Speaking in the latest episode of the ‘In My Opinion’ podcast, Shmurda said: “I don’t smoke igbo [weed]. I used to but I started having anxieties smoking weed. I started getting scared of the future.



“So, four years ago, I stopped smoking weed. I just take cigarettes and liquor.”


He said contrary to claims that smoking weed boosts creativity, “it wasn’t helping the creativity in my case.”


“Everything I was doing when I was smoking weed, I was having anxieties. At a point, it was affecting me in the studio. I would just be lost in the middle. It wasn’t working anymore. I just have to stop. That was earlier in my career. It wasn’t helping.”
