J-Swift, you had a very public Cocaine habit. Even almost had a reality show about it. How did you get back on track?

J-Swift: It wasn’t easy. The government forces you into these programs. But the trick is I had to want it. I was in a jail of a different kind because I wasn’t able to make music. I got a computer, a controller, my turntables, and just started to move back into the music. God, my children, my family, my music and my team is what brought me back. It’s a daily struggle I ain’t gonna lie. Like, full disclosure, last September I fell off the wagon and got caught up with a little charge. So I’m back in that program but I’m almost done. And it helps because I don’t know about other drug addicts but I’m the kind of guy that if I have a lot of loose time on my hands then it’s not good. But if I’m busy I don’t even think about it. And I’m blessed because I’m on probation but it’s California and I can smoke weed. (Room laughs) That’s a real plus cause back in the days I couldn’t. And weed is what calms you down, everybody knows cocaine gets you all keyed up and tuned up. And I don’t like prescription drugs because that messes up my creativity and flow. So I thank God that the law is in my favor.

Watch a clip from J-Swift’s “1 More Hit” documentary…

Well score one for the government… go Obama! So on “Soul Flower” Fat Lip closes out the song with a crazy “confession”  “…got more flavor than 7-11 slurpees/If Magic can admit he got AIDS, fuck it–i got herpes…”

Fat Lip: Oh that was a joke. (Room Laughs) I, Fat Lip, do NOT have herpes… definitely! I was just buggin out. You know what, actually I thought I did have herpes back then and I was just trying to be crazy. But I definitely do not.

Wait… You thought you had it?

Fat Lip : Well, I’m saying, yeah. I knew someone who had it and then because I knew that person, I thought I had it also.

“Knew” in the biblical sense…

Fat Lip: Exactly

Jay Swift :I think I associated with that person too and then people started telling me…

Fat Lip : It’s not that person…

Jay Swift : It’s not? Oh well…

Damn, lotta folks running round here with the herpes!

Jay Swift:  Well it’s crazy cause it was certain females in our circle at that time and I had dealt with one of them and all of a sudden, it was like…

LA Jay:… now WE got it! (Room Laughs)
