Meek Mill, an American rap artist, has stated that he was diagnosed with emphysema, a medical ailment caused by smoking.
Meek, 36, claims that his doctor urged him to quit smoking or risk living a shorter life than he desired.
According to the Dream Chasers Records president, he is considering relocating to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in order to quit smoking.
The rapper made the announcement on his official Twitter (X) account in response to the news that rap veteran and colleague Snoop Dogg had quit smoking.
Meek wrote, “Ima go to Dubai and completely stop smoking… Ima follow Snoop, my doctor said I have a little bit of emphysema in my chest if I don’t stop smoking; it cuts my lifeline in half.
“I was addicted to the nicotine and this new weed got too many chemicals and was too risky to play with my mental health!”
