Danny Brown Talks Lean’s Damaging Effects

blame it on Meka April 30, 2014

It’s common knowledge that quite a bit of rappers (and, as a result of it, their fanbase) suck down lean, syrup, sizzup, or whatever it decided to go by on any given day, yet not too many people are aware (or probably care for that matter) about the damaging effects of the stuff, with notable people such as Pimp C and DJ Screw actually dying from it. Sitting down with Tim Westwood, Danny – he himself a former purveyor of the drink – spoke on how it actually started messing with him (he started getting a “Gucci Mane belly”), as well as what he went through while getting off the stuff.

He also talked about his song “25 Bucks” with Purity Ring, style, and more. You can check that out below.

    Good thing they took it off the market last week. So its gonna be harder to get. But I’m not too suprised at the effects. Like the shit is cough medicine. Its only suppose to be if your sick. If your not it will react way differently. I’m all for weed. But lean is one of the dumbest drugs/ trends i ever seen since white kids were huffing air.

      Lean’s main ingredient is Codeine & that’s not going anywhere. Other companies can still make the cough syrup. Codeine is an opiate many times weaker than Heroin but you can still overdose like Heroin. Many people who who are lean fiends don’t even realize that they are using a weak form of dope.


    guwop backed up just like his career rip

    nice interview, had my phase with it after high school, glad to be off it. it’s all nice in the moment and it goes down easier than most other drugs since it is mostly soda, but it really aint worth the after effects unless you find the idea of being half braindead for an evening fun.
