The world of hip-hop experienced a surprise this week as Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus Jr., a well-known proponent of marijuana, declared he will stop his smoking habits. This announcement has influenced another iconic figure, Meek Mill, who is also contemplating a similar lifestyle shift.
Snoop Dogg broke the news to his followers in a heartfelt Instagram post where he stated, “After thoughtful deliberation and discussions with my family, I’ve chosen to quit smoking. I kindly ask for your understanding and respect for my privacy during this period.”
The post garnered widespread attention and quickly became a trending topic across various social media platforms. As a key contributor to Dr. Dre’s groundbreaking 1992 album, ‘The Chronic,’ Snoop’s declaration sparked a lively debate about cannabis consumption.
In response to the news, Meek Mill voiced his thoughts on X platform, reacting to Snoop Dogg’s decision to quit smoking, a habit for which he is arguably the most famous ambassador in the world.
