Snoop Dogg has spoken out after revealing he's giving up 'smoke'.
Despite there only being one person on earth who he thinks could out-smoke him and the rapper hiring a full-time blunt roller, Snoop Dogg - real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. - has revealed he's stopping smoking weed.
In 2022, Snoop clarified how many spliffs he used to smoke a day after Renegade Prianha came forward claiming she was his 'personal blunt roller' and that he smoked between 75 and 150 joints per day.
Snoop quickly took to social media to correct the statement, sharing a recording of nine roaches.
And while nine may seem a lot to the non-smokers among us, Snoop had certainly cut down from 2013 - the musician taking to X - previously known as Twitter - claiming he smoked 81 blunts in a day.
However, he's now decided to give up the 'smoke' completely, taking to Instagram yesterday (16 November) to upload 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."
Snoop received an influx of comments from fans and friends.
One Instagram user wrote: "Smoking a blunt with U wayyyy back in the day is one of my favorite memories… I’m happy for U Snoop!!!"
Another wrote: "Congratulations. I’m sure this is difficult. And it’s part of your brand and I’m sure you enjoyed it.
"But your extraordinary talent isn’t hindered or expanded by the absence or a presence of this cultural habit.
"You are bigger than smoke. You always have been. Onward! Best wishes. e. #icon."
In a follow-up post, Snoop shared an image of himself looking at the camera.
The caption reads: "Respect my privacy."
The musician has turned the comments off on his post, however fans have still flooded to the post in support, the image gaining over one million likes.
