 Gunplay Comes Clean On Drug Addiction Battles: "I Was On Cocaine Since Like, 10, 12 Years"

"I was on cocaine since, like, 10 years, 12 years, something like that. I wasn't junktified where I was stealing stuff and stuff like that, but it was my thing," he said when he appeared on "RapFix Live" on Wednesday. "I have a strong will. I quit cigarettes early this year, cold turkey. Whatever I put my mind to, whatever I wanna do, I'm strong like that. If I wanted to quit smoking refer -- it's nothing."

Gun says his moment of clarity came several years ago and after a bit of self-reflection he decided to leave coke alone. "That happened Memorial [Day] Weekend 2008," he recalled. "I was on the beach, I was just goin' hard and just took my last blast and said, 'Man, I'm tired of my nose hurtin', tired of looking all drawed up." Without the drug, Gunplay said he now sees a difference in his music as well. "The drugs just enhance what you're thinking but when you're sober, you speak from the heart and it's not just rambling on -- it makes sense," he said. "Now you get to analyze every word and every bar and you make sure everything is on time."

"I do drugs, I don't let drugs do me so I always had a handle on it," Gunplay explained in an interview. "It was just when I was ready to stop messing with certain things, it got blown up. No drugs, no b*tches can f*ck my business up. Once it starts interfering with my business and I saw it taking a toll on my health, my attitude, my outlook on life, I just said 'I'm tired of this ####' and I just quit it altogether. Cold turkey. No rehab, no re -- yeah I did relapse because I went to Colombia for Christ sakes, d*mn [Laughs]. I went over [there] and I relapsed. I said I was gonna relapse, I did it and I came back over here and I haven't touched it since. And I don't plan on touching it."

^^^^ meanwhile your the lame sitting on the internet with ####ty grammar, unable to properly use quotations and capital letters, talking about his chain.

meanwhile 50 isolates himself from the world and talks about his new album that has been pushed back more times than I can count.

Good for him. Mainman can rap, but G-Unit still tore the fur off him just like he was a crackhead from up the way tho.
