In a casual conversation with Tim Westwood, a down-to-earth Danny Brown exposed the very ugly side to using lean (aka sizzurp) and revealed just why he had to give up the purple Sprite.

Danny didn’t need to go to college to gain his “Freshman 15.” His excessive all-night binges on the promethazine codeine mix resulted in a nasty gut before he decided to call it quits.

“I was getting too fat man! I gained like 15 pounds,” explained the off-kilter rapper who noted his love for the finer threads in life. “I like wearing Belmonte jeans and Rick Owens t-shirts. You can’t be wearing Rick Owen looking pregnant, you know what I’m sayin’? Can’t have the Gucci Mane belly and wear high-end fashion [Laughs], one of ’em had to go.” It only took him two weeks to get his mind right, for those wondering about the sobering aftermath.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Detroit’s own went on to attribute diarrhea as one of the major side affects to sipping on the cough syrup elixir. Even worse, depending on the amount you consume daily, constipation can occur just as well. Graphic, we know, but that’s just how frank this particular conversation was.
