Just say no
We’re almost at the end of the year, but before we get there, some of us are changing a few habits to better ourselves. Take me for instance, I’ve decided to embark on what I like to call #SoberOctober: That means, during the entire month of October, I’m shying away from alcoholic beverages. It’s been pretty hard, and even though we’re almost to the end of the month, it’s getting even harder saying no to a shot of Jameson or a sip of Stella Artois.
But for some of our favorite rap stars, refusing a drink isn’t their toughest battle. Rappers are known to love that purple drank or dabble in weed, but there are some who’d rather go the sober route. In case you think you’ve never seen a rapper who doesn’t pop bottles in the club, feast your eyes on these hiphop stars.

Iggy has made it known that she doesn’t drink or do any drugs. If you think about it, she’s never photographed in any clubs or parties. That’s because she makes it a point to follow her own path, not the ones of those drinking and taking drugs at parties.

He used to live a life of crime, but after giving his life to the Lord, Gospel singer Lecrae has left his past and all temptation that comes along with it, in the past.

Since his first single “Thrift Shop,” Macklemore’s image has been pretty on the straight and narrow. But it hasn’t always been that way: Before the fame, he struggled with staying sober his whole life. In an interview, he revealed that he developed a drinking problem at the tender age of 13. In fact, he had a near-death experience sipping on that sizzurp. He’s been clean since August 2008.
