Lil Wayne Confirms Addiction to Sizzurp

by at . Comments

Lil Wayne is admitting he has/had a substance abuse problem ... specifically sizzurp.

The rapper claims he frequently pounded the codeine-based drink, often spoken about by artists in his genre in an attempt to sound hard, but only 'cause he was "sick."

Wayne spilled his guts in a new documentary-style video shot by one of his pals, saying he first started drinking the stuff when idol Pimp C would often rap about it.

Pimp C died of an overdose of sizzurp in 2007.

Ahhhhhhhm Baaaaaaaack

Im'ma letchu in on a li' summin...

Weezy claims he relied on the gangsta beverage as he became more famous, saying he needed the drink to help him cope with the pressure of being a celebrity.

However, he insisted he quit using the stuff last year, and in the video his buddy shot, Wayne explains he no longer needs it because, "I'm not sick anymore."

Sounds like someone realized "How to Love" himself.

We just hope T.I. and Tiny follow his mature lead.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
