Famous Dex had his legion of fans concerned when he abruptly knocked out during a live stream with fans. After concerns of drug use sprouted from social media, the rapper has spoken out about the incident.
Getting back on Instagram Live Tuesday (Dec. 18), the rapper blamed his work ethic–not opioids or lean–as to why he dozed off. “First [off], I’m a human being,” he said. “I work my a** off and once you put in overtime overnight and come in at 4am in the morning and go live, then hey. I’m not going to lie, I was tired and high at the same time.”
In the wake of the deaths of Mac Miller and Lil’ Peep as well as the recent rehab stint of Soundcloud rapper Lil’ Xan, drug abuse in hip-hop is becoming a hot-button topic.
“Don’t let the world trick you and be fooled,” Dex said to the camera.
Dex has not held his tongue when it comes to admitting that he used several drugs in the past including lean which led to him being hospitalized.
