The Chattanooga rapper said he was struggling with drug and alcohol abuse for the last couple years talking to Ebro and Laura Stylez of Hot 97. He became addicted to Xanax and alcohol to the point where Top Dawg CEO Anthony Tiffith stepped in. Rashad opened up about his struggles on the Juan Epstein podcast, which got to the point where he was almost dropped from TDE.
