American rapper Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, recently made a surprising announcement on social media – he is giving up smoking.

Fans and followers of the rapper had varied reactions to his post. Some were skeptical and refused to believe that Snoop Dogg was giving up smoking, while others took a humorous approach, making jokes about his sudden sobriety.

"He's moving to edibles, letting his lungs rest a little. Eat up, champ," wrote one user. Another commented, "The courage, the boldness, the ability to announce that you're stopping something that made you SO SO SO much money which created a character that you and all of us are used to is truly remarkable." A third user, who identifies as sober, welcomed Snoop Dogg to sobriety, saying, "As a sober man, I speak for me and all of us sober people around the world, welcome to sobriety!!!"

There was also a humorous comment, with someone jokingly noting, "I can't get over the fact that homie dropped this statement like he lost a loved one." Another user added, "Sheeeesh, easiest marketing for Snoop Dogg edibles ever."

According to Sky News, Snoop Dogg's announcement comes just days after he and celebrity chef Martha Stewart released a line of 'Best Bud Bags' - designer clutches that come with a lighter and a compartment for weed.

Snoop Dogg initially rose to fame after making several appearances on Dr Dre's 1992 album, 'The Chronic,' which prominently featured a marijuana leaf on the cover. He then released his debut album, 'Doggystyle,' in 1993. Since then, he has released 19 albums and performed at the Super Bowl in 2022. Although not on his peak of the career right now, he keeps coming in the limelight due to his humour on social media and in 2020 an unusual beef with the real slim shady aka Eminem.
