Bow Wow Talks About His Lean Addiction

Bow Wow opened up about his dangerous lean addiction and asks young people to ‘Break the Cycle’.

The death of Mac Miller hit home for many people who have dealt with addiction and a number of hip-hop artists have raised their voices to discourage kids from taking drugs.


On Tuesday, Bow Wow took to Twitter to open up about his own struggles with lean, confessing that he was drinking it every day while making the 2007 album Face Off with Omarion. Bow Wow wrote, “To the youth- Stop with these dumb ass drugs. 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.”





Bow Wow revealed that the substance impacted the way he acted, and his attitude—and that he almost died from his addiction. “Kick that s***! Be a good son or daughter. 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****** with syrup,” he wrote.
