I was listening to the song Rollin (Remix) by Kid Cudi feat. Jackie Chan with my buddies the other day and I noticed at one part Cudi says, "cant feel the left side of my face". My friend Jonathan (names have been changed) says "OH! Kid Cudi says the LEFT SIDE of his face goes numb too when he is rolling! I thought it was just me!"
I have never tried MDMA or Ecstacy, but I am prescribed Adderall (Amphetamine Salts) for ADHD. I have never had my face or any part of my body go numb while on it, but Jonathan was telling me that sometimes when he is on his Adderall or Ritalin the left side of his face goes numb.
What seems more stange than just having your face go numb is the fact that Jonathan says it is specifically the LEFT SIDE of his face that goes numb and the lyrics of the song say, "cant feel the LEFT SIDE of my face"
Is it purely coincidence or is that actually something that happens when you are rollin?
You need to tell him to get checked out, if it's not some form of stroke or palsy there maybe something neurological going on.
Numbness isn't normal, do you know if he has any other symptoms?
Weakness, slurred speach?
You can't define something as reasonable or plausible by finding a similarity in the lyrics of a song.
There's a big difference between the frozen sensation some people get from stimulants, in the extremeties for example, and numbness down the LEFT SIDE.
I listen to his music regularly and his references to drugs aren't based exclusively on MDMA/XTC.

Reason: Forgot to add my opinion on Kid Cudi. ~<(°•°)>~
thanks for everyone's responces. I've never had any sort of numbness or even a "tingly" euphoric sensation from my prescribed stimulants for my ADHD, but I will mention this to my friend that seem to get a numbing feeling. It kinda worries me now that I know it isn't normal hah
My guess is that "Cudi" is left-handed and is referring to cocaine. Cocaine isn't just a stimulant, it causes localized numbness too. My friend told me when he snorts cocaine, these effects cause him to feel mild numbness on the side of the face he snorted on especially the nostril that the cocaine travelled through.
