The rapper explained that his porn addiction was triggered when his father left a very particular magazine lying around the house: “For me, Playboy (the erotic magazine) was my gateway to pornography addiction”, a- he started. “My dad had a Playboy and left me out when I was five. It affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life.”

Very stuck on the subject, he no longer wishes to do anything that goes against his religious convictions. “It’s like, with God, I was able to beat things that totally control me,” he explained.
