5 Rappers Who Got Sober
Pusha T Hypes Desiigner's Imminent "Timmy Turner" Single With New Artwork
Desiigner says the single is only "steps away".
Five rappers who kicked their drug and alcohol habits.
As it turns out, Gucci got sober over the course of his 39-month prison stint. "I felt like I couldn’t make music sober, I couldn’t enjoy my money sober," he said in a New York Times feature published Wednesday morning. "Why would I wanna go to a club and couldn’t smoke or drink? I felt like sex wouldn’t be good sober. I associated everything with being high. In hindsight I see it for what it was: I was a drug addict. “I was naïve to the fact that I was numb."
"I can’t say I felt happy my last six, seven years in the music business," he continued. "I was just numb. You told me that I was doing good or told me I was doing bad, you hated me or loved me, either which way I greeted with nonchalance. It was sincere nonchalance — like, I really didn’t care."
Salute to Gucci for sobering up. Here are five rappers more rappers who have kicked their own drug and alcohol habits.
