Gucci Mane has been going berserk lately. He spewed a bunch of hate speech about Brick Squad and how he banged Nicki Minaj via Twitter, and then his own friend called the cops and had him arrested for erratic behavior (getting an ice-cream cone tatted on his face wasn’t a first clue?) — but it seems all that is in the past now.
Yesterday, Gucci got back on Twitter, talkin’ about how he woke up in a hospital ashamed and embarrassed about his behavior, apologizing for the shenanigans, and admitting to a terrible ten-year lean addiction. In case you’re too privileged and white to understand, lean is codeine cough syrup mixed with soda for an ultimate #traplyfe experience.
As Gucci said, “that shit ain’t no joke.” He claims to barely remember all the things he’s done, and he’s going into rehab while under incarceration. But he’s not the first rapper to fall victim to addiction, and thankfully, he’s still alive. Some of these other hip-hoppers aren’t so lucky.
