SNOOP LION DROPPED IN AT THE SOCIAL MEDIA SITE Reddit to deliver his own version of an AMA…lion style? Interpret that to mean he likes being a big cat: his pot-infused convo was reddit’s second largest AMA session ever, attracting 1.6 million page views that day. Only Obama’s turnout was better at his virtual town hall meeting, which attracted nearly 3 million page views.
Last week, the recently “reincarnated” Snoop posted a photo of himself on Instagram holding up a sign inviting his followers to participate in a fan-run Q&A.
“I am Snoop Lion. Ask me anything,” read the sign which also depicted reddit’s tiny alien mascot at the bottom. While fans had free reign to ask Snoop anything about his illustrious career, talk quickly veered toward a more important topic: the former rapper’s marijuana habits.
“On average, how much do you smoke a week?,” one curious redditor asked.
“81 blunts a day x 7,” Snoop replied. No wonder we can barely understand him, fo’shizzle.
Snoop also revealed that he gets most of his weed for free, and that the longest he’s ever gone without smoking is 164 days.
Lion was also quick to throw his fellow celebrity pot smokers under the bus, saying that Dave Chapelle was “better” at smoking pot than Dr. Dre. Just in case you were wondering.
Apparently the pipe was getting to his head, because Snoop eventually treated the “ask me anything” session into an “ask MYSELF anything.”
“Who da only person that has evr smoked me out?,” Snoop Lion asked in the forum. “ANSWER: willie nelson, wiz khalifa, n b-real!!! my guys!!!”
Throughout the chat, Snoop dropped minor details that weren’t about his love for weed. In addition to loving the sticky icky icky, Snoop listens to K-Pop (shamefully), enjoys kung fu movies, and loves Madded video games.
