Renowned American rapper Snoop Dogg recently caused a stir on social media with an unexpected announcement – he’s bidding farewell to smoking. Last week, the artist behind hits like “Young, Wild, and Free” took to social media to share, “After much consideration and conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke. Please respect my privacy at this time.” This declaration sparked widespread speculation about why Snoop, widely recognized for his unabashed use of marijuana, was choosing to quit the habit. Fans were quick to congratulate the 52-year-old rapper on his newfound commitment to sobriety.
However, Snoop Dogg has since clarified the real intent behind his earlier message. In a video posted on X (formerly Twitter), Snoop revealed that it was all part of an advertising campaign. Seated in a tranquil wooded area with the sounds of chirping crickets in the background, he declared, “I have an announcement. I’m givin’ up smoke.”
He continued, “I know what you’re thinking: Snoop! Smoke is kind of your whole thing! But I’m done with it.” Snoop explained that he was tired of the incessant coughing and the persistent scent of marijuana clinging to his clothes. His solution? Going smokeless with Solo Stove, a company specializing in innovative fire pits. According to Snoop, Solo Stove’s fixed fire pits eliminate the smoke, addressing the very issues that led him to contemplate quitting in the first place.
In the latter part of the video, the rapper demonstrated his newfound smokeless lifestyle by roasting marshmallows on a Solo Stove fire pit. It was a creative and unexpected twist to an announcement that had initially baffled many of his fans.
On Monday, November 20, the details of Snoop Dogg’s latest venture officially came out on the Solo Stove firepit company’s website, accompanied by the headline, “Go smokeless with Snoop Dogg.” In an accompanying statement, the Doggyland rapper expressed his enthusiasm for the product, saying, “I love a good fire outside, but the smoke was too much. Solo Stove fixed fire and took out the smoke. They changed the game, and now I’m excited to spread the love and stay warm with my friends and family.”
This revelation sheds light on Snoop Dogg’s decision to ‘give up smoke’ and unveils a surprising endorsement deal with Solo Stove. It appears that the rapper is embracing a new chapter in his relationship with fire and smoke, one that aligns with Solo Stove’s innovative approach to outdoor fires. Whether this unexpected turn of events resonates with Snoop’s fanbase remains unknown, but it certainly adds a unique and unexpected twist to the rapper’s public persona.
