With his highly anticipated album, The Sun’s Tirade, dropping on September 2nd, Isaiah Rashad opened up about his addiction to Xanax and alcohol with Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds on their podcast, Juan Epstein.
It’s been two years since we’ve gotten a new project from the TDE signee. With the Cilvia Demo leaving many fans eager to hear more, Zay joined Schoolboy Q on the Oxymoron tour. It was there where the Tennessee native said his addiction began. “Honestly, I got off the Oxymoron tour kinda addicted to xans and an alcoholic,” he opened. “I fucked up,” he continued. “I fucked up pretty bad, I almost got dropped like three times.”
“I had access to shit I didn’t have before so I’d just wake up in the morning and go buy a pint,” he recalls of his days on tour. When asked how bad his addiction became, Isaiah mentioned that his stomach lining was tore due to substance abuse.
In the Juan Epstein interview, Isaiah goes on to talk about cleaning up his act, how his addiction impacted his life, and more. Listen to the entire interview below:
