Though Wayne has noted that his straight edge lifestyle has made recording more difficult, he appears to have finally come to terms with his court-enforced sobriety, revealing that it’s a “great feeling” during a recent interview at the Providence, R.I. stop on his I Am Still Music tour.
“It’s a big difference. I almost jumped in the crowd,” the ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’ rhymer told MTV. “I’m sober, I’m sweating. I’m tasting my sweat. My sweat taste different. My sweat used to taste like weed. But now it’s just, I’m like I don’t know what it is … I’m out there, my eyes big, my eyes all wide. I had threw my glasses, I don’t even need these. I could see everything right now. But yeah man, it’s a great feeling.”
A part of being a huge fan of an artist is to almost follow their every move … I’ve been following Wayne since I was coming up out of Power Ranger briefs (ok, well maybe not that long). It’s truly a huge step for him to make a statement such as this one, and it definitely gives his fans a different outlook on him from this perspective. I really have a different respect for him now. Good shit, Wayne!
