Blaklez Pleads With Youth To Stop Taking “Lean”
Blaklez Pleads With Youth To Stop Taking “Lean”: South African rapper, Blaklez has pleaded with South African youths to stop taking Lean. “Lean” is a recreational drug, created by combining prescription-grade cough syrup with a soft drink and hard candy.
The drug is known to be addictive because of its contents which include opioid codeine and the antihistamine promethazine which is contained in most cough syrups. Lean is also known as purple drank, purple lean, sizzurp, dirty sprite, and lean drink. Young users mix this with a soft drink, the most popular being Sprite. Once the cocktail is mixed, it’s referred to as a Dirty Sprite, or you might hear people say they’re “sipping muddy” because the drink mixed with cough or fever syrup gives it a brown tinge.
Some SA artists have been known to be on what is known as the “Lean Team”. However, some of them have been coming out to warn youths on the dangers associated with the syrup lately.
Young kings, please stop drinking lean 🙏🏾
