AceShowbiz - Yung Gravy was warned by Fred Durst not to get too caught up in drugs. The advice was offered to the 26-year-old rapper by the 52-year-old Limp Bizkit frontman when Gravy supported the band on multiple dates of their "Still Sucks" tour earlier this year.
"The band is really cool and Fred Durst is such a nice guy. The whole band is down to earth," Yung Gravy told NME. "I think any artist gets the same kind of memo from a mentor, but Fred Durst, he was like 'man don't get too into drugs'. That's what everyone says, and that's what I'd say to anyone else [because] I've had phases before when I was too into drugs and drinking."
Meanwhile, Fred previously revealed he has never touched drugs. Speaking about fame, he said, "It was like shooting up. The needle's in, I'm f****** going… not literally, because I've never touched drugs. It was crazy. Everywhere I go, I'm there in person, but I was carrying around this giant person behind me on a chain."
"I didn't say no. I said yes to everything. I was just a kid from a farm in North Carolina, and I wondered how I was sitting in Hugh Hefner's office. I never said no to anything but drugs. Everything else, I said 'Yes'. No girls ever liked me and so when the girls started coming, even though it was superficial, I said yes. I said, 'Bring it on!' I couldn't believe that all of these girls would sleep with me and not care about how boring I am. It was just yes, yes, yes to everything but drugs."
