In the past, Darius has opened up about his hard-partying ways but claims that lifestyle is in his past.

Hootie & the Blowfish earned a reputation as a party-hearty band, with Rucker admitting, “Doing drugs and drinking every night — I’ve done that,” Rucker said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. Adding in a different interview, “We did a four-day [contest to see] who could stay up the longest. God, we used to do dumb stuff.”

But, after becoming a husband and a father he noted that “it’s just not how I want to live anymore.”
