Chief Keef Blames Poor Quality Of ‘Bang 2’ & ‘Almighty So’ On Lean Addiction & Bad Mixing, Says He’s Back To Old Sosa



Chief Keef claims to be back to “old Sosa” after pinpointing his faults in past music releases.

Sosa admitted he is no longer a fan of his last two mixtape projects “Bang 2” and “Almighty So.” He gave himself constructive criticism after attributing his low performance on those mixtapes to lean addiction and bad mixing.

“Yes I hate my own last mixtapes Cuz I was leaning and mixed them myself! Thought I Was! But I’m back No worries.



“I’m always keeping shit 300 but I stopped lean Time to turn up,” he wrote on Twitter.



Sosa’s current project “Bang 3” is being mixed by Interscope engineer Chris Cheney.



Sosa admitted in mid-December he gave up Lean.

“King Keef Has no Genre Nor Language #JusGloTalk Understand Or suck my Duck Oan I don’t sip lean nomo,” he wrote.



Lean is a drink concoction made of promethazene-codeine cough syrup, Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy.

Lean, often called “Sizzurp” or “Purple Drank” has its origins in the South after Houston producer DJ Screw popularized the beverage.

Lean, when induced, provides its user a sedated feeling. Long-term use can have deadly side effects.

DJ Screw was found dead Nov. 16, 2000 in his studio following an overdose from a combination of Lean and drugs. A toxicology report found codeine, Valium and PCP in his system.

In September, Gucci Mane revealed he was battling an addiction to Lean following an infamous Twitter rant. Gucci later professed he would be entering rehab.

“I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit (cont)



I’m addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse. (Cont)



I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me (cont)



during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers. #GUWOP



Lil Wayne suffered complications from long-term lean use of the beverage. He was rushed to the hospital in March after suffering multiple seizures.

Dr. George Fallieras, an emergency room physician and hospitalist at Good Samaritan Hospital, said codeine is an “opiate” and is in the “same family of drugs as heroin and morphine,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

Fallieras commented codeine addiction is the same as heroin addiction, only without the needles. This is due to the large amounts of codeine Lean drinkers induce.

He further said it is difficult to overcome Lean addiction and likened codeine withdrawal to the worst flu possible.

“One patient said to me, ‘Imagine the worst flu when you’re shivering, you’re vomiting, you can’t eat, you have diarrhea, every atom in your body hurts, you can’t sleep, you lie on the floor just shivering … and multiply that times a million,’” Fallieras told the Times. “And you know if you can just take the pill or inject yourself with heroin, that it just all goes away.”

Sosa is currently prepping his much-anticipated “Bang 3” mixtape. Sosa, who is currently in court-ordered rehab for violating his probation, will release the project in March.

“It’s official! We finna drop Bang 3 on 3/3 on y’all niggaz!! Me n @thelarryjackson in here putting them finishin touches on it we comin! 1st video on week of Feb,” the caption on Sosa’s IG post read.



Sosa is currently looking at a mid-February release date as revealed on the Interscope rapper’s social media accounts.

“Feb 12th I’m out this bitch and I miss my fans turn up!!!



“I’m out in February tho, Sosa wrote.
