” 2 months, 7 days no weed smoke,”
the rapper initially posted on his Instagram story on March 7th. After several fans began clamoring for more answers, Bada$$ once again took to the ‘gram to explain, in detail, about his decision to quit toking.
For decades, rap music and smoking weed have essentially gone hand in hand. Take Joey Bada$$.
The 23-year-old rapper recently admitted on his Instagram that he will no longer be taking part in the green. He hasn’t even had a puff in over two months.
” 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.”
Bada$$ also said he felt that it was somewhat hindering his motivation and drive to be one of the very best, and felt like he had to take a break. At the very least until he’s comfortable, career-wise.
When discussing the ever-changing landscape of the legal weed industry, Bada$$ warned his fans of potential hidden agendas from our government.
At the very least, for the time being.
The rapper discussed his conspiracy, which, as explained by Bada$$ could be a ploy to control the masses.
While it certainly commendable for Bada$$ to further focus on his career, the jury is still out on whether or not weed actually affects motivation.
” Truth is I never seen myself smoking past 21. I been smoking everyday since 16, I am now 23, so I just took the new year as an opportunity to stop,” the rapper explained.
” 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 said.
He still enjoys accompanying his friends while they partake, and he even went as far to say he will have no issues starting back up once he’s “chilling in that multi-million dollar villa.”
Bada$$ did have one interesting tidbit in his Instagram rant.
” Look it up and ‘STAY WOKE.'”.
Either way, smoking weed has always been a preference-thing amongst non-tokers and tokers alike, and the same goes for Joey Bada$$.
Despite his profound new view on weed, the rapper still doesn’t view weed in a negative light.
” Why you think weed is becoming legal everywhere? Not just because it’s lucrative, but it’s now being used as a control tactic,” the 23-year-old claimed.
Studies have said that it does slightly affect the regular dopamine levels of humans, which could cause apathy, but results generally vary.
