Snoop Dogg, a name long associated with marijuana, has made a startling announcement on Instagram: he’s quitting smoking. The news comes as a shock to his followers, as smoking has been a defining part of his image and career from the beginning.
The rapper’s statement, “After much consideration & conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke. Please respect my privacy at this time,” has left fans questioning its seriousness, especially given the timing isn’t aligned with April Fools’ Day.
Fans expressed disbelief in the comments, finding it hard to imagine Snoop without his signature habit, akin to separating yin from yang. Some speculate he might be switching to edibles as a lung-friendly alternative.
This isn’t the first time Snoop has attempted to quit; he briefly gave up smoking around the release of his 2002 album “Paid tha Cost to Be da Bo$$.” However, he soon returned to his usual ways during his Snoop Lion phase, admitting in an interview that quitting marijuana wasn’t feasible for him.
Contrasting with Snoop’s announcement, his ‘Mac & Devin’ colleague Wiz Khalifa recently revealed he’s increasing his smoking, opting to give up alcohol instead. While it remains uncertain if Snoop’s declaration is genuine, especially after he posted a photo of a full ashtray just a week ago, this could be a major lifestyle change for the rap icon. If Snoop Dogg is serious about quitting, it marks the end of an era, inviting fans to consider following in his footsteps possibly.
