Iconic rapper Snoop Dogg revealed Monday that his initial announcement of “giving up smoke” was merely a marketing stunt for Solo Stoves, smokeless outdoor fire pits.

Snoop Dogg caught the attention of social media on Thursday when he announced that he had decided to give up smoke “after much consideration.” However, he has since revealed that the announcement was meant to drum up excitement for Solo Stoves, with him serving as a “smokesman” for the product.


“I love a good fire outside but the smoke was too much,” Snoop Dogg said in a press release. “Solo Stove fixed fire and took out the smoke. They changed the game and now I’m excited to spread the love and stay warm with my friends and family.”

John Merris, the CEO of Solo Brands, joked that the smokeless fire pit is such a good product that it inspired Snoop Dogg to go smokeless, referring to speculation that the singer had quit smoking marijuana.

“Snoop, like Solo, is about good moments, and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more people to the Solo Stove family,” Merris said.

Speculation of the singer quitting marijuana, which he has been a vocal supporter of, comes after Ohio became the 24th state to legalize marijuana for recreational use earlier this month. On Nov. 7, a majority of voters in the state voted “yes” to Issue 2, which will allow Ohio residents over 21 to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis and up to 15 grams of marijuana concentrates starting Dec. 7.


Snoop Dogg’s initial announcement that he was “giving up smoke” had some believability to it, as earlier this year, he revealed that he was cutting down on his cannabis consumption after becoming a grandfather. The rapper, 51, said he was concerned about how he was living and that he wanted to see his grandchildren “grow old,” according to a report.

“The only way I can do that is to take precautionary steps as far as how I move, who I hang out with, where I go out, my intake, what am I intaking?” Snoop Dogg said.
