Choppa has often promoted his clean lifestyle, including meditation, and revealed that he stopped smoking weed earlier this year.
“After I got out that meditation, I just started to realize everything was energy,” he told Fox Soul’s “The Mix.” “I tried to smoke when I came out of my meditation and I ate some meat, and after I did that, I felt the same way I did before I meditated. I started to realize what was making me think a certain way. I kid you not, I cold-turkeyed myself a few days later and I stopped eating meat. I told my friends if they was around me smoking weed, they couldn’t be around me. I really started to cut a lot out of my life.”
He currently remains behind bars, while his bond has been set at $4,500.
