Lil Wayne Still Addicted?

Lil Wayne was candid about his past addictions in a new interview. While explaining that he's never been into 'hard' drugs, the rapper says he still sometimes misses drinking 'syrup' and he hasn't been smoking weed since he's been on probation.
But he doesn't sound 'done' with drugs.
"I'm good. I ain't tripping. I'm used to it now," he says. "But I was never on heroin or cocaine or Ecstasy or nothing like that. I drank syrup and smoked a lotta weed. I wish I could be back on it. That's how it f*cking feels. [cracking himself up] "How does it feel to be sober?" I'll be like, "It feels f*cked-up." What you want me to say? "It feels great"? No. I was on something that the doctor prescribed. I was ill, and that was helping me...I cannot wait until I get off probation, sweetheart. Not for syrup. No, not for syrup. I stopped syrup May 9 of 2009. But nobody knew. Because I still rapped about it. Because I respect the culture of where it came from. I still rep that sh*t."

You "respect the culture of where it came from"? Really? Come on Wayne, we know you have already been doing it your whole career, but you ain't gotta lie to kick it... And respecting a "culture" that taught you to drink cough syrup on a regular basis is fucking retarded.

lol, some of you are so stupid. Yea its his life but when his life involves how our youth are growing up its a problem. Nothing he said sounds intelligent. But because he has money its okay because yo can pay off the FBI and that is something to be proud of right. You ppl are pathetic and just as ignorant as he is.

All of you sound like complete idiots LOL. Follow an idiot like Lil Wayne??? This is what's wrong with this country. A bunch of young idiots following other idiots! WAKE THE HELL UP!!!

Why do fans always try to stick up for the artist like they give a shit? Money doesnt change the person inside...if you have to continue to do drugs cause it makes you feel good then you're trying to fill a void just like lil wayne...hes just as bad of a role model and idiot like the rest of these celebrities ...just because u have a lot of money doesn't mean u r set for life and being envious of lil wayne is definitely stupid. Not only is his music pointless but so is his reasoning. And for people to idolize him is mind-blowing and baffling.

I mean I guess talking about is a part of the healing process...but I must say I do not approve of his take on the topic...Never ever would I glorify or support someone making self destructive choices and then turning around and saying they wish they still was and plan on making those same choices again....I DO NOT care how rich and famous he is DUDE IS WRONG AND ITS OBVIOUS THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH HIM...and if it was a loved one or anyone you cared deeply for I hope to God that anybody would want differently for them...come on this dude has people that look up to him and this is his viewpoint?!! ####NOT COOL ####GOD BLESS HIM THOUGH

One retard leading other idiots. One dumb ass is talking about money, the other about how he is talking about his life and for that we can't say anything. The way you guys talk have no correlation with what is going on. What does being rich have to with him being addicted to cough medicine and acting like is cool? Then one a idiot friend of yours od's on it, you are the same idiots crying about how f8ck up it is.

yeah my heart goes out to him though while going through his tough times but if aint sincere about his own recovery and reconciliation...then I cant do anything but hope and pray for better for him but the dude has always been reckless and promoted that behavior and the same things will surely do him in if he doesnt change...God dont like ugly

Really tho lil wayne...i pray for him and his future...he is truly artistic and representing for black hip hop culture and i am just not feeling it. I am ashamed that so many of our young black men want to be like him.

One should not judge unless you have been in the other persons situation or shoes. And its obvious that no one who has left a comment has any idea of recovery or the processes in which we must go through. When he states that he misses drinking syrup does not necessarily mean he wishes to continue to do so. We are taught that you talk about sh*t till you get better with it so I hope he continues to talk about whatever his issues are until he feels strong enough to let go and let GOD!

First of all, "Syrup" isn't cough syrup, it's Promethazine (anti-nausea medication/sedative) with codine (a mild opiate)... So that actually makes it worse. He "was" a heroine addict. That's all codine is, mild heroine ie vicodin, percocet, etc... I love Wayne, because of his creativity and skills as a lyricist. But I was glad to hear he was off the syrup. Now the only thing he says he can't wait to get back to is weed. I don't feel there's anything wrong with that. Weed is not that big'a deal. And no, I'm not a weed smoker. I'm in the Army as a paratrooper, so that's not allowed. But yall stop trippin on wayne, the dumbest thing he said in this interview was that he still reps syrup. If you're over it, stop reppin it. That's some fake shit to me. But other than that... Yall leave the man alone. He quit syrup, the only serious of the 2 drugs. People that work with'em say his attitude is a lot better and he's nicer to work with. So chill... He did a good thing.

NO ONE controls what another individual decides to do in their life. I don't understand how the majority of the people complain and are offended by what he said/ or says yet you condone it when listening to other music. It's all the same... Sex, drugs, money in large amounts its all bad for you. How about you ban the movies for making our children violent how about reality shows and majority of videos for degrading woman? you complain about it and the mass majority still continue to support or condone even if they decide to not like Lil Wayne.. Quit being a hypocrite wake up and think before you speak.

oh yea and one last thing do not comment about how something is right and wrong when you can't even talk without calling someone out of their name or being ignorant.

and to the comment analyzing the ingredients in syrup... i agree with you 100% i stopped smoking but find nothing wrong with it. people do not realize alcohol is more of a drug than marijuana yet it is legal and over half the population consumes it... reality check

I understand where everyone is coming from with this, but as "ordinary" people we forget that the famous are just people who get paid for their talent. They have the same problems as regular people; the only difference is they have money. Parents stop looking for them to be role models. Set the example yourselves. Stop blaming the entertainment industry for the problems with our youth. You're the parent, that means you are responsible. You are their life teachers. Are you just gonna let tv teach them or are you gonna teach them yourselves? As for Lil Wayne, the only thing we can do for him is pray for him. It's his life and this is how he chose to live it. Its sad but true.
