(AllHipHop News) Lil Boosie, recently released from prison after a five year sentence, is rejoicing for the ending of another torture of his that was seldom known. In an interview with TMZ, the Baton Rouge rapper speaks on his near lethal relationship with codeine cough syrup drink “sizzurp”.
Sizzurp (also referred to as “lean”) is a drink concoction that involves codeine cough syrup. Back in 2011, Boosie was indicted for allegedly attempting to smuggle sizzurp into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Boosie informed TMZ “Once you on, it’s hard to get off … it’s damn near impossible.”
While Boosie admits that the drink tastes like Kool Aid, he does reveal that it almost killed him approximately four times. Yesterday (April 23rd), a representative from a leading producer of codeine cough syrup, Actavis informed TMZ that the negative press over the years has influenced the company to stop production of the medication:
Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product.
