Rich The Kid is a young rap star that has made it clear he has no issue funding his extreme weed habit. Making music, touring and running his own record label has left him with little to no time to roll his own blunts. In fact, he is currently hiring two professional blunt rollers to handle that for him. Famous Dex, who is signed to Rich The Kid’s label, is having a harder time justifying his weed spending habits.
Dex is known for his eccentric spin on Chicago drill music. He started to gain popularity on SoundCloud back in 2016, his debut album Dex Meets Dexter was released last month and his following continues to grow.
Famous Dex Opens Up About Weed Spending
Dex recently opened up about his weed habits in detail to DJ Smallz. During their one on one, DJ Smallz asked about what cannabis does for him, his favorite strain, how much he spends on it and more.
At the start of the interview, Dex says, “I’m high right now.” He told Smallz the first time he smoked weed was due to peer pressure from his cousins. He remembers laughing at literally everything and eating a lot. Dex recalled the weed was “reggies” which is a low-quality.
Dex has come a long way from his reggie smoking days. He is far from a lightweight when it comes to smoking weed. In fact, the Chicago-born rapper told DJ Smallz that he goes through “two, three zips a day” which he smokes in a Backwoods blunt packed with at least three to four grams of weed.
“I gotta stop that shit,” he reflected after explaining the quantity he smokes a day.
DJ Smallz then asked how much he thought his weed habit was costing him per month. Dex replied that it was anywhere between five and ten thousand dollars.
Smallz followed up with, “is it worth it?”
“It’s not worth it. I got kids,” Dex replied. He says the weed habit hasn’t gotten in the way of taking care of his kids “but at the same time it’s not worth it because that money can go towards a house, it can go towards a building, I can invest that money.”
Rich The Kid advised him to “save that money.” Since then, he’s been considering several investments.
Famous Dex Net Worth
After releasing six mixtapes, one album and accumulating millions of followers, Famous Dex has an estimated net worth of $600,000 which is expected to increase now that his album is out. He’s been flexing checks since 2016 when he purchased a new home and Lamborghini.
Despite his net worth, five to ten thousand dollars per month on weed is still enough to get Dex to reconsider his spending habits. If you could afford it, would you smoke two to three zips a day?
