Larry David has been a professional journalist for over 55 years and has either spoken to or met almost every important figure over that time span. During a recent interview with Sway on SiriusXM’s Sway In The Morning, the journalist legend spoke about his past marijuana consumption, getting high with Snoop Dogg and even kicks a freestyle.
Back in February 1987, Larry King suffered a serious heart attack, over four decades after his father Edward Jonaton Zeiger died of the same cause. After Admitting that the day of the heart attack is the day he quit, King states he has not smoked a joint in over 27 years, but his friends keep him high:
I spend a lot of time with Snoop Dogg, so I get high just being in his room. Just walking around with him. Willie Nelson, I just [interviewed] Willie in his bus. You go into Willie’s bus, you come out high just sitting in Willie’s bus.
King later says that he was inspired to write a rap song. King kept it completely old school with the flow and delivery but made sure to maintain his journalistic traditions and address the Who, What, When, How and Why:
Here I am at Sirius Radio, hanging out and feeling cool/
Here I am at Sirius Radio, nothing’s going to break this mood.
I’m going to go out today and meet new people on the streets of New York
I’m going to go where I grew up and have some fun and not lose out on any of the cool.
