Meek Mill is currently one of the most established rappers in the modern Hip-Hop world. On top of his great songs, Mill is also a loving and compassionate person, especially towards his family and also his friends.
Meek Mill is also well aware of the horrible effects of opioid addiction, as he reviewed in a 2019 interview that he used to take as many as 10 Percocets every day when he was at the height of his addiction.
“You’re walking with death. Real sh*t.”
While speaking on Gillie Da King and Wallo’s Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, Meek Mill stated he now has a “zero tolerance” policy towards Percocet, partially due to the widespread threat of fentanyl, the deadly opioid that has claimed the lives of many rappers.
“That sh*t is fentanyl. If you take Percs right now, you an asshole. You can die off of just trying to get high, kill half your brain cells in your mind just by trying to get high.
Nine times out of ten, when you get a Percocet off the street, it’s probably gonna be a hit-up Perc. They got tests on the Instagram. We ain’t trying to do all that to get high, man.”
Meek Mill himself then talked about his own addiction battle with Percocet and made it clear that he will never pop a pill ever again in his life.
“I ain’t no get-high n-gga. I did Percs before in my life, got addicted… I been on Percs before fentanyl came out, but still it was, like, an always-open door. If I wanted to do it, I’d just do it on my own. Now that sh*t is a zero tolerance.
I don’t give a f*ck about getting high, I’m not gonna risk my life to get high. You can die. You can have a bad Perc f*ck your head up.”
Meek Mill recently released his fifth studio album Expensive Pain and is more focused on improving his music career than anything else right now and fans are glad about that fact.
