Drugs (and the use of them) continue to be the subject of many rap songs. Most rappers have made a song (or a career) out of cranking out party anthems that mention the use of illegal substances as a way to relax and get away from the pressures of life. References to drugs like molly, codeine, cocaine, meth and ecstasy are pretty prevalent in most of the hip hop songs that are on the radio and floating around social media these days. Unfortunately, many fans of rap (particularly those who are young and impressionable) tend to follow the “advice” of these rappers, only to find that a life that involves heavy drug use really isn’t all that glamorous.
Surprisingly, there are some rappers who actually don’t do drugs. Sure, some of their songs may allude to the fact that they love to have a good time and immerse themselves in otherwise irresponsible behavior, but they don’t do drugs. A number of these rappers may even reference drugs in some of their songs, but in their real lives, they’re smart enough to stay away from the stuff. So, they get partial credit for that.

Perhaps one of the main reasons rapper 50 Cent doesn’t do drugs is because he used to be a drug dealer. So, he knows first-hand how drugs can literally destroy a person’s life. In addition to staying away from illegal substances, 50 Cent also isn’t a big drinker. He stated during an interview with Piers Morgan that he had a negative experience with alcohol that made him paranoid, so he stays away from it, for the most part. G-Unit, 50 Cent’s rap group, also confirms that the rapper and businessman steers clear of drugs and alcohol. In fact, Tony Yayo admitted that he was actually the biggest drinker in the group.
