What’s the use? Strung-out from that drug abuse, woe is me
Cole is asking himself what the use of being strung out from doing drugs is. He is also realizing that he doesn’t want to turn out like ODB.
There is also a double entendre on the word use:
–“What’s the use?” as in the saying/question he is asking
-Use as in drug use
