Whatever you call the combination of promethazine and codeine laced prescription cough syrup–Lean, Drank, Purple Sprite–and a soft drink of choice, it’s use as a recreational drug has long been rampant. Whether you admit to it or not, it can be easily be abused. One rapper in particular who’s been boasting about his bad habit of sipping on that lean is Chief Keef. Lately, the Chicago rapper has been showing images of promethazine bottles and the ubiquitous styrofoam cups that drank users prefer on his Instagram. We got a feeling that Keef doesn’t have a particularly bad cough, though.
Although Lil Wayne contends that he suffers from epilepsy, many attribute his recent extended hospital stay to abuse of “Texas tea.” Soulja Boy, who makes a cameo on Sosa’s Instagram feed with a cup in hand, was recently spotted sharing many images of his heavy drank sipping as well. It looks like Keef went extra hood and occasionally sips it out of a baby bottle. Make sure your baby daughter KayKay who you’re shelling out that child support dough for stays away from those, buddy. No matter your stance on grown men doing what they want to do, Keef is just 17-years-old with a gang of fans and followers that live to mimic his every move. That can be a dangerous thing.
Details have emerged in Chief Keef’s arrest in December 2011 stemming from an incident where he pointed a handgun at officers. According to DNAInfo.com, Keef left his grandmother’s home holding a coat over his hands in front of his waistband. A policeman stopped to question the rapper, who dropped the coat, flashed a blue-steel handgun and ran away. Officers chased then 16-year-old Keef, who turned around several times and pointed the gun at them. The policemen “discharged their weapons,” but missed. They caught him a half-block later and recovered the pistol, which was loaded. Keef was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was also given a misdemeanor charge for resisting arrest. The “I Don’t Like” rapper will return to court later this month for a probation violation hearing forconducting an interview at a gun range and failing to complete his GED before deadline. If he in fact violated his probation, it is unclear how much time the 17-year-old would serve. In some cases, underage felons are detained with adults at Cook County jail. via:hiphopdx
50 Cent doesn’t have hard feelings toward Chief Keef, but he does believe the young rapper needs a change of scenery. Last week, Chief Keef reportedly missed his own video shoot for “Hate Being Sober,” which features 50 Centand Wiz Khalifa. After the no-show, 50 Cent took to Twitter to inform the fans of the transgression, conveying his bewilderment and suggesting that Interscope could drop Keef.
50 seems to have not taken Chief Keef’s flaking on the shoot to heart, however, as he now says he will help the Chicago rapper get back on track:
@ChiefKeef is my boy I’m a get everything back in place for him. They were gonna just throw him out. 21 Nov 12
Additionally, 50 explained that the problem isn’t Chief Keef, but the peopel the young rapper hangs around:
50 used his time at the video shoot wisely, choosing instead to film a video for his song “United Nations“
