there we have it.
Snoop hasn't actually vowed to never light up a spliff ever again, he's just vowed to not use a fire pit which makes his clothes smell of smoke.
And people are flooding to the post to weigh in on the ad trickery.
One X user said: "Bro had the worlds stoners questioning their life choices for this ad."
"I knew that wording was strange! 'Smoke' not 'smoking' lol! Nice!" Another commented.
However, a third wasn't quite as impressed: "Come on Unc... All this for an ad?"
And a fourth resolved: "Good to know you still high asf at the end."
So, it looks like Snoop will get to smoke another day.
