The rapper-turned-pop-punk artist opened up about his Adderall use, when he went "from orally taking it to then snorting it," and how that dependency led him to feeling "scared to ever go into a studio if I didn’t have something." He also shared how he's "taking steps" to better himself by starting therapy last month.
"I think I watched myself believe that drugs were how you attained a level, or unlocked something in your brain, and I’ve seen the pros and cons of it," he told Franco. "...Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than commitment to a vice that I believed made the art. I’m taking steps. I had my first therapy session last Thursday. That’s the first time I ever went, 'Hey, I need to separate these two people,' which is Machine Gun Kelly and Colson Baker. The dichotomy is too intense for me."
