Nordan ‘FaZe Rain’ Shat has urged his followers not to abuse prescription drugs while describing the horrible effects that his own struggle with substances has had on his body.

FaZe Rain is a YouTuber and co-founder of FaZe Clan known for his vlogs and gaming videos on the site, with over five million subscribers at the time of writing.

Rain has drawn considerable concern from fans the last few months due to his worrying posts on social media, with both his org and FaZe Banks speaking out about what some saw as worrying behavior that has, in part, been confirmed to be caused by his use of drugs.

On August 30, Rain opened up on Twitter to urge his followers not to abuse prescriptions like “benzos and opioids” and provided some examples of what he’s gone through since quitting as a word of warning.

“Please quit the benzos and opioids,” Rain implored on Twitter. “I’m posting this because I have severe nerve damage. All I know now is pain. I can’t walk anymore & get 30 seizures a day. If I knew this was possible, I’d never have been a f**kboy w drugs.”

The YouTube star has also claimed the nerve damage has left him paralyzed without the use of his legs, which is hopefully just a temporary side effect.

“I cannot walk anymore. I can only move when I call an ambulance to take me somewhere,” Rain revealed. “Trust not having basic motor functions and not being able to do little basic tasks makes u realize a lot.”

But Rain did receive some pushback for bringing his issues to Twitter to share with his fans and the world, with one user criticizing him for “introducing little kids to an evil they aren’t ready to comprehend.”

“I can’t f**king walk. You think I care about Twitter attention???? I have to p**s into bottles and s**t into bowls. Did you go through that? If only you knew what the f**k I been through with your ignorant a**,” before following up. “I deserve it tho.”

Opioids and so-called “benzos” can be some of the hardest and most painful drugs to detox and get clean from for those who have been using, so hopefully Rain’s experiences are only temporary on his way to recovery and he’s able to get back into top content-creating shape.

It looks like things are back on for Joe Rogan and Kanye West, who was slated to appear on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience on October 23 — before the podcast was abruptly canceled due to health issues among staff.

Fans have been itching to see Yeezus make an appearance on the JRE for quite some time, as has Joe Rogan, himself, although things never seemed to pan out perfectly for the celebrity pair.

However, Kanye West abruptly tweeted out about wanting to join the show on October 17, giving listeners high hopes that one of rap’s most controversial figures would be opening up in one of the world’s most popular podcasts to date.

The two were slated for an episode on October 23 before disaster struck, as Joe Rogan revealed in an October 19 Instagram post.

Claiming that producer Jamie had tested positive, Rogan canceled all appearances for the week in an attempt to keep his crew and guests healthy — but it looks like the show is still on the road, as told by another Instagram post on October 23.

According to Rogan, the episode starring Kanye West will drop Saturday, October 24 at 12PM Texas time (Central Daylight Time) — that’s 10AM PST and 1 PM EST.

“Oh yeah we did!” Rogan said of the upcoming episode. “Beyond my expectations, and I think people are going to have a much better understanding and appreciation of how this man thinks. I really enjoyed talking to him, and we had a lot of fun.”

West has recently been shrouded in some controversy due to wanting to run for US President, with wife Kim Kardashian also coming under fire for endorsing him.

This certainly sets the stage for a unique interview perfect for the environment of the Joe Rogan Experience, which features all manner of guests.

With some listeners claiming this next episode might truly “break the internet,” it stands to reason that everyone is hyped up to tune in — but there’s no telling if it will spawn such viral moments as Elon Musk smoking some Mary Jane in the studio.
