Lil Wayne Update: “Not Close to Death” But “Drank Too Much Sizzurp”
May this be a lesson: Sizzurp is bad news.
Lil Wayne is reportedly recovering from a health scare that resulted from drinking too much codeine-laced cough syrup known as sizzurp, according to Us Weekly.
"Wayne is fine," a source reveals. "He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high."
After drinking too much of the "purple drank," as it's known, the 30-year-old rapper was then rushed to the hospital.
"He needs rehab, but he's not close to death or anything," the source continues. "He's fine and just coming down off the high."
Lil Wayne has made no secret of his love for sizzurp over the years. He released a song in 2008 called "Me and My Drank," in which he rapped about the concoction, "Thinkin' about a certain somebody, that perfect somebody sexy purple body."
