Bow Wow Reveals He Was Once Addicted To Lean

Bow Wow be going through it, huh? The artist formerly known as Lil Bow Wow has been ridiculed endlessly on social media (sometimes warranted, sometimes not) and even threatened to quit the biz and get a regular degular job. Now, in the wake of Mac Miller's death, he's revealing that he also struggled with substance abuse issues. His drug of choice? Lean. "To the youth- Stop with these dumb a** drugs,” he began a lengthy Twitter thread. “Im going to let something out. When me and omarion worked on FACE OFF album. I was high off lean everyday! When yall saw me on BET going off on torae i was high off lean. My attitude everything changed.” He went further into his addiction, letting fans know that he was in the throes of addiction during some of the peaks of his career, including his tour with Chris Brown. He isn't looking for pity though, as he just wants the youth not to get lost in the drug culture that's prevalent in music these days. “Kick that s**t! Be a good son or daughter," he urged in closing. "Be the best you. Ima start being more vocal. We gotta save the youth from going out early. Parents watch your kids. Explain to them. We want yall to live man. I almost died f**king with syrup. To this day im affected my stomach will never be the same and it hasn't been." Hopefully Bow's message will be heard by those who need it. #JustSayNo
