Kanye West is one of the most outspoken performers in the world who doesn’t care what you think of him. But does he smoke weed?
I’m sure you don’t need to hear this again, but Kanye West is a pretty polarizing figure. A great performer who’s also one of the most annoying celebrities in the world, West is quick to strike up controversy, be that due to his lyrics or through his weirdly vindictive relationship with Taylor Swift. When’s that gonna end?
Anyway, let’s move on to what really matters: does Kanye West smoke weed?
Unlike other rappers and musicians who are unabashed smokers, marijuana is one of the few things that Kanye is kind of discreet about. While he references weed in some of his old music, like “Get ‘Em High,” that doesn’t really mean anything.
In 2012, West supposedly upset the royal family while staying in a room above them in a hotel in London. Reports say that he was listening to loud rap music and smoking tons of weed with guests, including Common, Big Sean and Pusha T.

“Kanye had rented out the top floor and we was banging that b*tch out. Every room was a studio. The Royal Family below were complaining, like, ‘We got all this loud-ass rap music above us and weed smoke.’ They paid all this money and you don’t expect to get these kind of complaints,” said Big Sean. Still, we can’t really count on the veracity of this information since the article isn’t from the most credited source and it sounds pretty racist.
In 2015, West suggested that he had smoked weed right before giving that weird speech after he was awarded the VMA’s Video Vanguard Award.

So, while West might not be a marijuana advocate or a regular weed user, it’s safe to assume that he has consumed weed from time to time. It might even make him weirder than usual.
