Cozz Tweeted out back in 2019 that he was sober.

“Been sober for a week now,” the Tweet said. “I know that ain’t long but for a n***a like me that shit is an accomplishment.”

The lyrics for his song “Addicted” addressed him knowing about his addictions.

“Ditchin’ my addiction is like switchin’ my pigment. Shit, if you got any advice, I’m here to listen. We all got plenty vices, and mine no different.”
