Wiz Khalifa Speaks Out Against Sipping Lean (Video)

Just say no.

Wiz Khalifa has a message for everyone out there who's sipping lean.

The rapper took to Instagram on Saturday to speak out against the popular "purple drank," an alcoholic concoction that's usually a mix of cough syrup, soda, and hard candy. Despite the dangers that are associated with sipping lean — the drink was a factor in the deaths of both Pimp C and DJ Screw — the drink continues to be popular.

"I was doing a little bit of thinking 'cause I like to think a lot," Wiz began. "When a lot of people follow one trend, or find themselves doing the same thing that everybody else is doing, you don't really get somebody who speaks for the other side. So I'ma just go ahead and speak for the other side. Lean is lame."

"Not for the lean sippers," he added. "Don't get in your feelings. It's for the people who don't f*ck with that sh*t. Feel empowered. Know, lean is definitely lame."

More and more rappers have been speaking out against the casual use of opioids, including Russ, who sparked an online debate about drug abuse in the hip hop community when he wore an anti-drug shirt during one of his shows earlier this year, XXL reports.
