Gucci Mane took to Twitter to reveal to his fans and supporters his 10-year bout with Lean addiction.
The Bricksquad 1017 rapper says he will be entering rehab to fight his addiction to the codeine concoction drink.
Gucci is currently incarcerated after police found him in an erratic state last week. Authorities found marijuana and a firearm on his person.
Gucci allegedly cursed and threatened officers. His condition prompted authorities to take him to a hospital.
Gucci, whose birth name is Radric Davis, apologized to family and fans for his actions, saying he was “embarrassed.”
“Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention. (Cont)
“I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY! (Cont)
“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
Gucci even apologized to fellow Hip Hop entertainers for a rant that shook social media. Gucci hurled shots at former rap protégé Waka Flocka and Cash Money rapper Drake.
Gucci even detailed his sexual exploits with numerous celebs, models and socialites, including Hip Hop bombshell Nicki Minaj.
“Keyshia Dior Kaoir I’m sorry. Please forgive me.
“I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my niggas. I 100% regret my words & actions,” he wrote.
Bricksquad Monopoly affiliate Frenchie attributed Gucci’s actions to drugs, according to an interview with Hip Hop magazine XXL.
“I know for a fact, I know it’s the drugs,” the “Power Moves” rapper told XXL. “Y’all see the tweets man, y’all see how he talking, you ain’t going to talk to me and say your Twitter is hacked, your fucking Twitter ain’t hacked. I don’t believe it. All of a sudden you get 2 million followers and now your Twitter is hacked? Fuck outta here.”
Lean, often called “Sizzurp” or “Purple Drank” has its origins in the South after Houston, TX producer DJ Screw popularized the beverage, a concoction made of promethazene-codein cough syrup, Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy.
Lean, when induced, provides its user a sedated feeling.
Gucci often promoted the illegal drink in his music.
In song “Darker,” Gucci raps, “My niggas drink Lean, not water.”
