Drinking “Lean” has been a dangerous and self-destructive trend in the Hip Hop Culture for a long time. It’s time to let it go.
In this Vlad TV interview Boosie talks about his past experiences with Codeine: how much he loved drinking the cough syrup at one time to how happy he is now being off of it. He goes in on the health issues associated with the drug as well as the dramatic withdrawals.
Boosie says “Lean” is nothing to play with and it is as serious any other drug. All of these new artists treating this substance like a game should take heed to Boosie’s warnings, he’s been in the game for a while and he knows what he’s talking about.
When I see a lot of new rap artists promoting “Lean” in every video it becomes more painfully obvious how foolish they are. Not only are they spending all of their earnings from their music career on cough syrup but secretly they are hopelessly addicted to it and whether we see it or not it is ruining their life. Being a drug addict is not cool or something desirable. I hope this trend of being “Lean” junkies comes to an end soon.
