Katt Williams Addresses Rumors Of Cocaine Abuse

We haven’t heard much good about Katt Williams in quite awhile. In fact most of the headlines we’ve posted have either been about Hazel-E or some kind of bizarre behavior but Complex sent a writer to his Nashville, Tennessee tour stop last month and the interview included a visit to a golf course and some rare gems about Katt (including Luenell’s revelation that he didn’t have front teeth until after he did Friday After Next in 2002). Interestingly enough Katt chose the interview as the time to dispute longtime rumors that he’s a drug addict. Check some excerpts below:

On his rumored drug use

If I had ever even tried cocaine, I wouldn’t have made it to this level. I’m not built that way. I can’t take those types of sidetracks in life. It’s already difficult enough for me sober.”

“Drugs may get you as high and hyper as you think I am, but don’t worry—you won’t be able to keep that up. You’re going to have to go back and recharge. And I don’t. So it’s going to be rough for you, keeping up with this energy, because it’s not manufactured. It’s just a dude going on stage and giving an audience everything he has.”

On his career-defining special, The Pimp Chronicles Part 1

“I finally crafted a set nobody would steal. I am talking about terrible, awful things for an hour, and we do nothing but laugh. It’s hilarious.”


On the job of a comedian

“That is the job of a comedian. To take unpleasant subject matter and forcibly, with his hands, wring the funny out of it.”

“If you didn’t laugh at Jared Fogle, then you would cry.”

Soooo do you believe him about the drugs or nah?
