This past Friday (September 24), Kid Cudi pled guilty a misdemeanor drug possession charge and was ordered to participate in community service.

According to TMZ, Cudder pled guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree. The plea stems from a June arrest in New York during which the Ohio native broke a woman’s door off of its hinges and was found with what was initially reported as liquid cocaine.

Cudi, however, clarified in the new XXL that it was powder cocaine that he was found with—not liquid. “There was no liquid,” he said. “It was just powder. It was in a glass jar, a vile. People [said], ‘It was in a jar, so it must have been liquid.’ It’s just people not knowing about drugs.”

The G.O.O.D. Music artist also admitted in the story that he used to use cocaine regularly to help him get through interviews. He has since stopped, he says.
