RiFF RAFF warns fans of using cocaine due to the fentanyl epidemic.
RiFF RAFF is known for his wild antics just as much as his music. His shows are known for being massive parties and he was previously open about his use of substances. His cocaine use was well-documented in the past, including an infamous video of pausing a freestyle to snort a line then continuing to rap. In 2014, he vouched that he'd be quitting both cocaine and molly but would continue to smoke weed. However, he recently hit Twitter to reveal that he'll be giving up the drug for good.
RiFF RAFF took to Twitter to tell fans that he's not doing cocaine anymore and suggested that no one else does either. The rapper warned his fans about the risks of using cocaine especially right now with the fentanyl epidemic.
"PSA: DONT DO COCAiNE ANYMORE, ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE BEiNG SOLD FENTANYL (A DEADLY DRUG) MiXED iN WiTH THERE BAGS OF COCAiNE ... SO FOR THAT REASON iM OUT .." he wrote on Twitter, "YOU SHOULDNT PLAY WiTH YOUR LiFE WE HAVE A BRiGHT FUTURE LETS ENJOY THE FRESH AiR WiTH VERSACE NOSTRiLS AND A CLEAR BRAiN."
The fentanyl epidemic has been prominent in recent times and has been especially after the death of Lil Peep. The toxicology report came in at the top of December and confirmed Peep's cause of death was from an overdose of Xanax and fentanyl. In September, the New York Times reported that deaths from fentanyl have rose immensely in the U.S. in 2016.
