Offset thinks he's become a "better person" since he quit drinking lean.

The 32-year-old rap star used to believe that he needed to drink lean - which is a concoction of codeine and soda - in order to make hit records.

During an appearance on 'The Jennifer Hudson Show', Offset explained: "At the beginning of my career, I'm young and I'm first gaining some success, I was drinking lean a lot, right? And so for a minute, my younger brain would tell me, 'This is what's giving me the sauce to put on the songs'.

"But I started to see it affect my family. I got five kids. I got to be a grown man. I gotta take care of the house. And I seen that the people that love me the most, like my mama, would tell me, 'Hey son, you're stronger than that. You need to shake that.'"

Offset ultimately decided to stop drinking lean, and it's totally transformed his career.

The chart-topping rapper - who has Kulture, five, and Wave, two, with Cardi B, as well as Jordan, 13, and eight-year-olds Kalea and Kody from previous relationships - believes he's become much more productive since he quit drinking lean.

Offset - who split from Cardi in 2023 - shared: "I was able to make hard fire songs and I felt like I could record in the daytime and I could get more things accomplished and then I would notice people tell me my attitude or how I'm speaking is more clear or I don't seem agitated and I love that feeling from hearing that from other people."
