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."
