Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg has never been shy about his love for smoking. On the contrary, he could be more open about his frequent use of the recreational drug. Because of this, his social media announcement last week was all the more shocking. On Thursday, the Doggfather claimed that he was giving up smoke.
“After much consideration & conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke. Please respect my privacy at this time,” Snoop wrote over a black-and-white image of himself.
“I’m giving up smoke,” he added in the caption.
Today, however, the ’90s icon took to social media once again to clarify his stance. “I have an announcement,” Snoop Dogg says in his signature soothing tone, hands clasped pensively beneath his face.
“I’m giving up smoke. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Snoop, smoke is kind of your whole thing’, but I’m done with it,” the rapper continued. “I’m done with the coughing, and my clothes smelling all sticky icky. I’m goin’ smokeless. Solo Stove, fix five. They take out the smoke. Clever.”
As the camera pans out, we learn that Snoop Dogg is sitting next to a smokeless fire pit, roasting a marshmallow as he grins about his own ruse.
The Internet is Unsurprised by Snoop Dogg’s “Change of Heart”
As many guessed, Snoop Dogg never planned to give up “smoke.” Rather than edibles, however, as many predicted, he teamed up with Solo Stove for a smokeless fire pit ad and used his announcement last week to stir up the conversation around himself.
It’s no coincidence that Solo Stove also has a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in a few days and will no doubt be the talk of the town on Turkey Day thanks to the assist from Snoop Dogg.
The internet was wholly unsurprised by Snoop’s reveal that he wasn’t actually giving up his favorite recreational drug, with many taking to the comments of the ad to say so.
“For all you MFs that hit me up saying ‘Ice! You heard about Snoop?!! He stopped!’ And I said….’Wait for it.’ Lol. Snoop is too cold. I love it,” said fellow ’90s icon Ice T.
“I told y’all. LMAO Get it Uncle Snoop,” one fan wrote. “Can’t believe people actually thought he was done,” another said.
