Lil Wayne and his cup were a big deal in the not-so-distance past.
At the time, right as the Carter 3 started to heat up the streets, there was significant worry that Lil Wayne was indeed drinking Sizzzurp or something similar to what contributed to the deaths of Big Moe, DJ Screw, Pimp C and others that once drank the presumed confection of codeine and promethazine. Fans were concerned and worried, but thats not something that Weezy seems to value. He wants his DRANK...if he wants it.
In fact, based on this interview with the UKs Tim Westwood, Lil Wayne defends his right to drink something that was allegedly lean, but that which he no longer drinks by his own admission. Does that make sense? He never quite confirms, but tells critics where to put their mouths. Even further, Wayne gives the Cup come credit for his popularity, his creativity and his full injection into the mainstream.
He admits that the Cup is gone for now.
I probably should pick that cup up, he said.
