In a recent interview on the The Jess Cagle Show. Idris admitted to being a weed dealer. Stating; I did a lot of things, some things I’m not proud of — though he did have some memorable clients. I did that for a little bit just to, you know, help pay the way. I DJ’ed quite a bit. I was a doorman. I was a doorman at Carolines comedy club [in New York], which is fascinating now, when I meet the comedians that you kind of remember the English guy. Tall English guy with the funny accent and the little hair.”

One of those comedians? “David Chappelle remembers me ’cause he used to buy weed from me,” Elba said. “Anyway, moving on. Yeah, I did all kinds of things to be honest, all kinds of things.”
