On the heels of rapper Rich Homie Quan suffering a massive seizure after allegedly hitting the lean hard, we take a look through the prescription-strength drug and its history.
We reported on the “Type Of Way” rapper being rushed to the hospital in Atlanta after he collapsed at a video shoot, which his rep called “heat exhaustion”. With the word going around in the industry that sizzurp, that purple stuff, aka promethazine codeine, played a part in the health scare, all eyes are keeping notice on Quan.
He’s not the only one shy about his love for lean, as rappers are offering up to $100,000 for bottles now that the stuff is being ripped from the shelves. Actavis, the makers of Phenergan-Codeine cough syrup, had enough with the charges and deaths on their hands due to those who want to be like Lil Wayne, and yes, Justin Bieber.
With that said, we’re taking a look at the prescription-strength drug’s history within Hip-Hop.
