If you’ve ever seen Lil Wayne perform or for that matter on tv in general, you’ll know he carries with him a styrofoam cup. What’s he drinking? Promethazine and Codeine, better known as cough syrup and the same concoction that killed Dj Screw and Pimp C. Lil Wayne spoke to MTV about his addiction to sizzurp. Here’s what the idiot had to say,
“But I’m going through that same shâ€“ with my friends, with my mom. Everybody wants me to stop all this and all that. It ainâ€™t that easy. Do your history, do your research. It ain’t that easy it feels like death in your stomach when you stop doing that shit. You gotta learn how to stop, you gotta go through detox. You gotta do all kinds of stuff. Like I said, I’m a selfish-ass nigga. I feel like everything I do is successful and productive. It’s gonna be hard to tell me I’m slipping. It’s hard to sit and tell a nigga “Stop it”, how can we tell this nigga to stop when every fucking thing he do is successful? This nigga is making progress. He just went and talked to kids and that shit was amazing. You Feel me? So what am I doing wrong?
Let me do me. Everybody’s got their thing. Why focus on me? Don’t compare me to no one. Don’t compare me to no one who has passed, and why they passed. I can walk out this bâ€”h right now and get hit by a bus. Don’t judge me. You wanna judge me, put on a black gown and get a gavel. Get in line with the rest of them that’s about to judge me. I got court dates every other month. It’s me against the world that’s how I feel.
Denial is not just a river in Africa.
